In-house training offers

As the complexity of school information management changes and the functionality of GO 4 Schools is updated to reflect national school performance data, we want to ensure that you and your staff have access to the most relevant and timely data for your school, as well as the tools and skills to track and analyse this information effectively. We have therefore developed a series of in-house training sessions aimed at Data Managers and those who have the main responsibility for managing the day to day information and set up of GO 4 Schools. Our Data Manager training sessions are designed specifically to support and develop key staff in the management and implementation of GO 4 Schools:

A number of our training sessions are now ‘CPD certified by the CPD certification service – see the table below. Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. The CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD requirements. All attendees to these courses will receive a certificate of attendance for the course. We are aiming for more courses to become accredited overtime.
