Where Do I Start?

If you are new to SIMS Assessment I recommend you take the Assessment Manager Key Skills course which is part of this bundle. It is used by many schools to give staff the basic SIMS Assessment skills that will allow them to access the more complex later courses.

Brilliant support given in a clear and concise manner - I would (and have!) recommend the course to all who use Sims - thank you so much!

I completed one of your courses last year which I found invaluable. I’ve just completed the Advanced Marksheet Techniques course and once again you didn’t let me down. The content was spot on covering lookup tables, Attainment 8 etc.I’m about to start work at a new school as a Data Manager in September this year. The course has filled in many gaps in my knowledge and has given me the confidence to move forward in the role and the ability to create more complex marksheets and assessment data. An excellent course, which I would fully recommend for those like me, who were left to learn it the hard way!!!

The video lecture format and webinar are a very useful way of approximating a hands on training scenario and are better than manuals as you can see the content being used. As an experienced Assessment user I have found the sessions very useful, particularly for the new KS4 resources and Programmes of Study functionality. The most useful information for a more experienced user is the examples of what and why you would use something, and suggestions for good practice.

Thanks also for this course it has been so beneficial and I have learnt so much. I've already told school that it's the best money they have spent!
