WEBINARS

Offering webinars is part of HPCI’s mission to help parents and carers increase their understanding, knowledge and confidence on a range of SEND topics.  We will be working in partnership with Herts SENDIASS service and others on a number of SEND related topics.

All HPCI webinars are free and you can choose to either book a place on a live webinar or watch the recording at a time convenient to you.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is a presentation or a talk that happens online and can be joined via an app on your phone, tablet or pc from the comfort of your home or anywhere with access to the internet.  You can put questions in a chat box to the presenters live at the time and will receive a handout after the webinar of the slides and any extra information.  You will not be able to be seen by the presenter or others taking part in the webinar and HPCI parent network members will be given priority notice and able to sign up earlier.  Some webinars will be in small groups of 10 – 20 parents but they could be as large as 100 people.

Here is some information to help you with joining a webinar How to join an HPCI webinar
