First of all, when I signed in on the website, I received a conformation email about our sign up yet when I go on the website it still asks me if I wish to register and I cannot see our name on the page that details that showcases which groups are participating.

​If you look at the website page and at the top righthand corner, you'll see there is a "Log-on" word, just click on that with your original details you registered and you'll then get the options to add student names, address & link teachers' detail and then have access to the Resources pages.

Thank you for getting in touch and asking the questions.

1. For the zoom on Tuesday, does the whole group have to attend or just one person? Also, is there a specific time for each role to go into the zoom or does one person have to watch the whole thing until they talk about their role?

All the 4 Seminars are at 5_15pm till 6pm.

We highly recommend that you have a person representing your Company at each one.

Read the overview and this will help who needs to attend each one.

These will be LIVE conference calls with opportunity to ask questions.

How it all works 2020

The 2020/2021 copy of "How it all Works" is now in resources on the website so you should download it to learn everything about setting up your LEAP Company and having a really successful LEAP experience.

This year because of Covid-19 a lot of the seminars will be via Zoom or Microsoft Teams and even the Trade Fairs and other competitions will probably have to be "virtual". Since many companies are now working this way in the Real World we know that all the LEAP companies will cope very well.
