FAQs

What's the refund policy?

Refunds will be given if the refund request is made via Eventbrite one week (7 days) or more prior to the event's start (i.e. before 8:30am on Friday 16th March). Refunds are not possible after this time, as per our Eventbrite Refund Policy for this event. 

 

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes. We don't want schools to miss out on this valuable workshop due to unforeseen circumstances. We are quite happy for a replacement staff member from the school/institution to attend on the day (e.g. if the registered staff member is away sick).

 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We will create a sign-in sheet; just sign yourself in when you arrive.
