Student Options with 'Timetabling Solutions'

Timetabling Solutions (Australian) - Student Options

Course Information

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

Collecting students? elective choices and designing your option blocks is an integral part of the timetabling process, one which may not involve the timetabler in some schools. This in our opinion is slightly counterintuitive as an option scheme could be designed that would not be possible to timetable!

The course is very hands-on right from the start ensuring you know how the software operates as well as the work flow required in capturing, analysing and processing the data. So if you operate fixed blocks or preference-led blocking you'll soon be up and running! For some schools collecting student options and designing the blocks has historically been a manual task. But now is the time for Timetabling Solutions to take away all the donkey work and produce the final result and many other possible iterations in much less time. This allows you, the timetabler, to ensure that the option block pattern used is efficient for your timetable.

If you would like to learn more about efficient and effective curriculum design we would suggest that you attend the Principles of Timetabling course.

If you would like to learn about how to construct a timetable we would suggest attending the Timetabling Construction with Timetabling Solutions course which typically runs the following day.

We operate small groups of a maximum trainer to delegate ratio of 1:8 and you will receive a certificate of attendance.
Please note this course is only for Timetabling Solutions (Australian) users.
