FFT training courses

Advanced courses for secondary schools

Explore FFT Aspire in depth and gain a thorough knowledge of your school’s performance data

How national research can supplement your self-evaluation and target setting

Working with the top experts, you will explore FFT Aspire in depth and gain a thorough knowledge of your school’s performance data. The course will focus on FFT Datalab’s latest national research, accountability changes and explore how FFT statistics can inform your work with robust and reliable evidence.

Key course components and outcomes:

  • Understand and examine FFT dashboards in greater depth including their implementation in school
  • Interpret performance data to review provision for vulnerable groups
  • Understand the statistical models used in FFT Aspire
  • Apply the national research being carried out by FFT DataLab to school practice
  • Consider best practice in setting pupil targets to maximise performance
  • Analyse your future potential performance using Aspire benchmark estimates
  • Use the new Student Explorer to facilitate staff development in improving intervention and provision for individual pupils

This full day course is ideal for senior leaders, data managers, middle leaders and teachers in secondary schools.

A pre-requisite is that participants either have attended our FFT Introductory course or hold the equivalent knowledge, as the basic report content, navigation and functionality of FFT Aspire is covered only briefly in this course. Please refer to the course outcomes under the ‘FFT Aspire Introductory training for England schools’ course to see whether you meet this important pre-course requirement.

You will need to bring along your username and password for FFT Aspire.
