Who should attend?
- Daymap Leaders who are looking for an overview of attendance and reports they can use to manage their school effectively
- Administration staff who handle day-to-day attendance and admin work needed to record and utilise data
The course will be presented in a computer lab setting with internet access, but BYOD option is also available.
We recommend that schools send at least two staff members to this course so that teams can reflect and plan on improving existing processes or the implementation of new processes. There will be time for discussion, reflection and application to participants’ own contexts.
All course participants receive training materials, morning tea and lunch. We limit our sessions to small groups, allowing participants to engage directly with our experienced trainers and to share and collaborate with other members of the Daymap community.
