Data Managers Forum – Primary and Secondary School sessions
Did you know about our termly Data Managers Forums? These sessions are a great way of networking and being able to speak to other schools to see how they deal with their daily challenges.
At each session, delegates have the opportunity to discuss new ideas and ways of working which they have told us is both helpful and rewarding.
Hosted by Seymour Leeds and David Fisher from SBS, the sessions aim to showcase the latest features and products available to schools to support data management and analysis.
Our next Forum day is Wednesday 7th November. We have a varied and interesting agenda which includes presentations from Janette Hall (Capita), S.A.M (School Absence Management) and MyConcern. SBS staff will also be available to answer your questions during ‘Ask the Panel’.
Schools that have attended the previous forums are warmly invited to join us again as all content is new for Autumn. However, places are limited so schools are advised to book now.
You can see the full agenda/timings and book your place via the following link:
