A series of documents have been produced to help the suppliers of information systems for schools and LAs to support the storage and extraction of data required for the School Workforce Census. These can be found on the information for software suppliers’ page. The Department has also developed two comma-separated value (CSV) to XML conversion tools - one for the data required for school employed staff and the other for centrally employed staff - as well as an access database where LAs and academies can download Census data from COLLECT for data checking and analysis.
Access to tools for use by those who have non-standard systems unable to produce data extracts in the required XML format.
