Frequently Asked Questions
Ofsted no longer grade lessons, why do you still do so?
I am looking for a specific lesson for my training day, can you help?
Yes of course. We have many schools contacting us with specific requirements. Some schools also use our lessons as part of their interview process. We also have a list of lessons with topic, duration and grade (not all) if that helps. So please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
What's the difference between an academic licence and a commercial licence?
An academic licence allows you to use our resources within your organisation for non commercial purposes, for example for staff training or interview processes.
A commercial licence allows you to use our resources for commercial purposes, where you are charging to deliver training, for example a consultant delivering a course, or as PGCE provider.
Can I download the videos?
Can I download the documents and send them to my colleagues?
I am thinking of signing up but I would like to see a sample. Would this be possible?
All videos have a 3-5 minute preview on the site which includes the teacher’s introduction and a snippet of the lesson.

Do you offer a free trial?
Yes. We offer a 7-day free trial. When you subscribe, below setting your password, enter the following coupon 7DayTrial
Can you invoice my school?
Yes. When you subscribe, you will have the option to request an invoice.
If I request an invoice, how long do I have to wait before I can use the website?
There is no waiting time, you can use the website straight away.
Do you need a purchase order number?
No, however some schools require you to request a purchase order whenever you buy goods or services. You would need to check with your organisation.
I only want to access one lesson online for a training course next week. What other options are there?
The majority of our lessons are available to buy on CD/DVD on https://classroomobservation.co.uk/shop/
You can also rent our lessons using Vimeo on Demand on a monthly basis. Your contract will be with Vimeo and not ourselves so we won’t provide you with an invoice and we wouldn’t be able to cancel on your behalf.
None of the feedback forms and lesson plans can be found on Vimeo, but you can drop us an email and we would gladly send them to you.
