"If data is used in the right way with the right skills it should therefore be able to unlock the potential of each student."

Understanding Data uses six practical sessions to train leaders, teachers, governors and parents in techniques for handling and analysing data, empowering them to use data effectively to support pupil learning and progress.
This practical resource focuses on embedding generic data analysis processes that can be applied to any data set so staff will consistently be able to use data confidently without the need for continuous CPD. It equips them to successfully set targets, monitor progress, identify learners who need extra support and create timely interventions.
