Apprenticeship Website Login Issue
by Ian Hall - Tuesday, 1 July 2014, 04:04 PM

Apprenticeship students have been unable to access the National Apprenticeship Website on college computers. You can search for vacancies but not login and this is due to a compatibility problem with the apprenticeship website and the new version of Internet Explorer. The apprenticeships service will not be rectifying this as they are working on a new website so to assist Andrew Barker and Stephen Harrison from our Technical Services team have produced a “fix” and a video that demonstrates how students can overcome the issue:

The video can be found below:

Thanks Andy & Steve!!
