Viewing from a mobile?
Click the 'hamburger' (three horizontal lines) in the top left corner of the screen to expand the menu.
Once you have selected your training channel, click the hamburger menu again to see the full list of training menu options, including 'My Profile and Bookings' and 'Search Events'.
My Profile and Bookings is where you can review all of your pending event requests and review your historical training record.
Select 'Events due to attend and booking status' to view details of all courses you've requested a place for. Events are marked as 'unauthorised' if your request is awaiting approval from your line manager and 'unconfirmed' if it is awaiting approval from the course organiser. Please contact your line manager or the course organiser if your place is unauthorised or unconfirmed. The event details will include the appropriate contact for the event. Also from here, you can download details of the training to your calendar. The list will include training that has been requested on your behalf by your line manager or by the course organiser. If you receive a notification stating 'no events found' you have not requested any training.
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.
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.
