A quick Google search will show you hundreds of innovative tools to facilitate teaching and learning in digital spaces, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed.

How do I access the course?
Once you have booked your CPD, you will have access to your courses directly through your TTLN profile under the ‘My Courses’ tab.
Why do you charge for CPD?
The TTLN is founded on the belief that we should all value our time (yes, that means you!). Our trainers are highly experienced in delivering both tuition and training and we ensure that they are paid for both delivery and course development time. Unlike many networks, we ensure that the majority of fees go back to our trainers to enable them to continue providing high quality CPD to you.
Am I charged as a member?
If you have already signed up for the Gold tier of membership, then your booking is included within your membership fees. Our Silver members also receive a 50% discount on any CPD bookings as part of their membership. At present, this discount only applies where courses are paid in full – we are currently working on a solution to provide the Silver Membership discount for payment by instalments.
