Essential SIMS for Administrators

Dates, times and venues...


Staff with responsibility for using SIMS


  • Have you been in the school office for a number of years?
  • Are you a ‘new to SIMS’ user who has never had any formal training?
  • Do you feel that there must be a ‘quicker way’ of navigating the SIMS system?
  • Would you like an opportunity to further your skills?
  • Would you like to benefit from lots of tips and tricks that will make your everyday SIMS experience so much easier?

If you can answer yes to at least two of the above questions then this is the course for you!

Attendees will work on their ‘live’ school data and will look at everything SIMS related that will help you work more efficiently and proactively within the school office environment. All attendees will be given the opportunity to ask lots of questions pertinent to their own unique school settings; these can be sent prior to attendance on their workshop.

  • Shortcuts and Quick Links

  • Quick Search (in detail)
  • Personalisation – How to make your home page more effective to effectively meet your needs

  • School communication
