									Learning Point
LEARNER USER GUIDE

Welcome to Learning Point
You now have access to Learning Point – our learning management system. Learning Point helps
you keep track of your internal and external learning. You can also track your certifications, and
receive reminders when they are due to expire. This guide will help you to find your way around
the system.

        Finding your way around
        Learning Point is made up of the following sections; Home, Learning, Development,
        Community and Administration.

    •   The Home page
        Your home page is shown by default when you login to Learning Point. To return to your
        home page at any time, click the “Home” link in the left menu.

    •   News
        News articles are listed here and can be viewed by clicking the title of each item.

    •   Enrolled Learning
        This shows the status of your currently enrolled courses. From here you can click a course
        name to view more information about it and click the “Reference Point” icon    to access
        resources and the evaluation associated with that course.

    •   Enrolments Awaiting Approval
        This lists your enrolment requests currently awaiting approval by your training approver.

    •   Learning History
        This displays your personal learning history (both internal and external). By default it
        displays your learning history for the past 12 months. You can filter your learning history
        by selecting the options at the top of the Learning History page.

          o    Add / Request External Learning History and CPD
               Within your learning history page you can add records of learning that you’ve
               undertaken or are going to undertake outside of Learning Point. This might be a
               course or workshop that you and your team have attended. By clicking the “Add /
               Request External Learning History and CPD” button you can add this to your
               learning history. If you select a status of ‘Pending Approval’, an email will be sent to
               your training approver who can approve or deny the request.

          o    Print Learning History Report
               From the learning history page you can print a learning history report. This details all
               your internal learning history.

       use for training.

       up with your training approver. You will be emailed a reminder about your upcoming

       Withdrawing an Enrolment
       If you decide that you no longer want to continue with an enrolment you can cancel it. You
       can cancel your enrolment at two stages:

             Go to the ‘Pending Enrolments’ tab and click the ‘Withdraw’ button next to the course
             name.
