Our Remote Training Courses
School ICT are able to deliver a selection of training courses remotely. Each course will be run by two SIMS consultants, one will deliver the content, one will assist with helping delegates with any issues or questions to ensure you get the most out of the training course. The courses will follow the same format as a scheduled formal course. You will receive the same training notes electronically which are yours to keep and will have access to a remote training database if required during the course. A recording of the course will be available for 1 week after the course for delegates to refer back to.
Our courses are offered to customers and non-customers including delegates who are not currently working in a school.

All courses are scheduled in the morning – 9:00 – 12:30. If a course is usually a full day or multiple days, this will be split over the course of a number of mornings, you must therefore be available for all dates/times. Times are subject to change if for example there are technical difficulties during the course.
School ICT Services is happy to accept course bookings from any school.
The costs for scheduled courses for schools are as follows:
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.
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.
If you need to cancel a place on one of our courses please contact the helpdesk.

Courses cancelled with five working days or less notice will incur a £20 cancellation fee.
Courses cancelled with two working days or less notice will incur a charge of 50% of the course cost.
Courses cancelled with no notice or on the day will incur a charge of the full cost.
