How Do Learners Update Their Information?

Learners can update certain aspects of their information in Edulink One.

Learners must select the More icon to view the Update Information icon (depending on the number of features your school has enabled). Then, they click on the Update Information icon to change their current information.

The information changes the learner provides must be authorised by the Data Manager for Parents/Students, just like their parents.

Students can change basic information about themselves, like their preferred forename and preferred surname. Legal information, such as legal forenames, surnames and dates of birth cannot be changed.
