Hi Rowan,

Make sure you are an admin - if noone else set up the installation then you
will be - only typo3 admins can create/edit templates.

Everything in typo3 is a record. To create a record on any page, look for
the icon that looks like a sheet with a green plus on it. This will open
the 'add record' menu. You will see template listed there. See the right
pane on this image
in the right pane, youll see the 'new record' image beside the magnifying
glass. Look for that. It should be at the top of the right pane in the
Typo3 Backend. Make sure you are on the page you want to add the template.
