Observe User Seminar

Sisra Observe User Seminar

Join us for a working lunch followed by an afternoon of interesting talks, discussion and ideas.

Our half-day seminars offer you a chance to hear a fantastic range of speakers, chat one-on-one with the SISRA team and take some time after a very busy exams season to simply listen, away from the distractions of the school day. There will be time to network with like-minded professionals and we will facilitate discussion throughout the day.

Speakers include Dr Rachel Lofthouse, Professor of Teacher Education and founder of CollectivEd, and Jonny Uttley, CEO of the The Education Alliance Trust.

These events are ideal for staff responsible for teaching and learning, professional development, CPD or raising standards. If you’re unsure whether or not it would be suitable please contact us via email at events@sisra.com or call the office on +44151 650 6995 to discuss with one of the team.

The price of the seminar is £49 per person, excluding VAT. This includes a working lunch and refreshments.

Roadshows

 

Our roadshows are a great way to find out more about Sisra Analytics and Observe. Held at Sisra schools up and down the country, our roadshows allow you to see our systems in action and discuss how they would work in your setting.

Roadshows are presented by one of our consultants, alongside a member of staff from the host school. Typically experienced educationalists, all have a working knowledge of Sisra Analytics or Sisra Observe. In addition, they also have an understanding of the challenges faced today by staff dealing with data requirements for tracking performance, forecasting achievement, and school improvement. Therefore, they are well qualified to answer any questions you may have.

Roadshow demonstrations usually take around an hour, including a question and answer session.

 

DataMeets

 

DataMeets are free regional events organised by Sisra. The aim is to provide data managers, exams officers and other support staff (as well as staff with responsibility for administering Sisra Analytics) with the opportunity to get together on a termly basis to discuss important changes, to network and to seek advice.

DataMeets are usually hosted in Sisra schools all over the country, but this term our DataMeets are all online. The meetings are chaired by a member of the Sisra consultancy team, however we keep the agendas as general as possible.

  • DfE Policy and Statement of Intent changes/updates
  • School census
  • Exams and results analysis
  • Target setting
  • Training teachers in the use of data
  • Best CPD and courses
  • Interventions and pupil tracking/monitoring
  • Anything of interest from attendees

 

Meetings normally last around 1.5 hours. Places are limited to a maximum of 3 attendees per school and are open to Sisra Analytics customers only. Once booked on you’ll receive an email with a meeting link a few days before the DataMeet.
