        Thank you for getting back to me, I have been keeping an eye on it but with an exception of one, most of them seem to be held not so close by. Warm regards.

    Hello
    I didn't manage to make this session. Will it be posted online in transcript fashion so I can print it off? Thanks

      Thank you for your comments Brendon. No we don't have a transcript of the session. Each session is slightly different as it is interactive though the basics of the session can all be found on CS Learning if you search applying for a job.
