A note on fees for remote bookings:
Remote bookings are the same price as in-person bookings so that SCL can cover the costs of the tech support that’s needed to offer a fully hybrid event. The costs related to providing a fully hybrid event are often higher than having delegates at the venue in person but, as an educational charity, we want to make sure that our events are as accessible as possible. We ensure that the high level of insight, training, and expertise offered at our events is available to both in-person and remote attendees. Additionally, the recording and any event materials are available for all attendees to access and re-watch after the event has taken place.

Concessionary rates: 
For academics, students, the unemployed and those experiencing financial hardship are available upon application. Please contact for more information.

Booking terms and conditions:
Payment is strictly 14 days from the date of issue of your invoice (unless otherwise stated). Invoices for event bookings must be paid within 14 days of receipt or before the event takes place – whichever date is soonest. The full booking terms and conditions for all SCL events are available here
