Training Events

Between October 2013 and March 2014, we will be holding a number of training sessions to help TEIs prepare for their validation visits. 

These sessions are aimed at TEIs who haven't yet submitted their documents or had their validation visits, in order to help them prepare for these. Each of the training sessions will be the same in content but we are running several of them in order to accommodate TEIs different document submission and validation visit dates.

View the presentation from the training session.

Details of previous sessions are listed below.
