You can add the Staff who will be teaching the course, by clicking the Add button. You can add new employees in the dialogue box that appears. However, as we are scheduling a recurring course you will probably want to add these for each individual course later.

If you have not chosen to create Defaults, you can assign modules, times and locations on each of these tabs.
