We hope you can access the training with no technical difficulties. Your experience with Microsoft Teams will differ depending on the device you are using.

If you have Windows 10, you shouldn’t have any difficulties.

With Windows 7, you should use Teams on the web using the Chrome web browser on your laptop. Go to and log in with your usual council login details.

If you're using Citrix on a personal device, you should use the web version of Teams outside of Citrix, as using Teams directly within Citrix will give you limited access.

This information is helpful if you are new to using Teams.
