Essential C21st Teaching Skills


Making the most of your school statistics and data
About this course

In this course, delegates will use their own and sample data to ensure that they are able to effectively draw out information from raw figures, set appropriate and effective targets, use simple analysis tools to identify trends and make collecting and tracking data a simple procedure for all staff.

The course will cover dealing with data from all phases and stages, and is ideal for Senior Leaders, and those who have a responsibility for collecting and analysing data, such as Curriculum Leaders and Governors.
