Free FFT Governor Dashboard training workshops, November & December 2013


Back in May, Fischer Family Trust (FFT) released the FFT Governor Dashboard for primary schools (KS2) and secondary schools (KS4). Working in partnership with the NGA and Wellcome Trust, FFT consulted widely with governors and schools during the development of the dashboard to make sure that it provides governors with the information they need to support and challenge schools. The dashboards are available for schools to download from the dashboard area in FFTLive ( Further information about the report can be found on the FFT website

Following on from a series of training workshops last term, FFT will be running further free training events for governors and school leaders in November and December, as follows:

  • LONDON - Wednesday 20th November: The Gibbs Building, The Wellcome Trust, 215 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE

  • BIRMINGHAM - Wednesday 27th November: The Studio, 60 Cannon Street, Birmingham B2 5EP

  • MANCHESTER - Tuesday 3rd December: The Portland Thistle Hotel, 3-5 Portland Street, Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester M1 DP 

Delegates can choose to attend a workshop at either 15:30 or 18:00.

The event, which will last about 90 minutes, will give delegates the space to improve their data literacy, an opportunity to practice using the dashboard containing their own school’s data, support from FFT specialists to analyse their school’s strengths and weaknesses according to the data, time to talk to other governors and develop questions for their next governing body meeting, as well as providing training resources to take back to their schools.
