Transforming your school data into Wisdom
Schools have become data rich in recent years in terms of collecting student information. However, is the data leading to knowledge through effective analytics and more importantly is this leading to wisdom through meaningful strategic actions across the school? Our consultancy support is designed to help you answer these questions.
The intelligent use of data affects the work of all professionals involved in education. There can be no going back to the days when decisions were made on hunches and anecdotal information. We must present and explain data in ways which inspire trust and confidence, and lead to appropriate choices and judgements being made. Using data effectively will help everyone involved in school improvement.
We are delighted to bring to you an exciting and comprehensive package that will support your school through its data journey to wisdom.
