Overview...

Following on from the latest Admin Forums, the ICT Service is pleased to be able to offer you this new workshop, which has been created due to an unexpected demand.

  • Have you been in the school office for a number of years?
  • Do you feel that you have ‘missed out’ on SIMS development?
  • Would you like to further your skills?
  • Would you like to benefit from lots of tips and tricks that will make your everyday office work so much easier?

If you can answer yes to at least 2 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.
