User guide

The Oxfordshire CPD Online user guide has instructions on registering, making bookings, viewing your learning record, and more.

Managing staff bookings

All staff members of schools and group settings should register individually. This will create a personalised learning record and allow us to take accurate registers.

Once staff are registered they will have the ability to book their own places on courses. It is the responsibility of managers/owners/heads to ensure they have permission to do so.

Request ‘line manager’ status

If as a manager/owner/head you would like to be able to authorise any bookings made by your staff please let us know. To do this:

You will then receive an email asking for authorisation each time a member of your staff requests a booking. Their place will not be confirmed until you authorise the booking.
