Timetabling Workshop days

Course Information

  • Price : £225 + VAT
  • Duration : 1 day

Have you ever wished that you get away from phone calls, emails and knocks on the door so that you could work on the timetable in peace with expert advice at hand?

If so then a Timetabling workshop day with MIST Services is for you.

The timetabling workshop days are an excellent way of getting expert help when it is needed. There is no set agenda as it is set by your individual needs! It doesn't matter if you are a TimeTabler, Facility Scheduler, Nova T6 or Timetabling Solutions user. All are welcome.

You can come for as many days as you would like, just imagine how much timetabling you can get done in just a couple of days away from school with expert help there when needed. Delegates also have the additional benefit of meeting and engaging with other timetables. Getting ideas and inspiration (and often sympathy) from other timetablers is invaluable.

Examples of how you could use the workshop days include:

* During the Autumn Term you could use the 'Workshop' days to start setting up your basic data and the main parts of your curriculum diagram. Many timetablers attend Workshop Days to perfom their annual ?roll over? with advice on hand to make the process is as quick and efficient as possible.
* During the Spring Term you can finalise this data entry, and start 'What if' investigations to help formulate a scheduling strategy.
* During the Summer Term, you can schedule and trouble shoot your timetable or if appropriate look at the exporting of your timetable to your MIS!

No matter what you wish to achieve the agenda is yours with expert help at hand if you hit a problem or have any queries.

This is an excellent and very cost effective alternative to consultancy!
