What is the Course Directory?

The Course Directory provides information on courses offered by training providers who are contracted with the Department for Education and is presented to learners by the National Careers Service. 

Prospective learners can search through the directory to find more information about the courses available to them.

Creating and submitting a course for the Course Directory

If you are contracted through the DfE, you must create a course through the Course Directory Provider Portal to be included in the Course Directory. 

How to publish a course

To create an account to publish to the course directory:

  • 1. Create a DfE Sign-in account.
  • 2. Request access to your organisation using your DfE Sign-in account.
  • 3. Once the DfE team approves your request, email to request access.
  • 4. We will then review your request and give you access to the service if you meet the requirements.

Your contact details

We’ll show the contact details for your organisation next to information about the T Levels or courses that you ask us to publish. We use the contact details that are listed on the UK Register of Learning Providers (UKRLP).

Please keep your contact details up to date with UKRLP. If UKRLP do not have your contact details, your courses might not display on the website. You can add or change your primary contact details directly with the UK Register of Learning Providers (UKRLP).
