You select the plan depending on the number of staff in your school e.g Teachers, SNAs, TAs etc.

For example: If your school has over 10 staff who work with children, select the Countryside Plan, or if your school has over 30 staff working with children, select the City Plan.

Once you sign up you will be brought to a page where you can download an excel file. This excel file will include fields where you can add in the details of those who are to be registered.

When you sign up for one of the school CPD plans, it gives you access to that School Years content and your next billing date will be the start of the new school year.

For example: If you are based in Ireland and your school signs up for a CPD Plan in January 2024, you are getting access to the recordings of the previous webinars since September, plus all other webinars which will be coming up until May 2024. Your next billing will be in September 2024 and this is for the new CPD topics for that school year.

If you renew your CPD Plan, you always keep your schools access to the previous years CPD. You only lose access if you cancel your subscription.

Yes of course. You can cancel your subscription at any time, just email hello@myotandme.com or access your account via the button in the payment receipt you received after initial purchase.

If you cancel your subscription you will lose access to that school years CPD after 12 months. (You won't receive access to the new school years CPD unless you renew)

Yes, you will be notified at least 3 days before the subscription renews. All subscriptions renew at the start of the new school year

Yes, recordings are made available for as long as you have an account with My OT & Me. If you cancel your school's subscription before your 12 months are up, your staff will still have access until the renewal date.
We can issue certificates for those who attend live or watch the recording. To get the certificate for one of the CPD sessions, staff can login into their account where they will need to watch the recording if they didn't attend live, and then complete a short quiz.

If you school has paid for a CPD Plan, the first thing to ensure is that you have sent us the staff registration file. If you have not done so and are unsure of how to access it please email hello@myotandme.com including your school's name.

If you have sent us the registration file, search your email inbox for account activation emails from My OT & Me. If no emails are found, please email hello@myotandme.com including your school's name and we will look into it.

If the link in your account activation email has expired, please CLICK HERE.

You will have access for 12 months
There is about 20 hours of content over the 6 modules. Once 80% is complete we can issue your certificate
Once you have completed the course, contact us at hello@myotandme.com and we will verify completion and issue your cert. Once 80% is complete we can issue it.

I would recommend choosing one of the School CPD plans which you can see on the website. 

If you would prefer just to sign up for a specific webinar, you will need to register each teacher individually as there is no way to add multiple registrations at the same time.

If you are on the School CPD plan, your certificate will be available through your account where the recordings are available.

If you are not part of a School CPD plan, and you haven't received your certificate within 5 working days, please contact us at hello@myotandme.com with the name of the webinar you attended.

Yes, recordings are made available from Friday to Sunday following the live webinar. If you are a school, recording are available for the year when you sign up to the school CPD plan.
