Need to register:
If your place of work or establishment has already been registered on the Early Years Channel you can register and select your place of work from the establishment drop down lists on the registration page.
If your place of work or establishment has not yet been registered, this needs to be done first by the service manager or delegated training lead selecting 'my establishment is not listed' on the registration page. This is so we can ensure that the relevant person is set-up first and assigned the correct authorisations and access to training requests, bookings, fees and charges. Requests from other people will be deleted 
Individual accounts are only for those people not working or volunteering in an organisation e.g. Childminders
