Do we have a guide to using Profiles anywhere? I wouldn't mind trialling this with a year group at some point to see how it operates and how teachers would react to it instead of the tiny boxes in AM7.
I had the LA show me a few years back but the system seemed very complex to me. I struggled to get my head round it and the biggest worry was missing grades/comments after a session was closed. And how I can get SLT and Form Tutors to check (Tutors like to see what everyone else has written for a student and then comment).
Tried the online documentation? I've always learnt from those rather than courses. http://simspublications.com/204564/Profiles.pdf
We've used it for a number of years and I picked up most things using the documentation on supportnet.
