What is a webinar?
A webinar is a training seminar, talk or event conducted over the internet.
Webinars are live online events that can involve delivering training, talks, discussions, coaching, or even demonstrations.
Ultimately, webinars are an accessible and efficient way to share information with you whilst you are sat in comfort in your own home without having to pay out for costs such as childcare, transport or accommodation.
What software/app do I need to attend a webinar?
Once you have paid and booked onto a webinar you will receive an email with the access link and instructions on how to attend. Please make sure you check your junk folder if it doesn’t land in your inbox once you have registered and save the event to your calendar so you don’t forget.
Webinars are run using Zoom. There is no extra charge to use this service. There are video tutorials on the Zoom website that can be used to familiarise yourself with how it works.

Can I ask questions during a webinar?

On webinars with fewer attendees the presenter may take the decision to allow video/audio questions.
TCC On Demand
How do I access an On Demand session
All the On Demand sessions are available to purchase from a dedicated page
Once you complete the purchase, accessing the same page should now reveal the embedded video(s) for you to watch within the purchased time period (usually 7 days). You will also have access to download the associate resource pack. You can check if you still have access to a particular recording from the Purchased Content link on the My Account page.
You should not need any extra software to view the On Demand session, or to download the resources.
We do not allow for recordings to be downloaded/saved for copyright reasons, sorry.
Can I purchase access for my school/group?
We can arrange block access to a recording if needed. Please contact us and outline your requirements to start the conversation.
I purchased a session but can't see it.
If you purchase an On Demand session, typically you will have 7 days in which to watch the videos before your access expires. You can check if you still have access to a particular session from the Purchased Content link on the My Account page.
If the session is still on your list of purchased content, but the page is not showing the video or resources download, then the problem may be that your browser has stored an older copy of the page in it’s cache. There are a couple of things you can try to remedy this.
- Whilst on the relevant page, force your browser to re-load it by pressing CTRL + F5 (PC) or ⌘ + F5 (Mac)
- Try using an incognito browser session to access the page (you’ll need to log in again)
- Clear your browser cache completely – instructions at https://www.refreshyourcache.com/en/home/
If you are still experiencing issues you may need to contact your ISP to see if they cache website pages on their servers. If this is the case then they may be able to refresh the page manually, or you may have to wait a few hours for their caches to be refreshed automatically.
If all these measures fail then please contact us so we can investigate further.
