Who can access this tab?
The Staff 'Training' tab is where information relating to 'Training Records' and 'Qualifications' for a Staff Member can be entered.
This tab is only accessible to those with the 'Human Resources' or 'Team Leader' privilege for the Site/Services this individual works in, or the global 'Human Resources For ALL Staff' or 'Team Leader for ALL Services' privilege.
Assuming Staff have access to a Staff Account but do not have any of these privileges, they will see the following notification displayed after selecting the 'Training' tab:
' Sorry, you do not have sufficient privileges to view or edit availability or training information for this staff member. This is because you need to be an HR manager or team leader for a service that this staff member works in'
