Course information

Start Times

Start times may vary, please see the course description for actual start time. Participants should arrive at the venue 15 minutes before the course start time to be sat and ready to start at the stated time.


Late arrival / early departure

We understand that unavoidable circumstances may mean that a participant is late for a course or needs to leave early. If you know in advance that this may be an issue for you please contact a member of the LSCB Training Section (0113 3950297) to discuss. The LSCB Training Section and the trainers have the right to refuse a place to a participant if they will miss a significant section of the session. If a participant is held up on the way to a course it would be appreciated if they could contact the LSCB Training Section to inform them, who will in turn inform the trainers.


Signing In

Participants are required to sign the sheet provided at the start of a course. Failure to do so may result in a participant not being given a certificate and being charged for non-attendance. If a participants name does not appear on the sheet the trainer has the right to request that the person does not stay for the course, or that the participant shows proof of their place (confirmation email).



All participants on LSCB courses will receive a Certificate of Attendance, however the trainer reserves the right not to give certificates to people who do not attend for a full day, or are deemed not to have fully participated in the session.



Participants will be given an opportunity to evaluate a course at the end of a session. This information will be used to inform future training, including updating materials, changing course content and venue choice. In addition, participants will be sent a Post Evaluation form three months after the course to enable you and us to gauge learning impact. This should be completed with your line manager within supervision.



To minimise avoidable non attendance the LSCB has a charging policy. If a participant fails to attend for circumstances which were avoidable, their Line Manager will be contacted and a charge of £50 levied. All charges recuperated will be directed back into the training budget.


Refreshments / Lunch

In order to allow the LSCB to provide free places on courses we do not provide lunch for participants. Lunch is available to order at Shine from their cafe, and trainers will inform participants of local facilities at the start of a day. Participants are also welcome to bring their own lunch. The LSCB will provide tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the day on all courses.


Additional Learning Requirements

Should you have any additional requirements which would make your learning and participation on a course better please inform us of this on your application. We will make every effort to meet these needs, and if this is not possible we will contact you to discuss.


Course materials

All participants will be sent the course materials (pre-reading and participant pack) by email with their confirmation (if applicable to their course). It is the responsibility of participants to print the participant pack and bring it with them to the course – trainers will not bring spare copies. Please ensure you take time to complete the pre-reading prior to the event to that ensure you are able to fully participate.
