Code: 19DMS/018A Using SIMS to manage SEN (on school data)

This course will enable delegates to fully utilise the functionality of SEN in SIMS to enable the effective and efficient use in relation to the SEND Code of Practice.

This course has been designed to allow delegates to access their own school SIMS database remotely from our training room, enabling the maximisation of the delegate’s time. During the training delegates will be able to start work putting in place customisation of SIMS to reflect the provisions in place for pupils at their own school.

Delegates will learn how to record SEN data efficiently in SIMS. Utilising the functionality of reviews, provisions and events, a comprehensive SEN record can be created for individual pupils. Data from SIMS can also be extracted into HCC standard forms and in reports for data analysis. Specialist reports and letters relating to the pupil can be linked to the pupils' record. Customisation of SIMS will support efficient working, enabling quick access to frequently used areas of SIMS and the display of data on the homepage.

Code: IND321 Induction for Governors

This full day course is for new governors for schools, academies and MAT's. This course is very important for all new governors so that they can be as effective as possible in helping the governing board in its role to secure school improvement. Delegates benefit from the opportunity to network with new governors from other schools and academies.

We recommend that all new governors attend the ‘Induction for governors’ course within the first 3 months of being appointed. In particular new governors derive maximum benefit if they book onto a course which takes place after they have attended at least one governing board meeting.

The three key roles of the governing board that will be covered during the course are:
1. vision and strategic
2. holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
3. Financial management and best value

Delegates will also receive an insight into how to get to know your school and taking part in effective meetings. The course will use a variety of teaching strategies including group discussion, case studies and tutor input.

Governors that buy into a HfL MAT packagewill be charged £100 for their attendance.
