e1 Workshops

Dear schools,

In view of School ICT News Bulletin no. 146 (05/6/2009) advising that summer 2009 e1 Support Workshops have been cancelled due to lack of suitable venue availability, we ask that schools do not confuse this with e1 implementation training (e1 training day 1, 2 and 3). None of the e1 implementation training has been cancelled.

To clarify, e1 Support Workshops are regular events for schools that have completed the entire training/transfer process (having completed e1 implementation training). For these schools, please be assured that we have dates in place for e1 Support Workshops during autumn term 2009 – for which invites will be sent before summer break to allow dates to be booked in diaries well in advance.

Schools that are scheduled to attend implementation training day 3 at the start of autumn term 2009 will not receive invite to attend autumn 2009 e1 Support Workshops. This is because the afternoon of training day 3 is dedicated to addressing initial usage issues and offering support (as schools start to use e1 after day 2 of e1 implementation training) – which negates the need to attend an e1 Support Workshop.
