The Business Transformation training team has been supporting the Finance and Procurement workstream to deliver key-user and end-user training. We’ve been offering hands-on workshops and drop-in sessions underpinned by a suite of online training materials.
Who are key users?
Key users are subject matter experts working on the Programme at a workstream level, or those closely involved in the shaping and delivery of the OneUniversity solution.
How do we support the workstreams?
Identify staff who need training
Develop the end-user training programme
Develop training manuals and videos
Organise end-user training
We’re all end users
All University staff and students will use OneUniversity so we’re all end users. The Change and Communications team will deliver end-user training and any other activity associated with helping to prepare our people for the transformation OneUniversity will bring.
How we’re going to manage change arising from OneUniversity
Our objectives are to equip people with the knowledge, skills and abilities to do their jobs from day one and support them as they transition to using new, shared processes and databases.
Dedicated training team
We now have a dedicated training officer, Chris Reid, and administrator, Emma McDade, who you’ll meet when you attend a session. You can contact the training team on 388081.
We’ve been getting asked what will happen when we go live, especially with technical support.
In the days immediately after go live we’ll have people on hand locally to help you with general queries – this might be your change champion, someone from IT or the BT Programme, or someone who’s taken part in Key User Training.
We’ll publish a list of who these people are on Box but they’ll be identified by their bright blue t-shirts with the OneUniversity logo!
In addition to this we’ve created a bank of Frequently Asked Questions within the IT portal which will be available soon. Just login, select the OneUniversity tile and search! We’ll update this daily so you can be guaranteed that the latest information and support will be there.
If you still can’t find the answer you should raise a ticket with the Service Desk where it will be assessed and allocated to the appropriate group/person to resolve and respond.
We know that it’ll be busy, particularly during the first week, so help us to help you by trying the FAQ’s before raising a ticket and, unless absolutely critical, avoid calling the Service Desk.
Raise a ticket with Help4You and they’ll get on it ASAP.
Thanks in advance for your support and understanding!
