SIMS Conference 2019 - 27 September 2019

One Education & CAPITA SIMS Conference 2019

Join us at Etc Venues in the City Centre for a day of key information and best practice surrounding your school’s SIMS implementation.

SIMS is central to school’s operations, but can often be improved on how it is used in terms of making the most of the benefits. Experts from One Education’s ICT Support team as well as representatives from CAPITA will present a full day packed with actionable tips, system overview presentations and new ideas to ensure that you are making the most of your SIMS package.

A more detailed agenda will follow but you can expect a day packed with fantastic exhibitors, key knowledge sharing, advice and product overview. Food and refreshments will be provided, and you will have access to the venue’s conference and private working areas and wifi.

After an incredibly successful and beneficial event last year, we look forward to welcoming both returning and new delegates and we look forward to seeing you on the day.
