When you start filling in the registration form you will be asked to input the name of your institution. Once you start typing it in, a list of registered providers will appear. If you see your organization details in the list, it means that someone has already registered your institution. Please select the name from the list. When registration has been completed you will either receive an email informing you if you have been added as an editor for an existing provider or if you have registered a brand new provider.

If you click on the underlined number of programs you currently have, you will be redirected to your programs section. You can also access this section from the navigation bar by clicking on the ‘my programs’ tab.
You can enter any program title you want, however there are a couple of things we strongly recommend – please include the subject taught or a keyword relevant to that program. Remember that learners search by keywords. Try avoiding ambiguous words and aim for clarity.
The program represents the topic taught, and may or may not lead to a qualification or certificate at the end. It is independent of when, where or how it will be taught. The delivery methods represent when, where and how a program will be taught. One program can have many delivery methods.
We have embedded lots of validation rules in the application to help us collect high-quality, accurate information. If you get a warning message it means there’s a potential discrepancy. Please read the message and take the appropriate action.
No, you can enter as many programs as your institution runs. Please remember you don’t need to split the program if you offer different study modes (for example full-time and online options); you can enter it as one program with multiple deliveries and this program will appear in the relevant searches.
No, you can have as many deliveries attached to programs as necessary. You should enter different delivery methods for programs run at different venues, durations and study modes. Please remember that you can enter multiple start dates in one delivery.
Once you’re happy that you have finished updating, you’ll need to send your update live. Click ‘send my changes live’ – this will start the process. Once your changes are processed, your information will go live.
