Timetable & Admin Training 2018

Our training courses are off to a flying start with the first of the Admin courses held last Thursday in Dublin. Our experienced consultants Emmanuel and Conrad will be on the road to teach you everything you need to know about VSware timetabling and administration. During each session, we spend some time answering specific questions and helping schools overcome their own particular challenges. Every school has different needs so it’s a great opportunity to get some expert guidance on what direction you should be taking on a particular topic. As well as the structured content of each course which takes up the majority of the day, this interactive element is really important for attendees to get the most out of the training.

The events will take place in 8 locations nationwide so if you’re looking to book a place, you should be able to find somewhere that’s not too far from home. Take a look at the overview of the training dates below for both Admin and Timetabling. Keep an eye on the events page and blog for updates on training days.

Administration Training Days

Throughout this year we are running a 2-day Admin course covering all administration aspects of VSware. Newly employed admin staff and secretaries could benefit from this training if they were not with the school at the time of the initial training, however this course is open to anyone with secretary access who is interested in learning more about how to use VSware and best practices.

New for 2018 is our Admin Refresher Course. This will cover VSware administration essentials with the option to attend days with a focus on either Attendance or Term reports & Letter Templates. Again, this course is open to anyone with secretary access who wants to recap on the basics of administration in VSware in just one day. Perhaps it’s been a few years since you attended the initial training after signing up with VSware and while you use the system every day, you think there may be some areas that you could use more efficiently.

We are also running a one-day course dedicated to attendance which deep dives into all aspects of managing attendance in VSware. This course covers everything from recording to reporting and is useful for secretaries, yearheads or anyone responsible for the school’s attendance record. Places for this one are filling up fast so be sure to securing your booking soon!

Timetable training dates

This year we will continue our 2-day Timetable Training and Refresher Courses.

Day 1 & 2 deep dive into all aspects of timetabling and options, so you will leave this course with a knowledge of all the key areas needed to create your school’s timetable, even if you’re a first-timer.

To register for the Refresher course, you must have attended Day 1 & Day 2 training and also completed a timetable using VSware in some previous year. This is most important as this course will move at a fast pace in the knowledge that the attendees are already familiar with timetabling in VSware. This course will re-familiarise you with all of the screens and features from the 2016/17 school year timetable software and will introduce you to new features that have since been added to our timetabling software. New features were added based on feedback from schools.
