Stuart Hodgkinson, director of Proficio Education, has delivered several one day training courses on Successful Timetable Construction on behalf of ASCL Professional Development. As lead consultant on Curriculum and Timetable Construction for ASCL, Stuart has visited several venues this autumn term including Leicester, Liverpool and London, with all courses fully booked and well received by delegates. The course looks at the key components of a successful timetable construction process, how they are put together to ensure the timetable maximises student progress and outcomes and provides delegates with practical solutions tailored for their specific context. Further courses in the new year are planned for Leeds, Templepatrick (Northern Ireland), Leicester and Bristol, with more details and booking through the ASCL website here.
Stuart Hodgkinson, director of Proficio Education was pleased to be able to represent the company and the School Resource Management Advisers at the Institute of School Business Leaders conference and the School and Academies Show, both at the NEC in Birmingham. At the SAAS Stuart was part of a panel with other Trust leaders to talk about the school funding situation. It coincided with the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement that contained better news for schools then expected but still represents a financial settlement that will put considerable strain on the sector’s budgets and will probably mean a real cost reduction in funding for 23-24 and beyond. Proficio Education will continue to work with others in the sector to press the government to ensure investment in education is given the highest priority.
Proficio Education have announced a new professional development partnership with ASCL (Association of School and College Leaders). Under the new partnership Proficio Education are now set to deliver timetabling training and consultancy for ASCL across the UK. Stuart Hodgkinson will lead the training sessions that will commence in January 2023, further details and booking forms are available here from the ASCL website
