ANDREA DOBSON

DATA CONSULTANT

Prior to joining SISRA Andrea had a varied career path including 10 years working for the Ministry of Defence, 4 years as an Early Years SENCo. Andrea was a Data Manager in a mixed 11-19 school in rural Wiltshire, where she became a confident user of various SIMs modules, including Assessment Manager, Course Manager, Nova-T6 and Exams Organiser. A passionate believer that when data is used smartly it has the power to change student outcomes, she has spent much of her time promoting the use of systems which would save teacher time, improve the parent/school interaction and improve student outcomes. With this goal in mind Andrea started using SISRA Online in 2010 and quickly fell in love with the accessibility and flexibility of the system, as did the teaching staff in her school. Andrea joined SISRA in 2018 and is based in the south west of England.

“It was the best and most enjoyable training I’ve had. Andrea helped us set up things that we hadn’t quite mastered and we worked on some great tweaks that I am very excited to have. It was totally interactive and not constrained. Andrea is a brilliant trainer and we really enjoyed having her here for the day.”
