Webinars

Our webinars are free virtual training that you can take part in from the comfort of your own desk. You only need a computer or a phone to join. Our interactive webinars normally last around 30-40 minutes and they will be presented by one of our experienced Employee Relationship Managers, and are an ideal opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the Scheme.

Our webinars include:
