T4 Site Manager training

T4 Site Manager training

Any staff who will need to maintain web content in a site managed within Site Manager must receive T4 training before they can have access to the system. Currently the Web Team is carrying out a thorough review of the training we provide for web publishing. This is with a view to developing a more effective and broader approach to both training and support for staff maintaining content on the University website, so our regular centrally delivered T4 training sessions are suspended for the time being. 

If you require T4 training you should contact the local Web Marketing Officer (WMO) for your College or Service, or a member of the central Web Team if there is no WMO covering your area - see the Web Team's 'Who we are' page for contact details. The Web Team will arrange any necessary training; you will not be able to book T4 training through Trent HR.
