FAQ

As a school, how do I use your site?

Schoolworkshops.com is the UK's leading workshop directory. You can search by category, area and age or by all three to identify the most suitable provider for your school.

Fill out the form with your requirements and we will do the rest!

You may be contacted by a member of our team as we aim to match your requirements with one of our workshop providers.

If you have chosen a specific provider and they are unable to fulfil your requirements, we will always try to identify an alternative provider.

Will my workshop be delivered by schoolworkshops.com?

No.

Schoolworkshops.com is a directory of workshop providers/third party suppliers advertising their services to schools or other organisations.

If you choose to book a workshop with a workshop provider/supplier as listed on schoolworkshops.com, the contract is between the school/organisation and the workshop provider. Schoolworkshops.com accepts no liability for the suitability of any workshop providers or third party suppliers advertising on this website.

As a school or organisation it is your responsibility to verify the credentials of a provider you may be interested in engaging. We suggest you obtain proof of ID, CRB’s for all staff, insurance, references, full cost breakdown and workshop plans.

Why should I advertise on schoolworkshops.com?

Schoolworkshops.com is the UK's leading workshop directory. In the last year we had over 30,000 unique visitors searching for workshops to take place in their school.

Our new website is on track to at least double this figure although we actually anticipate over 80,000 unique visitors in 2013.

We generate thousands of enquiries for workshop providers.

Why is it free to place an advert?

Unlike other websites, schoolworkshops.com doesn't charge to place your first advert. We firmly believe you should only pay when you receive a booking which is why we charge per enquiry received.

Your advert will be made live once it has been verified by a member of the schoolworkshops.com team. You must also provide a link from your website to schoolworkshops.com to be eligible for the free advert. See Add a Listing

Can I appear in more than one category?

Yes. You are allowed to appear in as many categories as you want. Each additional category is priced at £10 and all wording must differ from any other category you appear in. You cannot place two adverts in the same category.

Can I change my advert once it is posted?

You are able to change your advert as many times as you like within your user area. All changes need to be verified by a member of the schoolworkshops.com team and may not be live again for 48 hours.

How do I provide a backlink to your website?

Please follow the 'Add a Listing' guide

I would like to set up a new category. How do I do this?

If there is not a suitable category for you to appear in, please contact a member of the schoolworkshops.com team to discuss

My school would like to book various activities for an arts week. How do we do this?

Fill in an enquiry form (as found on most pages) to be contacted by a member of our team with your requirements and budget

How many enquiries am I likely to receive?

Much of this depends on the demand for your service and the quality of your advert. A well written advert offering African workshops leading up to Black History Month is likely to produce more enquiries than a more obscure poorly written advert. A member of the schoolworkshops.com team can always assist with your postings.

What details should I include in my advert?

Make sure you include as much information about your workshop as possible. You may also want to include your costs in this section. You are not allowed to include contact details or web links - these will be removed by our team. Schools will be able to contact you via the standard enquiry form.

There is a separate section for ages and locations so do not duplicate this information in your advert.

Are you VAT registered?

Yes, our VAT number is 934561417
