Once your learners have completed their initial assessment, you will be able to access their results via the Assessments tab in CENTURY. After you have confirmed the level that they will be working towards, classes will need to be uploaded to the platform via CSV, Create a Class (in-platform) or the databridge.
FE Class Setup
Classes can be set up in a number of different ways that work for your college.
Mass course classes
Mass course classes
Mass course classes are particularly useful during enrolment, after learners have sat their IA and before teaching classes are finalised. A course is assigned and all students completing that level course will be placed into the mass class so that their pathway isn’t blank (e.g. ‘Maths Functional Skills Level 1’). Teachers do not have to be assigned to these classes.
Post enrolment, learners need to be added to their timetabled English and/or maths teaching classes. Teaching classes are often mixed ability, so the MIS Manager will need to split these groups so that only the relevant level of Functional Skills or GCSE course is assigned. Naming conventions are important - often a combination of code, tutor name, time of lesson, campus and level.
Vocational classes are comprised of all learners studying a specific vocation (e.g. animal management or motor mechanics). The majority of the time, the learners will be studying at different levels for English and maths, so no Functional Skills or GCSE course is assigned.
If any of the above is unclear, please contact your Account Manager who will be able to assist you with class setup.
Once classes have been created on the platform, teachers will need to assign the relevant courses. This can be done via Class Admin by selecting the relevant class and assigning the course required (see below).
Mass course assigning
Your Account Manager is also able to mass-assign courses on your behalf. In order to do this, it is important that classes are clearly labelled to highlight the level of course that you wish to be assigned (e.g. Monday 9am - Functional Skills Level 1 - Maths). Please contact your Account Manager directly if you would like courses to be mass-assigned.
