How to browse

The ‘Browse’ facility provides a way of looking for resources through a broad category and sub-category structure and is found in the left hand menu panel. This can help you look for resources within a category such as “teaching materials” or “quality standards and procedures”. Using the browse facility is particularly helpful if you are looking for a range of resources on a topic, rather than searching for a named resource.
