Online Transformation

Every Friday from 15th May onwards we intend to offer a weekly “Webinar” service. This will be a lunchtime (1 – 2pm) CPD presentation, over the internet, attracting a CPD point for each person viewing.
The benefits are obvious; the potential for highly cost effective training, from (we hope) a respected supplier, without the need for travel and undertaken from the comfort of your own offices. Over the course of the year there will be the usual JRS Legal Aid related topics, some category specific legal updates and sufficient management content to help meet Solicitors Code of Conduct Rule 5 management training requirements. Over the year we will also have a range of guest tutors.
We do not believe that this will replace our regular training courses however it will provide an additional and flexible way of gaining your requisite hours.
What is a Webinar?
In essence the “webinar” involves the live delivery of a powerpoint presentation but without video of the speaker. (I have been a little hurt by those who have suggested that this is a positive enhancement). A “phone-in” style question and answer session will follow. This means that it is an interactive course and not distance learning, therefore no in-house preparation is required an neither are there multiple choice tests on conclusion.
All you need is an internet connected PC and a speaker phone. On the day you log on at our hosts site, with an e-mail supplied code and ring a similarly supplied phone number (phone charges are included in the course fee). Course notes are supplied by e-mail also. The more you have sitting around your desk the cheaper the CPD point becomes.
The first topic will be

“A Practitioners Guide to CDS Best Value Tendering”
