DataMeets

“DataMeets are a great insight into the changes impacting SISRA and the data world giving data managers an opportunity to feedback how we approach issues and change. It gives me a chance to network with other data managers and discuss issues, concerns, useful software, sources of data etc. The events are well organised, structured and friendly, long may they continue!”
Data Manager, Cheshire West School

DataMeets are free regional events organised by SISRA. The aim is to provide data managers, exams officers and other support staff with the opportunity to get together on a termly basis to discuss important changes, to network and to seek advice.

DataMeets are hosted in SISRA schools all over the country, but you don’t have to be a SISRA customer to attend. Everyone is welcome! The meetings are chaired by a member of the SISRA consultancy team, however we keep the agendas as general as possible.
During the meetings we discuss a variety of topics and all attendees have the opportunity to add to the agenda in advance.

“I recently hosted a Data Meet event for SISRA. This was very easy to arrange as I was given all the necessary information of all attendees and I just needed to meet and greet fellow colleagues and join in the meeting. The biggest benefit is the time saved by having the event at your own school rather than having to travel to the meeting. Other benefits are sharing best practise, increasing knowledge and making new contacts who have similar job roles to myself.”
Data Manager, Bristol School

“Hosting the data meets have effectively helped me to complete my Data Manager Award – in demonstrating that I can learn about the practice of others and reflect how my own practice might be improved through this collaboration. It highlights an ability to positively influence practice in school at a department, faculty and whole school level. The SISRA team are always hugely supportive both prior to and during the meets. Please volunteer to host a meeting and keep these great sessions going!”
