What happens next?
If you are a suitable candidate for training, your content owner will submit a training request form on your behalf, which will go to the team which deals with Contensis training requests within IT Services.
The Contensis training requests team will give you access to training folders in Contensis. The team will then contact you via a Service Desk ticket, copying in your content owner, with a link to enrol on the Canvas training course. Contact will normally be made within two weeks of the request being submitted. You will be asked to inform your content owner when you have completed training, detailing which folder your training page is saved in.
Note: where there is no response on the Service Desk ticket within 3 months of the enrolment link being sent, the ticket may be closed.
Once your content owner has checked that you are proficient with the functional use of Contensis, they will respond to the Service Desk ticket that was originally raised, confirming that you can now have editor access.
The Contensis training request team will arrange for you to be given the editor access that was originally requested for you, and the Service Desk ticket will be closed.
Contensis is the name for the content management system that delivers our website and intranet.
Prospective editors should be comfortable with basic HTML and accessibility best practices.
