What happens to my mandatory training record if I go out of the office for a period for example maternity, external secondment career break or paternity leave?

Changing bookings

I can't attend this session. Can I rebook/cancel?

Cancel the booked session and then book yourself on the next session through easylearning.

In order to cancel a training session that you are already booked for, you will need to log onto easy learning system and under "my training" you will see the date you are currently booked for.

Click on the date and on the following screen you will see the option to cancel your booking.

If you are unable to cancel your training session it means that your request has not yet been approved by your line manager. In this case you will need to contact your manager to cancel it.

After the course

I have received a feedback form online and I completed on face-to-face, do I need to do both?

You don't have to complete two feedback forms.

As the easy learning system is still fairly new we ask participants to complete one of the two feedback forms (online or face-to-face).

If you would like to fill in both forms there is no problem with that.

The future plan is that all learners will complete feedback forms online onto the easy learning system.

How can I download my certificates?

In order to download your certificates, log into easy learning and go to "My Training Record" on the left hand side under "Reports".

You will be able to see your certificates by clicking on the red rosette next to your confirmed attendance.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to see any other certificates from previous courses because the system displays only the certificates completed since the beginning of the easy learning system.

Online certificates from Moodle courses

Please note for any course completed online on Moodle your record on easylearning will be updated and you will see under "My Training Record" on the left hand side under "Reports" the course will be marked as completed and pass.

If the course you have completed has a certificate (as not all have) this will be on the Moodle course page in the section called Certification & Training Record.

If you need a certificate as proof of your Moodle training for CPD, please download and save an electronic PDF copy of your Moodle Certificate as soon as you complete a course.

Please note: Once a Moodle course is closed you will be unable to access the course certificate. It is requested that you only print a copy of a Moodle Certificate if absolutely necessary.

Managers

How do I view my team?

My team

Your team member's information is in "My Team" section on the right of the screen.

This has three sections:

  • Edit
  • Certificates

Why am I receiving reminder emails for my staff who are already booked on training?

Please note that the emails that you receive are automatic from the easylearning system and will continue until they complete the training as they may cancel the course or not.

My team member's details (e.g. name) have changed. How do I update easylearning?

The records on easylearning are driven by ESR in order for the records on the LMS (easy learning system) to be updated, the payroll team needs to update the ESR system and this will update the LMS.

These reminder emails are sent for all skills for all staff.

The purpose of the reminders if to give your team and you the time to arrange their training so that they remain in date.

How does line manager authorisation work?

The system sends you an email to ask you to authorise training requests from your team members.

If a member of your team asks you to authorise training and you have not received any emails about it, please log on easylearning.

On the right side of the homepage of your easylearning account there is a section called "My Task List".

If you have any training requests from your team they will be located in that section.

Why do I need to authorise training?

To ensure full use of our training sessions all training courses must be authorised by the line manager via easylearning.

If the request has been on the system for more than 14 days without being authorised then the place will be cancelled to enable others to book on.

Please note that if you don't have access to a computer/on leave to accept or decline training requests for your team members, the system allows you to give proxy authorisation to another member of your team (e.g. personal assistant) who will be able to accept or decline these requests on your behalf.

How to share responsibilities

My Shared responsibilities allows you to give another user the ability to do things on your behalf, this is useful if you have someone either organises training for your team or will be covering in your absence.
