During 2020 we launched a new online system, and all training resources were moved over to that new site in November 2020. The ‘training library’ that some Licensed Trainers may remember has now gone and everything can be found in one place on the Star Online.
All Licensed Trainers should have been sent a new log-in and password to enable them to access the site even if their organisation doesn’t use the Star Online for recording service user Stars.
There is also a second site, the ‘training site’ which all Licensed Trainers can access. The single function of the training site is to enable new practitioners and colleagues to understand how the system works. Trainers can access this site and, if their organisation uses the Star Online system for completing and recording service user Stars, then they will find it a really helpful option.
There are some new resources in the main site and a useful discrete space for Licensed Trainers in the help section. By accessing the training site, all Licensed Trainers can set up self-directed learning opportunities for their colleagues to practice using the system or trainers can just use it to deliver demonstrations of how it works.
So how do Licensed Trainers access other versions of the Star?
This has been a question that has been asked by many Licensed Trainers, so here is the answer…
Licensed Trainers are only able to access training resources for Stars that are linked to their account (these will have been set up by the account lead for each organisation). If a decision is made to use a new Star version within an organisation or service, then the request for additional Star versions to be added to the account will need to be made by the manager of the service to the account lead. This request will need to be made before the training takes place or trainers will not be able to access training resources or other resources such as User Guides and Star Charts.
