Booking your course

Choosing your course:

Check carefully that the session(s) you intend booking are appropriate for you. The outline of each session should enable you to do this, but if you are in any doubt, please check with CQSD. You could easily end up in an inappropriate session by booking on titles alone! Please also check with your manager/reviewer/Head of School or Department so that they are aware of your participation.

Booking your place

Most sessions have a limit on the number of places available. Places are allocated on a first come basis but for sessions with specific target audiences, priority is given to those who meet the criteria

You can book through Employee self-service or by emailing  (sessions relating to teaching and learning) or (sessions not relating to teaching and learning).

Confirmation of your place on the session will normally be sent within 48 hours of receipt of your booking. A reminder of the session and joining instructions such as directions, things to bring with you etc. will be sent out a week in advance. Please read these carefully to check for changes of venue or alterations to times.

Where are CQSD sessions held?

Venues for CQSD courses vary. Full details of the location of each session are given in the joining instructions which will be sent to you about a week before the session, and signs point the way on the day.


Please contact us as soon as you know that you are unable to attend. We can often offer your place to someone else. A late cancellation fee of £40 may be charged to Schools/Offices when less than two working days' notice is given of withdrawal. Cancellation by simply not turning up to a session will increase the fee to £50.

Cancellations can be made by emailing  (sessions relating to teaching and learning) or (sessions not relating to teaching and learning).
