Due to demand, an extra FFT Governor Dashboard webinar has been added to the autumn term series of free webinars. Education data specialists, FFT, are set to host the online event for school governors on Tuesday 13 October at 2pm.
The FFT Governor Dashboard, has been developed in partnership with the National Governors’ Association and the Wellcome Trust, and is now available through FFT Aspire, FFT’s new reporting and data tool for schools, local authorities and academy trusts.
All subscribing schools can download the Governor Dashboard from FFT Aspire, and share it easily with governors. Alternatively, governors can be provided with their own account, giving access to not only the Governor Dashboard but also a range of other information to aid their ‘support and challenge’ role.
Through a simple, six-page dashboard, governors can see how their school attainment and pupil progress compares to the national average, how it performs in different subjects, and whether any specific groups of pupils are under-performing, making it the ideal overview for planning towards Ofsted and Estyn inspections too.
The online events which last for thirty minutes will allow you to interact with webinar hosts and presenters by asking questions. FFT Managing Director Paul Charman says:
The great thing about the online sessions is that you can log on from anywhere – your own school, workplace or home – without the need of an outside venue.
The free webinar: FFT Overview for School Governors takes place on October 13, at 2pm.

The FFT Governor Dashboard has been developed in partnership with the National Governors’ Association and the Wellcome Trust. It clearly displays information about results and pupil progress, subject performance, progress of pupil groups, attendance and school context. Using our platform, school’s performance can be viewed instantly, and flagging up issues that governors can investigate. The Dashboard will also help governors get to grips with government’s new Attainment 8 measure, and from 2016 dashboards will also include Progress 8 analysis.
The Governor Dashboard was developed by governors for governors because we wanted to focus our design on presenting complex information in a way that would be clear and meaningful to you.
All subscribing schools can download the Governor Dashboard from FFT Aspire, and share it easily with governors. Alternatively, governors can be provided with their own account, giving access to not only the Governor Dashboard but also a range of other information to aid their ‘support and challenge’ role. The new Aspire has also been enhanced to include overviews of all key stages, providing a wealth of information in an accessible format.
FFT are holding free webinars for Governors to outline the new Governor Dashboard.
