This is an excellent initiative and businesses especially in the Financial sector would do well to try and understand chronic medical conditions such as Epilepsy. Having worked a large portion of my life in The City of London I am aware that these subjects are not spoken about and just not discussed. Best wishes. 👍

Good afternoon,

I am interested in the course but I would like just like to know on many times a month? and how long this course lasts for throughout the year? because it does not share this information. Thank you.

Hi JohnCarl,

Thanks for your comment.

Our epilepsy awareness training is delivered at your organisation on a mutually convenient date/time. The course is 2 hours long and is for a maximum of 20 people. If you are interested in training just for yourself as an individual then our online courses may be more suitable https://learn.epilepsy.org.uk/

If you have any more questions about the awareness training, please feel free to email our local services officers on lso@epilepsy.org.uk.

All the best,

Josh - Epilepsy Action

So £240 for 2 hours? is that correct?

Submitted by JohnCarl

Hi JohnCarl,

That is correct. The cost can be covered by a fundraising pledge if that's preferable.

Many thanks,
