R.E.A.L. Attendance and Timetable System

Since the launch of the bespoke R.E.A.L. Attendance and Timetable app in January 2018, staff at R.E.A.L. have benefited from having essential streamlined data at their fingertips.  

Designed to make it easier and more efficient for staff to record learner attendance, a key aspect of the app is it’s reporting and analysis capabilities – crucially helping staff to quickly pinpoint and support learners with poor attendance.

In the future the aim is to extend real-time attendance data access to parents and commissioners. This would allow the ‘team around the learner’ instant access to accurate attendance data from a secure online dashboard.

Craig Wilkie, Director of the eLearning team and ICT partner for R.E.A.L. Education, designed the specialist app and dashboard. Craig said: “The feedback from staff about the app has been that it’s been easy to use and submit attendance data. Learning Managers are now being trained to use the powerful data analysis features to track and identify attendance issues and trends for groups of students and individuals.”

Dave Roberts, Business Manager at R.E.A.L. Education said: “The implementation of the new R.E.A.L. Attendance and Timetable system has gone very smoothly, and I would like to say a big thank you to all the team involved with the implementation. I am confident that the new system will give our staff the tools they need going forward to maximise learner engagement, and provide a quality interface for our parents and commissioners.”
