If you are a member of Performance Networks there a number of training courses that are on offer to you as part of the service. To find out more about the training on offer click on the below links.
If you have recently joined Performance Networks or would like some help on how to complete the data templates, we offer free data completion training. This training session helps in both understanding the performance networks reports and activities as well as more technical training on completing the data templates.
Once you have completed and submitted your data you will receive the full suite of APSE reports. At this stage you may wish to learn a little more on how to use the data and reports you have received. To assist with this we have data usage training sessions available, again these are free of charge.
The LAMS (Land Audit Management System) is a quality inspection system, initially developed by local authorities in Scotland and now rolled out on a UK wide basis, to monitor grounds maintenance, which can also be applied to street cleansing for a total street scene overview. If you are a member of APSE’s performance networks you will be able to use LAMS to measure the quality of your own localities, and at the same time benchmark these against other local authorities. You can choose between using the system to monitor grounds maintenance, street cleansing and/or cemeteries and crematorium services.
This training course allows you to be involved in the data validation and error checking processes for APSE performance networks. This includes a variety of opportunities to get involved in group checking and on-site audits. The validator training day is taking place on 19th September 2019, in Manchester. After the training day you will be invited to take part in the data validation and error checking processes for those selected for the best and most improved performer awards in advance of the awards ceremony in Blackpool on 5th December. The validations will take place in October and November, so we would particularly welcome those who would be able to assist during these months.
