Mash Webinars are up to 30 minutes long and focus on a specific area of Purple Mash, they again are not chargeable, but you must register, and a link will be sent a few days prior to the webinar that gives joining instructions.

We're now offering webinars! 

As well as our regional cluster sessions we also run regular webinars, so you can enjoy a CPD session no matter where you are in the world.
