I have specialist experience in developing and delivering tailored IT training with a focus on education professionals and education performance datasets such as Fischer Family Trust data and The National Strategies’ Integrated Data Sets, Pupil Tracking Tools and RAISEonline.
I can help you get the most out of any package, whether it be off-the-shelf software like Microsoft Excel or a bespoke government-scale system. Many previous projects have required me to learn a bespoke public sector package from the ground-up, and then distil and translate that experience into usable, accessible courses, documentation and e-learning content.
The content I deliver is based almost entirely on frequently asked questions coming from education professionals with similar data needs to your own, whether that be in a Local Authority, Regional Advisor or School setting.
Say no to generic
Ever been lost wondering how generic training examples apply to you? I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all training and customise all my courses around your individual needs, skill level and datasets. Unlike other training providers, I’m just as interested in helping you appreciate why to use a specific tool as I am in showing you how.
As a result of years of experience, I’ve hand-picked the most relevant topics in order to optimise tasks, increase efficiency, and save you time.
And it doesn’t all end at home time… I aim to foster an on-going relationship with my course delegates, providing on-going email and phone support, as well as a comprehensive online video library.
So, whether you wish to collaborate remotely, create your own data, analyse existing data, or simply present your findings in the most compelling manner – I’ve got the course for you… and if I haven’t, it’s only a discussion away!
What previous attendees had to say:
There was a real clarity to your explanations and you had the knack of making difficult processes look easy… and built our confidence to carry them out
Jeremy Richardson, Senior School Improvement Adviser, The National Strategies
Franco was a really patient and informative teacher who modelled and demonstrated with clarity and moved with speed but helped us to move with speed too . This was first class.
This was beautifully tailored training and like all good teachers Franco took us from where we were as individuals and represented ideas in different ways to help us access new knowledge .
The best piece of IT training I have ever received.
Marilyn Miners, Regional Advisor
Education Field Force, The National Strategies
Franco engaged and enthused us all. In particular he was very patient with the mixed levels of knowledge and on both days adapted the training to match individual and group needs.
