Frequently Asked Questions

We hope that we have made things nice and simple, but you be unsure on something. We have collated the following frequently asked questions to help. If you cannot find the answer, please get in contact.

General Frequently Asked Questions

Will it be accessible in my school?

We have done a lot of research into which platforms are accessible in schools around the country. We get that schools need to be secure, and this can mean that lots of things get blocked which are out of our control.

Vimeo

We have chosen to use Vimeo’s streaming platform to deliver our conference live on the day and to supply the videos after the event. Vimeo is a trustworthy platform providing a wide range of content which is used as a valuable resource within schools and is generally not blocked.  Videos are embedded on this site and these are streamed from Vimeo.

If you can’t access Vimeo, then you need to contact your network team and ask if they can allow Vimeo in your school. You can test whether it is blocked by going to our channel and trying to play a video here.

Can I download the videos?

No. Videos need to be watched via this website. They will always be available, there is no time limit.

How many people can log on from my school at the same time?

Purchasing a conference or a course covers the school and the staff within the school. All we ask is that you don’t share your login details with people outside of your school. The only way we can deliver our conference at the price we do is by getting as may people as we can to come to it. Sharing login details jeopardises the future of the conferences and our training courses.

Instead, let people know what fantastic value our content is.

What if I want to find out more from a speaker?

We’ve all been there. Watch a great session, get lots of questions answered. You learn loads, but even so, you still have more questions. So what can you do?

Well, each speaker provides their contact details during the session (unless they expressly request that they don’t).  You always have the chance to follow up with the speaker directly after the event.

Our speakers are from a range of settings and businesses. It is worth remembering that a speaker may be from a school. They are there to share good practice (Rochford Review Recommendation 7). So they may be less able to respond as they already have full workloads. You may need to be a little patient for a response.

Virtual SEND COnference Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a webcam and microphone?

No! Delegates will not need the use of a webcam or microphone to attend the conference on the day.

If you want to come in your pyjamas, please feel free. If you are in school though, then you might want to wear what you normally wear.

What is for lunch?

The best we can do for your lunch is provide you with a picture of lunch.

VIrtual SEND Conference lunch

Obviously this won’t be enough sustenance on the day, so bring your lunch with you on the day of the Virtual SEND Conference. If you are not happy with your lunch, then you only have yourself to blame :p

Can I pause the stream on the day?

Yes you can! If you need to nip out quickly, you can press pause and pick up where you left off.

Don’t pause for too long or you might miss the start of next stream. So keep an eye on the clock.

I've only just found out about the Virtual SEND Conference and I've already missed events, what can I do?

Missed an event? Like the look of the schedule and the talks? You can still purchase access to the videos after the event has happened. It may not give you the live experience of being there virtually on the day but you do get access to the content to watch at you convenience.
