After your account has been approved and you can successfully log in, you may need to update your contact details, job role, or establishment.
From 'edit profile' in My Profile and Bookings you can make a series of changes to your personal details, including:
- Your name
- Your contact telephone number
- Your email address
Updating your training level
Your training level determines the types of courses you can view and book onto; this is particularly important for Islington Safeguarding Training courses. For example, only users with training level two or above are able to see Group Two Safeguarding training. See the table at the bottom of this page for information about each training level and examples of staff at each level.
Managing Course Alerts
IslingtonCS can inform you of new courses when they become available. This is called 'course alerts' and you were asked to subscribe to these when you registered. Course alerts are sorted by category, event type, and target audience.
You manage these alerts from My Profile and Bookings and are set for each channel. You can also set your email preferences here for the Schools' Bulletin and Bright Start newsletter.
If you no longer wish to receive any emails, untick 'Activate event alerts by email'.
Updating your job role
Content on the schools and early years channels on IslingtonCS is restricted by your job role and the establishment you belong to. In some cases, you may need to update your job role - for example, from a 'prospective childminder' to a 'childminder' or from 'Teacher' to 'Teacher - Subject Coordinator'.
In 'edit profile' change your job role from the drop-down list. Please note that the list of job roles is limited in order to control access and these may not match your actual job role: please chose the role that most closely matches yours.
Updating your establishment
You may change your place of work, for example you may move to another school or early years setting. To ensure your account remains up-to-date and your training requests go to the line manager at the new establishment, you can change your establishment in edit profile.
Select the establishment from the appropriate service and once you have found your new place of work, click 'submit' at the bottom of the form. Your account will then go for approval to the new establishment line manager, and you won't be able to log back in until this has approved.
You will also need to contact us to remove your old establishment from your profile.
