A webinar is a web seminar. Webinars are a way for participants in many different locations to see and hear a presentation. A webinar typically consists of a moderator, one or more presenters, and the online audience.

Webinars will be advertised on the ASCL PD website and also in the ASCL and ASCL PD email newsletters.

ASCL PD webinars are competitively priced. We need to make a small charge to cover the operational and development costs. There is a choice of 2 packages.

An individual webinar price package of £50+VAT

Our full package licence provides access to over 40 sessions, with more titles being added weekly. A licence provides access to both the live and recorded sessions for up to three members of staff per session (based on a single site institution licence).
