    Hi Teach Starter,

    I have tried to download this PowerPoint but cant open it because PowerPoint has found an error with its content. For some reason it is unable to read the PowerPoint and therefore it cant be opened.
    Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but I’ve never had it before with any other Teach Stater presentations.

      Hi Ellie,

      Sometimes this error happens with older versions of PowerPoint or some school versions which prevent PowerPoint templates being opened.

      Can I get you to try something for me? Please right click the file and select ‘Open’ from the menu. This should allow you to access the file without the error message.

      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
