+Organiser Overview - Trainer


To get to the Organiser, Select +Organiser from the Extensions menu in the toolbar -




+Organiser is used primarily for Trainers to:

  • Make calendar events and send invites
  • Record feedback on events or other notes in the comments area
  • Track Training Hours per unit for students



There are 3 options in the Trainer Dashboard:


  • Navigate to each area by clicking on the icons.
  • To return to the dashboard from any page, click on the +Organiser icon at the top of the page
  • You can also use the +Organiser menu in the toolbar



Calendar ;

  • Use the Calendar to plan your week.
  • Event invites are sent using the email address recorded in Ready Skills.
  • If you wish to notify a person who does not have a Ready Skills account, add them to your Contact lists then they will be selectable.
  • Hints on tagging an event: If the employer is selected first, only students with that employer are displayed. Then once the student is selected only supervisors linked to that student are displayed.
  • Consider creating separate (can be overlapping) events for each individual student – this makes it easier to give feedback with a separate ‘Pending’ post per student already created.
  • For events that do not require feedback/hours tracked, you can untick ‘Requires Feedback’ and no ‘Pending’ post will be created.


Comments ;

  • Comments can be used for giving feedback on events, and in particular to log training hours involved.
  • Other uses might be reminders or to do items; observations of behaviour etc.
  • You can also log a comment then save and create an event. This is great for making follow up events and keeping them linked in your Comment History.


  • Create your own contact list with people who are not Ready Skills users.
  • Contacts can be linked to comments or events.
