My Profile and Bookings is where you can review all of your pending event requests and review your historical training record.

If any of the courses you attended included a certificate, you can download these from Events Attended after the register has been marked and you have completed any necessary evaluation forms.

If you need to cancel a booking, you must do this from here.

You can also update your contact details, your training level and manage your course alerts. Line Managers will also find line manager tools here.

My Course isn't showing

If the course you are looking for doesn't appear, please check that it is still open to bookings or hasn't been cancelled.

By default, all courses will close for new bookings three working days before it is due to take place.

You should also check your training level. Some courses are restricted to certain staff members depending on their level of contact with children. You can review your training level from 'edit profile' in My Profile and Bookings.

I can't see any courses

Some courses are restricted by training level.

This is so only the right persons book onto certain courses. You can review your training level from 'edit profile' in My Profile and Bookings.

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.

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.

Information for line managers


Cancelling a course

If you are unable to attend a course, you must cancel the booking online at least 24 hours before the course takes place.

You do this from 'cancel a booking' in My Profile and Bookings. It is not possible to cancel a course by email.

If you do not cancel the course online, you may be charged a cancellation fee. 

It is your responsibility to follow up any courses you have booked to avoid disappointment or incurring charges.

If we need to cancel or change courses we will contact you by email, or if time does not allow this, by phone. If we have to cancel a course you will be placed on the waiting list for the next course.
