More inclusive training enables even faster adoption

iSAMS and its portals, modules and apps are all intuitive and user-friendly. That doesn’t mean you’re on your own. We’ve made your training choices as flexible as the system itself.

To get you started after your data has migrated to iSAMS, we’ll design you a personalised post-implementation training plan, tailored to your specific installation.

You’ll learn from an experienced trainer who’ll understand your priorities as well as knowing iSAMS inside and out.

How that training takes place, and which of your staff it involves, is really up to you. We recommend your IT manager, assigned iSAMS administrator and at least one champion from your teaching team. You’ll probably want to include others, such as a member of the bursary and accounts teams.

Delivery depends on the people involved, and we’re happy to advise based on what’s worked best for hundreds of other schools.

Different modules suit different forms of training: classroom-style for admin staff, one-to-one with management, for instance.

Choose training in anything you need, from a focus on admin, to academic management, to technical reporting services (SSRS).

Even after your initial implementation training, we’re always available to help.
