REQUESTED LEARNING (LEARNER VIEW)
Requested Learning is an optional feature that is enabled when an organisation allows their learners to
request their own training material rather than always allocating courses to them.
WHAT THE LEARNERS SEES - When Requested Learning is enabled in an LMS, the Requested
Learning tab will be accessible from the learner dashboard. When the learner selects the Requested
Learning tab, they will see the options available:
Course Request – this option enables the learner to request a course from the directory of courses
which have already been set up by their administrator(s).
New Learning Activity Request – this option enables the learner to submit a request to undertake or
attend a course which is not already set up in their organisation.
Record Historical Learning – this option enables users to register learning that they have undertaken
in the past. (This is an optional feature - so this function will only be available if the organisation has
specified that it should be switched on).

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A REQUEST HAS BEEN MADE
What happens after a learner has submitted a request will depend on what their administrator(s) have
specified regarding levels of authorisation. In some instances no manager/administrator approval may be
necessary and a course will automatically appear on the learner’s record as soon as they have made the
request.
In other instances the learner’s manager (and possibly also a senior administrator) will need to approve the
course prior to it being made available to the learner. For example, if there are significant costs involved,
the organisation will need to authorise this prior to the learner receiving permission to undertake the
course.
However, whatever the level of approval, the learner is kept advised of the current state of any request by
notices on their training record and messages/emails.
