You will need:

All Zoom links are sent to you automatically 30 minutes before the class starts but if you do not receive a link or are unable to find it please email [email protected]

Please try to join the class 5-10 minutes before so that the tutor can sort out any issues and direct you in how to optimise your Zoom settings for a better experience before they get the class started. We recommend that you use a device which has a microphone, speakers and camera for all TAPAC classes. You will be asked at the beginning of each class to turn on your microphone and camera to say hello. After this you may turn off your camera if you choose.
