    Best bet is talk to capita capita-sims.co.uk |

    EDIT: it won't cost a thing - i read it as though you wanted to buy sims

    If your school has it then they should have all the documentation/training they require. Mind you, it will only be available to those who have been authorised to use/access SIMS.

    The documentation is built into SIMS. Once you've logged in, click on the documentation link. If you don't have access you need to speak to your SIMS Manager or IT Department.

    I would try and limit what you want to know, SIMS is very vast and it's impossible to learn it all.

    I'll second that one! And there ain't that many that know more about the actual software, as applied to a normal secondary school, than I do! (Big 'eaded bugga!)
    It's a good job I have a colleague who is equally adept on the Technical side tho'!

    ...all during the Summer holidays... whilst doing 30 new installs... and updating all the documentation... and training the new staff... and not forgetting all those lovely calls that start "Last year we could..." and whatever you do, don't forget to update your calls, timesheets and other paper work the management has created for you to fill in, duplicate only for them A. not to use because they've got a new job and have moved on and the new manager has a new idea. B. tell you it's wrong because the final figure doesn't match what they wanted or C. Change it mid way...

    Not that that's ever happened before...

    You import them through Routines > Data in > Assessment then it is in the AMPA folder then the one relating to your secondary/primary status in the Assessment Pupil Progrss.

    if you need anything else just ask :-)

    As handy as it is, Capita watch this forum and I don't think they will be best pleased at it being given out.

    If someone would like to publish Serco's guide that would be really interesting!
