'Free to Schools' workshops and courses
HOW IT WORKS
In these cash strapped times few schools can afford the luxury of parent workshops and courses. The Free to schools option means that parents pay for their places (as they do at central venues) but the school gains some advantages by hosting the workshop. These include:
WHAT DOES THE SCHOOL HAVE TO DO?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Someone at the school needs to select the workshop and pick a date. Then when the electronic flier arrives they need to ensure it is sent out via parentmail. Someone at the school will also be responsible for allocating the school's free places - and that is about it.
Q. What time are the workshops - most of our parents work?
A. You pick the time though the most common start times are 7.00pm, 7.30pm or even 8.00pm. Workshops last for 2 hours - courses vary but times are always made clear on the fliers created for your event.
Q. How many people do you take?
A. I have a maximum of 30 for a workshop, other courses may be smaller as they involve more interraction. All the workshops are available as 1.5 hour talks if required, talks have no limit to numbers but are probably less effective.
Q.What if only a few people sign up?
A.I will run a workshop if I have 6 paying customers or more (obviously I prefer a full house). If places are unfilled two or three weeks before an event I will offer places to other local schools and parents on my mailing list to fill the places.
Most workshop titles are available for both Primary and Secondary parents - with suitably adapted content.
