This year training sessions will concentrate on the new UniServity Life product which will be rolled out to schools during the autumn and spring terms. Schools will be given a number of options for when and how this process is carried out. Halton LA has produced this sheet which gives some guidance.
A list of technical requirements for the new platform can be found here. It would be useful if school passed this on to their technical support well before they undertake the training (to view this page, you will need to be logged into your school learning platform).
Provisional training dates will be available as early as possible in October.
Four pilot schools will be trained and adopt the new platform before the October half term, with hub managers and key staff from up to 25% of the remaining primaries being trained before Christmas. The majority of schools will have the opportunity to receive training in the spring term.
Once the roll-out has started, content on LA hubs will be duplicated on the new platform, with the intention of all content being available only on the new hub from March 2012.
