Nova T6 Surgery – Stuck with this year’s timetable?

Nova T6 Surgery

Let SBS help you with your timetabling problems.

We have experienced Nova T6 timetablers to partner with you and guide you through issues encountered along the way.

From time to time a new or experienced school timetabler may need to discuss situations encountered during their scheduling with someone who has been there and understands the issues and frustrations timetabling may offer. These issues can range from a change to a two week timetable, or “It’s a year since I did this and I’ve forgotten how to start”, to screens like these.

You can book 60 minute blocks of time where we can arrange to talk you though these challenges and try to solve or suggest approaches to finding solutions. Some problems appear impossible in the way they present themselves and the ability to share and talk these though often leads to parameters being changed and solutions found.

Each 60 minute block will cost £50 (or you can use your existing SLA allowance) for one of our experienced timetablers to assist you with whatever challenge you have come up against.

Obviously everyone has issues unique to their establishment and this is why we are offering this form of support especially as with the current isolation, problems can take on enormous proportions.
