Using Maps

The lel.help website is configured with Google maps which means that you can search for classes or providers local to you by simply inputting your address or postcode, where indicated. We display maps in 4 places, as detailed below:


If for any reason you're unsure how to find providers, classes or additional details regarding a specific course you can contact the provider directly by going to the class you're interested in and clicking the link called "Contact Class Provider". This will notify the provider of your interest and they will then send you an email directly.


Our Most Common Maps

Below you'll find details on how to use the most common maps on the lel.help website. To access the map pages you simply need to hover your mouse over the menu title 'Classes' (found at the top of each page) and then select one of the map views offered. As the process is automated (see Location Settings Guide), you usually just need to open the page and then accept the request for the lel.help website to view your location to see all available results based on the criteria entered within the radius field. If you want to have more control then read the simple guides below:



  • Classes » Search Classes (on map)

    Select this option and then enter your postcode or location or address, set the radius (in miles) and click 'Search Classes' to view the results of all classes within the radius you set.


    You can also click the locate me icon () which will pick up your location and display it in the map search box.

    Each time available classes are displayed you will see a brief overview of the class. The information displayed includes the class / course dates, the course provider basic contact details, a link to contact the course provider about that particular class, the distance from your location to the class and finally a link to view the full class details and a pin to highlight the class on the map itself (extremely useful where there are a lot of results being displayed). The results on this page display by default from the class start date.

    If you see a no results error then go back and try increasing the miles in the radius field (steps 2 & 6 above).


  • Classes » View All Classes » Class Details

    If you click the button (step 5 above) 'View Class Details' then you'll end up at the class details page. This page will display the full details of the class with map & directions and to contact the provider about the class, share the class with friends or print the class details for later use. The page is split into several sections - you can see what each section does by clicking the image below (to see the full size version) and by reading the notes underneath it:


    The information in each section, within the Class Details Page is detailed below. To get details of the right hand side search box, please visit the Help Guide - Using Search:


    1. Class Description
    This section allows you to contact the provider about the class, share the class with friends, print the details of the class and also gives a brief description of the class.


    2. Class Dates
    Here you'll find full details of the course enrolment dates, duration of course, class days and times and the typical start and end dates of the course or class.


    3. Class Information
    This shows you the class specifics such as the contact person, the cost, childcare provision, accessibility options, public transport links and a link to contact the provider about that particular course / class.


    4. Provider Details
    This is where you can learn all about the provider. Clicking their name takes you to the Provider Details Page and also lists their address, phone number, providers email address, website address and a link to search for other classes by that provider.


    5. Share Class Socially
    This allows you to share the class details to your favourite social media provider such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Just click the icon of your choice and share the class details.

    Drag, scroll, zoom in and get familiar with the location of the class! Clicking the pin produces a pop-up showing the class name, the class location and the providers website address. This map is specific to the class location which may not always be the same as the class providers main office.


    7. Travel Directions

    8. Search Facility (Right Side of Page)

    The information displayed on the class details page is designed to allow you to make an informed decision as to suitability prior to trying to enrol. If you have any queries always contact the provider directly.



  • Classes » Search Providers (on map)

    Searching for providers by map works similar to the Search Classes (on map) facility above. Start by adding your location (address or postcode) or the postcode of a provider / desired location and then set the radius (in miles) and click 'Search Providers' to view the results of all providers with active classes.


    You can also click the locate me icon () which will pick up your location and display it in the map search box.

    If a provider has an active class, that provider (and links to the active class) will display in a list underneath the map. The information displayed includes the providers basic contact details, a link to find other courses / classes by that provider and a link to view full details of that provider and the address (plus directions if required) of the course or class. The results on this page sort by default from the provider name in ascending (A-Z) order.

    If you want to view all providers regardless of whether they have any active classes then visit the Search all Providers page, which displays all registered providers - even those with no active courses or classes.

    If you see a no results error then go back and try increasing the miles in the radius field or view all providers instead.
