Common Teacher Questions

Do I select my own modules?

Have a conversation with your line manager about this. They might want you to work through the content in a specific order or they may be happy to accommodate what you would like to work on. You will not be able to view any content though unless your line manager assigns it to you first.

Will I have to start again every time I log on?

The programme is intuitive and remembers where you are up to so don’t worry about saving progress, this is done automatically for you.

What do I do with any material I have printed from the read or do sections?

You are not able to store any of your work on the system (apart from notes during the review session with your line manager). Therefore, we recommend keeping a folder with any work you have completed or reading material you have printed out.

What are packages?

The packages are the content within the module. Each module contains either 3, 4 or 5 packages. Each package contains 1 watch, 1 read and 1 do. The review comes at the end of each module instead of each package.

What should I do if I don’t understand something?

Your first line of call should always be your line manager as they are there to support you throughout the course. However, if we can offer any help then please be in touch with

The line manager decides which modules they want their staff to do and can even assign specific modules, monitor progress and there are pre written discussion points for line management sessions and a place to record notes during the review sessions.
