How To Link/Unlink a Learner to a Workplace

A Learner will not appear on a training plan or many workplace reports if you do not add the position to the Learner.

You can add:

  • One Workplace and one workplace position
  • One Workplace and multiple workplace positions
  • Multiple Workplaces

Careful when adding Multiple Client Positions as it can cause duplicates in reports. Make sure that ‘no longer active’ positions have an end date in the past.

Required Pre-Steps: Set Up your Workplaces and Positions

Note: StudentSupport and Trainer roles will not have access to link Learners to Workplaces

Workplace Position Types

Positions can be categorised by type which is necessary for displaying in Training Plans. Select one of the following Workplace Types:

  1. Employer
  2. Host Employer
  3. School based


A Learner Position can also be linked to a specific Course Enrolment to help more granular linking and reporting.

Regardless of Position Type, they can all be viewed in reports as positions if required.
