From 'edit profile' in My Profile and Bookings you can make a series of changes to your personal details, including:

  • Your name

Please remember that you select your job title from a drop-down list and this is set by channel. Your selected job title may not be available in all channels.

Managing Course Alerts

IslingtonCS can inform you of new courses when they become available.

These are 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 and are set by each channel. For example, if you would like to receive alerts for when new courses are added to the Schools training channel and the Early Years training channel, you will need to update your preferences in both channels.

You also manage your newsletter preferences for the Schools' Bulletin and Bright Start newsletter in Course Alerts.

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.

Updating your training level

Your training level determines the types of courses you can view and book onto.

Update your training level from 'edit profile' in My Profile and Bookings.
