Setting up your user account

To gain access to the Education Sector Logon (ESL), you will need to complete the user invitation process.

Education Sector Logon invitations are emailed to users once a user has requested ESL access, information on how to request ESL access is available here

We recommend you use your personal email address for your ESL user account to ensure the privacy and security of your ESL user account. Do not use a shared email address for your ESL user account, as passwords can be reset via your email account. 

You can view and update your email address for your ESL user account at anytime via ESL Self Service

If you are not the person in the ESL email invitation do not accept the email invitation. Instead you should contact your school's ESL Delegated Authoriser or the Education Service Desk to request your own ESL invitation be emailed to you.
