As these are online events using Microsoft Teams and we can't actually meet you in person you will be asked to complete a PCS learner enrolment form prior to the events. We are required by the Department for Education to gather evidence to show that real people engage in our learning events and being able to do this supports our on-going funding to promote learning. After we receive your learner enrolment form for the dates you wish to attend you will be sent the link to join the Microsoft Teams meeting(s) at least a day before each event is due to start.
