Q: I want to take part in a Skills Training session. What do I need to do?

A: You can view our range of courses on our homepage or on our course calendar. The top 10 upcoming sessions are displayed automatically but if you are looking to find a session happening later in the year you can filter the sessions displayed by clicking on the relevant skills category or, alternatively, change the number of sessions displayed from 10 to a higher amount. If sign up is open for the session you'd like to attend, there will be a button displayed which you can click to 'Sign up'. If sign up is not yet open for the session you'd like to attend, there will instead be a 'Tell me when signup opens' button that you can click to be emailed when sign up is open.

Q: How will I know where to go?

A: Once you have signed up to attend a session you will receive an automated email with the name, time, date and venue for the session. We also send out automated emails one week before the session and again 48 hours before.

Q: How can I see which courses I am signed up to?

A: You can view the sessions you are signed up to from our homepage by clicking on the 'My sessions' tab.

Q: What if I sign up for a session but cannot make it?

A: You can cancel sessions you are signed up to from our homepage by clicking on the 'My sessions' tab. Cancelling your sign up will mean you are no longer listed on the session sign up list and you will no longer recieve emails about the session. Please ensure that you cancel your attendance at least 48 hours in advance.

Q: How can I find out about becoming a student trainer?

A: We have a dedicated page about the Student Trainer Programme.
