SIMS Options Training Courses

SIMS Options

We’re delivering SIMS Options Training Courses in February

We offer two different courses for SIMS Options – SIMS Options Standard (Options 5) and SIMS Options Online.

SIMS Options Standard (Options 5) includes all the familiar features of Options 5 including entry and analysis of student choices, creating classes, placing into blocks and manual and automatic allocation.

The SIMS Options Online course will introduce delegates to the new version designed especially for online use, which means that schools wont need to create and sort manual lists or process individual paper submissions.

Delivered by David Fisher, by the end of these courses you will have learnt:

  • Entry and analysis of student choices
  • Creating block structures and classes
  • Allocating the options
  • Editing the structure
  • Producing reports

Our next course date for SIMS Options Standard (Options 5) is Wednesday 12th February 2020 10am – 4pm at Swiss Cottage School in Camden, London.

Our next course date for SIMS Options Online is Thursday 13th February 2020 10am – 4pm at Swiss Cottage School in Camden, London.
