First steps

New to Kerboodle?

Follow the first steps including inviting an administrator to start creating students on Kerboodle.


Creating teaching groups

It is the administrator’s role to create and manage year groups and to put students into their correct year groups. Once in year groups as a teacher you can create your teaching groups/classes.

Hide course access

We would recommend hiding the Smart Curriculum course icon to any teaching groups who won’t require access. If you require hiding the course for a particular teacher, speak to your administrator and share the following guidance.
