FAQs

Are there face to face version of the courses?

Spectacle has run 'Face to Face' courses since 2010 and you can find all relevant information on our Training web page. At the moment, due to COVID19, we have had to suspend all face to face courses.
We will run face to face courses again as soon as it is safe to do so but, given the close proximity required for hands-on training, we cannot predict when that might be. If you are interested in attending one of these courses and want to be on our waiting list you can get in touch at training@spectacle.co.uk or join our mailing list. You will be notified as soon as we will schedule new dates.

What platform is the online course on?

We will deliver our courses on Zoom. Before the course starts, you will receive joining instructions with a link to join our sessions. You will therefore need an internet connection, a computer with Zoom installed on and possibly a webcam and headphones with a microphone. If you don’t have Zoom, or you wonder whether your computer is suitable, please contact us at training@spectacle.co.uk and we will try to help if possible.

Do I need software or equipment to attend the online course?

We only require you to have equipment that allows you to join a Zoom meeting and a smartphone with video recording capacity. None of our exercises require you to have professional equipment, however if you have access to camcorders or other video equipment (DSLRs, microphones etc) you can use them for your exercise if you want. If your course includes Video Editing, although not necessary, it is advisable to have access to Adobe Premiere Pro. It is possible to have a 7-day free trial of the software that you could decide to use during your course.

Are the courses live? Will they be recorded?

All courses will be delivered live on Zoom. Before the course starts, you will receive instructions with the link to join the Zoom meetings. We will record our sessions and share a private link so participants can watch back the sessions they could not attend.

How many days does my course last?

The number of days it takes to complete each course depends on the course content (Modules) and the programme you choose. You can check days and weeks you will be attending your course by selecting your course on our calendar.

What is a module?

A module is a thematic portion of your course with a duration that can vary from 45 to 90 minutes. All modules will be fairly interactive, allowing time for questions. Webinars are modules that are more specialist in their content and more interactive in the way they are delivered. Check the list of our modules and their content on the course description page.

Can I handpick modules?

Our courses are designed as bundles of modules. It is also possible to attend only the modules you are more interested in and pay for them individually. Get in touch at training@spectacle.co.uk for specific advice if you want to craft a bespoke course.

What happens if I am not interested in one module. Can I swap with another one?

We will do our best to accommodate any specific interest and help you get the learning experience you seek. We will therefore allow, when possible, to swap a webinar or a specific module for another one that interests you. If you want to do so, please get in touch at training@spectacle.co.uk to discuss your options.

What is a webinar?

Webinars are more specialist modules. They are delivered in a more interactive way, addressing specific questions or themes. Webinars - or interactive screenings - are included in every course. Webinars are stand alone and can also be booked individually. Check the list of scheduled webinars and screenings.

What is a session?

We use the term session to indicate a time window when modules will be delivered. Aware of the fact that spending a long time in front of a monitor can be difficult, we limit the duration of our sessions to 2 hours, allowing breaks before the next session begins.

What happens if I cannot attend a session? 

All sessions will be recorded and a link to watch it back will remain available for the duration of your course. When possible, we can invite you to join a live session during another programme so that you can pick up the module you missed.
