The CST Data Leaders Network is a unique development network for those leading on data management, insight and compliance within school trusts, such as Chief Information Officers, Directors of Insight, Heads of Data and MIS, Data Managers and Protection Officers and Data Controllers.
It is intended to:
This virtual network is a safe and supportive environment in which to develop understanding of some of the key challenges related to data analysis, governance and protection across a group of schools, access expertise from across the sector, and connect with a professional community of like-minded peers.
Participation in the network is free for member trusts as a benefit of CST membership.
The network meets virtually once every half term. These meetings include a practitioner-led presentation on a topic that members have identified, followed by a discussion and a networking opportunity.
Virtual meeting themes and dates for this academic year are:
A personal reflection on the changing role and expectations of data within school trusts over the last decade, and a consideration of the opportunities and challenges that Derek sees for the sector across the next wave of trust growth and development.
Standardising assessment, data and reporting to improve outcomes for children is a goal that many trusts are working towards. The David Ross Education Trust (DRET) has been on this journey for the last two years, which has led it to redevelop primary and secondary phase assessment systems to create a smooth, multi-facetted analysis process. David Sands, Data Manager for DRET will share his experience of leading this work and highlight the key changes made as part of the process.
This additional meeting is for colleagues preparing for MIS change in their trusts in the coming year. Based upon their extensive experience of working with schools and trusts through system change, Tom and Nic will share guidance on how to procure a new MIS, including:
There will also be an opportunity to network with others on a similar journey.
The pandemic has led to a fundamental shift in the way we collect, analyse and use education data, with pupil absence a major catalyst for this change. The session will focus on 3 key areas:
Next year's programme will include a one-day conference to create an opportunity for colleagues to come together in person.
The CST Data Leaders Network is supported by:
If an attendee is no longer able to attend, the place can be transferred to a suitable alternative colleague from within the same organisation. CST PD must be notified by email to email@example.com and will liaise with the school trust to make the necessary transfer arrangements.
By developing services and booking speakers CST PD is committed to a certain level of costs and therefore has to implement a cancellation policy:
Where events are part of a series, the attendee is committing to attendance at all sessions.
Where individual sessions from a series are missed, CST PD cannot commit to providing any additional resources to "catch-up"’ on missed content.
CST PD cannot provide a full or partial refund for any individual sessions or content from a series that is missed.
