Data management

To improve the way that data is collected and shared in schools, and between schools and other interested parties (such as local authorities and government agencies), Becta, DCFS and DIUS recommend the adoption of the Systems Interoperability Framework. Proof of concept work is currently underway. You can find out more about the benefits for schools on the Systems Interoperability Framework Association UK website.
