Common Questions

Please take a look at the FAQs below; and If you still need help, you can speak to our team on Live Chat. Monday to Friday (9am - 6pm).
What device should I use?
Use a desktop computer if you’re able to and use the Chrome browser.
What if I can’t attend a live talk?
Don’t worry if you can’t attend a webinar a recording will be added for you to watch on-demand.
What times are the webinars and where can I watch them?
You can find all the webinars within the live webinar section of your virtual work experience programme. You can resume your virtual work experience programme by going to our work experience platform and signing in below.

The webinars typically last for about 40 minutes to an hour, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers via a Q&A function.
Do I need to watch the webinar to do the activities?
We recommend that you watch the webinars live where possible, as the industry experts and professionals will be able to give you insights that you may wish to use for the activity. However, for most programmes, you should be able to complete the activities and quizzes with the information that has been provided too.
What software do you use for the live talks?
We use a tool called BigMarker & YouTube Live for our live talks that won’t require you to download anything.
What if I can’t upload my work?
Please try saving your work as a PDF before uploading it.
