Want to work in a school?
You need SIMS knowledge.

SBS can provide a starting point for SIMS

Used by 82% of schools in the UK, SIMS is the most widely used management information system.

For many looking to find a job in a school, a lack of SIMS knowledge and experience is often a stumbling block. This is where SBS can help with SIMS Training for Non-School Delegates.
