Booking workshops on LearnUpon

Learn how to book onto an Organisational Development workshop for staff using LearnUpon.

Find the workshop 

You can find a workshop by logging in to LearnUpon and searching for the workshop title or key words in the search bar/catalogue. You can also explore the 'Sessions' area in the catalogue which lists all of the live workshops coming up.

Alternatively, you can find the workshop link from within the OD Events Calendar, log in to LearnUpon and then use the link to go straight to the workshop. 


Once you have found the workshop you are interested in attending, click ‘enrol’. This will then take you to the registration page where you can sign up for your place. You will now also be able to find the workshop in your enrolled courses area.


Once you are enrolled, you will be taken to the registration page. 

The registration page will show you if there is a session available. If there is a workshop available, click ‘register here’ and select the workshop which you would like to attend. The session’s details will appear again in a pop up and to book onto this workshop you will need to click ‘register’. 

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email from LearnUpon with the date, time and location/zoom link for the event. The email also includes a calendar invite which you can use to automatically add this to your calendar. 

Prior to the event, you will receive an email to remind you of your booking. 

Cancelling a place 

If you need to cancel your place, you can unenroll from the course which will automatically cancel your place. Alternatively, you can do cancel in the registration area where you booked on. Now the ‘register here’ button will say ‘cancel registration’. Once you have clicked this button, your place will be cancelled and you will receive an email to confirm this. 

Late cancellations that leave places empty have considerable cost implications for the University and take away the opportunity for other staff members who might wish to attend. If you have registered for an event and can no longer attend, please cancel through LearnUpon or contact to let us know as soon as possible so that we can make your place available for somebody else.  

In the event of ‘no-shows’ on the day, your unit/department may be charged a cancellation charge of £50, unless there are extenuating circumstances. Exceptions may be made for illness, evidenced by your line manager or doctor's note, or a family emergency. 

Waiting List 

If you enter the registration page and there are no sessions currently available for this workshop title, then you can be added to the waiting list. By keeping enrolled on the course, you will be contacted and asked if you would like to be added to the waiting list and notified when a new session is available. If you do not want to automatically be placed on the waiting list, you can un-enrol from the course. 

After attending 

Once you have attended a workshop, your staff development record will be updated to show this. You will also receive an email asking for your feedback on the workshop. The course will move to your ‘completed courses’ area.
