All Early Years, Safeguarding, Social Care and Family Support, and Schools training is booked and managed through the Training channel on IslingtonCS.
You can browse all available courses and request a place using your IslingtonCS account. When you submit a training request, it will usually need to be authorised by your establishment line manager and then reviewed by the course organiser.

Booking a course
When you have found a course you are interested in, click 'Request a place' to begin the approval process.
You will need to confirm your account details before submitting your request. If you haven't already completed our equalities monitoring form, you must complete this before you are able to request a place. You only need to complete this form once and can edit your answers from My Profile and Bookings.
Remember that all training must be approved by your establishment line manager before it it is reviewed by the course organiser. You will be informed by email once your request has been reviewed. Any other communication about the course will be sent by email, so please ensure your email address is up to date.
Line Managers are able to request training on behalf of their colleagues from the same form: click 'request a place' as normal and then click the link to request a place on behalf of a colleague.
If the course is closed, you will not be able to request a place, but you may be able to join the waiting list
By default, all courses will close for new bookings three working days before it is due to take place.
You may be able to join the waiting list by clicking 'Waiting List' in place of 'request a place'. You will then be added to the waiting list should a place become available.
Help! I can't see any courses
Some courses are restricted by training level. You will only see courses that match your training level set in your profile.
If the course you're looking for doesn't appear in search results, or the course calendar is empty you may not have a training level set or your level is lower than the course training level. You can review your training level from 'edit profile' in My Profile and Bookings. Follow the link below for help with selecting the right training level:
