Scoilnet Account

If you registered to use any of the Scoilnet applications or services, eg. Web Hosting, Blogs, a Scoilnet Account will have been created for you and you will have been issued with a username and password. Your username comprises your first initial, your surname and then four digits. This username uniquely identifies each Scoilnet user. If there are 4 Mary Murphys registered, there will be no conflict as each will have a different set of numbers following the 'mmurphy' part of their username.

Note: Usernames cannot be changed.

To setup a Scoilnet Account you will need your Teaching Council Number(TCN) which you can look up on the Teaching Council Register if you do not have it to hand.

Account Settings allows you to change your password, reset a lost password and update your email address as well as change settings associated with specific Scoilnet Services e.g. Web Hosting.

The My Account Tab will be selected which will show you the details held for your account and allow you to make changes.
