This course deals with how to change rooms and add a teacher or assistant, amend the timetable following staff changes, establish teacher and room carousels, implement communication between Nova-T and SQL, as well as using non-class codes (NCC). If you wish to further your knowledge of Nova-T, you may benefit from the four day Curriculum Management Using Nova-T course.
Prior knowledge of Nova-T is helpful, but not assumed.
The responsibility of maintaining the timetable usually lies either with the Timetabler, the SIMS/Data Manager or administrative staff in a school.
