Some points to consider:

  • Ensure that you have the number of computers required, fast and reliable internet connection and also an up to date version of Office.
  • Has your school a number of IWB for practical hands-on sessions.
  • Catering Facilities (lunch). Can you accommodate in-house or will you have to go out.
