Guild’s Easter Virtual Training update

Dear all,

Please see this update from Helen regarding the upcoming Easter Virtual Training. Training has had to be re-organised because of very positive interest in participating. The good news for those who forgot to register means there is now a further opportunity to do so. Don’t delay!

Best wishes,


Helen’s update:

Branches – please pass on to your members soonest.

An update on the Easter virtual training. 

We had more people register interest in multiple themes than anticipated, so have rearranged slightly in order to allow people to attend more than one theme. Timetabling still means you can’t necessarily attend everything, but we hope that you’ll be able to find time to attend some of the sessions. They are intended to be interactive, so make sure you bring those questions you’ve always wanted answering. The timetable can be seen below.

For the Towers, Knowledge Base, First Steps and Plain Methods you will need to register, using the links below, and state which theme you are interested in. This is so that we can assign you to the breakout room for the course you wish to attend. 

If you have not expressed interest so far, there is still time to register for the different sessions.
