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.
Delegates are invited to bring their own (name-protected) data along if they wish. There will be a small element of statistics involved in the course, as well as some spreadsheet use. Delegates are encouraged to bring along laptops, and have working access to Google Drive.
