Self Service: Videos and Documentation

We love talking about SmartyGrants and we’re happy to deliver as much training as you need.

All of the material we cover in our training sessions is covered off in our documentation and videos, so it might be worth you checking whether you actually need us to deliver specific training for your organisation or whether the self service approach is enough.

If you can’t find what you need through SmartyGrants Documentation or our Training Videos, let us know. We can either help you find where the information you need is located, or help you directly to solve your issue.

We understand that the needs of every organisation is different, and that different people learn in different ways. We are always happy to work around your needs.

Computer Lab Sessions

SmartyStarter and SmartyPlus

Our computer lab sessions are designed to give SmartyGrants users affordable and practical training and provide a great opportunity to join SmartyGrants users from different organisations to walk through the system. Classes are run regularly and attendees each have access to a computer in the lab to work on and follow along the session/s with the opportunity to practice skills.
