Our half-day course on the use of FFT Aspire in school aims to provide delegates with an opportunity to take a new look at FFT and develop a deeper understanding of its capabilities. From taking an in-depth look at the Summary Dashboard, through a re-examination of the variety of the reports and estimates to develop a deeper understanding of how these can be used as an effective tool to help individual, subject and whole school target setting. We will also look at ways in which your school can use the new Student Explorer feature to keep on top of individual student progress to ensure that every single child is supported and challenged.
Bespoke, in-house training:
• Does your school use Fisher Family Trust data?
• Would you like to use it even more effectively to aid school improvement?
• Have you staff who are either new in post and who would benefit for an introduction to FFT and its capabilities, or staff who would benefit from a refresher to ensure they are using it effectively?
• Do you wish your Governors were more ‘data aware’?
If you have answered YES to at least two of those questions we can help!
