    Hi there,

    I don’t understand how to sign up for the training? I have been to CPD calendar and clicked on the dates at added it to my calendar. Do I just show up on the day and join the meeting with the meeting link or is there some way to let them know I have would like to join before hand? Thanks

      Hi Danielle,
      Yes, if you just use the meeting link provided. Once you join the chat, type hello and the name of your school in the chat box. My colleague will then collate the names at the end of the training and share with CPD admin staff so these hours can be added to your record.

        Hi Monica,
        Apologies I did not reply prior to the training, I’ve just read your comment. I hope you managed to join last week and you will also join in future sessions.
        You are welcome to join using the Google Meet link provided. As you work within Moray Council, there is no need to register before the sessions. You will be asked to share your email address during the Google Meet session via the chat box to allow resources/links to be shared with you.
        Thank you,

      Hi Brandon,
      You are welcome to join – the Google Meet link is meet.google.com/czr-xqsg-xip and there is no need to register beforehand.
      Yes, that is the correct link for training videos – next weeks session is on Phonological Awareness.

        Hi Laura,

        Thanks for all this information. From my understanding we either join on Tuesday or Wednesday at 1pm. How long does the training usually last?
