Code: DMS/20/375/A SIMS Personnel - effective use of reporting (on school data)

Accurate and effective reporting of staff data enables senior leaders, governors and bursars to gain access to data efficiently, in readiness for analysis and statutory returns.

On this half-day course, delegates will learn how to run, create and modify reports within the Personnel area directly on their own school’s SIMS data, enabling delegates to access these created reports when back in school. This will enable delegates to run and create reports for the senior leadership and finance team, allowing for effective analysis of their personnel data.

Code: GOV/20/292/A Induction for Governors (EVENT FULL)

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.
