Standard Courses

We offer a full range of SIMS.net and FMS training courses throughout the academic year. These are particularly useful for new staff  or staff  who have changed roles but are also invaluable for the successful introduction of new modules.

Many courses are available every half-term where some are offered on a seasonal basis to coincide with their use during then year e.g. Exams and NOVA.

Training is also offered to individuals keen to explore a career in school administration and would like to familiarise themselves with the SIMS suite of applications.

On-Site Training

We have a mobile training suite that allows us to deliver on-site training courses for up to 10 people at any appropriate location around the country.

Use of the mobile training facility is advantageous if:

  • You want large groups of staff trained on a training day (either as a single course or a shorter session delivered several times to smaller groups)
  • You require a course tailoring to your specific needs
  • If you would like some on-site training, please call or e-mail our help desk to discuss your requirements.
