Alternative Provision, Extended Provision and Managed Moves within the Nottingham City Secondary Educational Partnership (NCSEP) were thriving. With learning taking place in various, wide spread locations, tracking the progress and attendance of these learners through traditional means such as paper-based registers and spreadsheets quickly became unsuitable and inaccurate. NCSEP required a secure centralised system to link all parties and provide real-time access to student records, no matter where they were located.
With NCSEP monitoring and supporting a large number of learners and delivery partners over a number of locations, perspective recommended the use of CLM which provides a fast and accurate web interface for schools, colleges and other delivery partners to record learner progress and attendance in a single location. CLM also provides the facility for NCSEP staff to have overall 24 hour access to the administration, monitoring and management of their provision.
Timely and accurate monitoring of attendance and progression has lead NCSEP to identify areas of concern quickly ensuring problem areas can now be fixed before it is too late. It has also given NCSEP the confidence to provide a wide ranging alternative curriculum to many learners with assurance that all data is robust and ready for OFSTED viewing at the click of a button.
