FAQs:

Q: Do the first four sessions need to have been delivered after attending the Level 2 Core Module day?
A: No. But ideally you will have been actively delivering sessions before you attend the L2 in order to get the most from the day. Your first 4 planned sessions for your portfolio can be delivered before or after the L2 Core course.
