Getting Started with Grid

Training for Grid beginners 

Join our team of assistive technology experts for a one day introductory training course in Grid.

You’ll also receive a free copy of Grid 3 which normally costs £480.

This hands on course will guide you through everything you need to get started with Grid.

We’ll take you through setup, show you how to customise ready made grid sets and create new resources.

The days equate to six hours of CPD, and attendees will receive a full copy of Grid 3 for their laptop. Did we mention that all this costs only £50 AND includes a free lunch?
