Protecting people through learning and development

The administration of courses run through the ECS Learning Hub is currently transferring to a new system.

With effect from Wednesday 5 December, PKC employees can access training through MyView, where you will be able to apply for courses through the 'Training Request' tab which will be available on your MyView home screen.  Applications will then come directly to the ECS Learning Hub for action.

External applicants will be able to apply using the new application form which should be emailed to the ECS Learning Hub ecslearninghub@pkc.gov.uk.  Details of how to apply will also be available on the learning hub.
