This course is run jointly by St John Bosco Arts College Teaching School in Liverpool and Proficio Education. It is a two day course designed to provide the essential knowledge and skills to construct a school timetable using Nova T6. Level 2 is the level considered necessary for someone responsible for constructing a standard secondary school timetable.
Who is it for
This is an ideal course for staff with a new responsibility for constructing the school timetable.
Level 2 assumes some knowledge of school timetables but the course is suitable for those with little or no prior knowledge of Nova T6. It is also a good course for those with some NovaT6 experience who wish to develop a wider understanding of timetabling issues. It is primarily designed to support secondary schools in the North West area. To provide for the best possible individual support we only allow a maximum of six delegates on this course.
Day 1 focuses on the basic principles involved in putting together a timetable, including:
- Curriculum planning and delivery
- Maximising staff resources
- Budget and cost implications of construction
- Principles of timetable construction
- Introduction to Nova T6 as a tool for construction
Day 2 focuses on developing knowledge and skills of Nova T6 and includes:
- Producing a curriculum model
- Deploying staff to classes
- Dealing with session lengths (doubles, triples,,)
- Manual and Automatic scheduling
- Printing and Reports
- Timetable trouble-shooting
All the sessions will be highly interactive with the emphasis on providing the ‘hands on’ skills that a timetabler needs. The training allows participants to focus on timetabling issues in their home school and to work on finding creative solutions.
This course also offers ongoing support for timetablers as they go through their construction journey.
The full two day course costs £400 per delegate.
For all schools in the North West this includes half a day onsite timetable consultancy during the timetable construction period.
