Continuing Professional Development

Accelerate improvement - support and development for more effective use of data

The GO 4 Schools Education Services Team offer a range of tailored initial training and CPD for schools to ensure the management and set-up of GO 4 Schools is aligned to the school's working practices and data requirements. The in-house team consists of ex-senior leaders and an experienced data manager who have recently worked in a range of schools who fully understand the challenges faced by schools in a changing education environment. Our expertise is based on a collaborative understanding of schools' policies and priorities are then giving the best advice in the application of GO 4 Schools.

Options are available, from a range of training packages to bespoke consultancy suitable for:

  • Schools who are extending their application of GO 4 Schools including the purchase of new modules.
  • Induction for new staff who are key to managing data within the school e.g. Data managers, SLT.
  • Update training for new functionality in GO 4 Schools for a range of staff.
  • Refresher training for schools who wish to progress their implementation of GO 4 Schools.
  • Health check and review of your use of GO 4 Schools followed by advisory support and training.

In-house training offers

As the complexity of school information management changes and the functionality of GO 4 Schools is updated to reflect national school performance data, we want to ensure that you and your staff have access to the most relevant and timely data for your school, as well as the tools and skills to track and analyse this information effectively. We have therefore developed a series of in-house training sessions aimed at Data Managers and those who have the main responsibility for managing the day to day information and set up of GO 4 Schools. Our Data Manager training sessions are designed specifically to support and develop key staff in the management and implementation of GO 4 Schools:

  • Induction training is for those who are new in post and need an introduction to the management settings and analysis tools in GO 4 Schools.
  • Refresher training is for those who have some experience of using GO 4 Schools but would like an update on new functionality and educational updates to ensure they are maximising their use of school data.
