Data-driven School Improvement
On This page

    Data-driven School Improvement is designed to develop the high-level data literacy skills needed to access, interpret, act on, and communicate data to support student success. 

    Participants will identify and analyse key themes in case studies and their own school’s data sets to: 

    • understand student wellbeing and learning data to inform future teaching, learning and leadership actions
    • engage in and lead professional conversations focused on data and evidence
    • identify strengths and limitations of data sources
    • identify and develop plans for action at the school level, including Annual Implementation Plans and School Strategic Plans.

    The day includes time to apply your learning to an aspect of your Annual Implementation Plan or School Strategic Plan with guidance from facilitators. Your team will improve their skills while progressing school improvement work.

    Please note, participants are required to have a functional level of knowledge on the Panorama software platform, as this course will not go into how to use the platform.
