Code: BH/19/0949 Schools Payroll: Self Service Platform Training

This event is focussed on providing you with training in respect of the Schools Payroll Self Service Platform. Based on your feedback we have developed a self-service platform in Pier for schools to be able to directly communicate with the payroll, thus providing a streamlined approach to processes and a reduction in the cost of our service. 

We are currently finalising all features of the self-service platform, and as a member of our first phase group we would like to invite you to attend one of the outlined slots for an opportunity to get hands on training with the platform. 
 
We would like you to bring some actual pieces of work to process with you, maybe one of each type of process (new starter, additional position, change to contract, leaver). By the end of the session you will have had some hands on experience at using the system, as well as completing some live work.

We will be giving you all access to your own school’s data. If you require anyone else at the school to also have access, please let us know.
