Course Information

In 2019 we are running the Timetabling Concepts Course, the Timetabling Primary Course, the Overview Course and the Daily Organiser Course.

All Primary, Overview and Daily Organiser Training Courses use our latest software version. Course materials are enhanced and updated on a regular basis.

Training courses are run by Timetabling Solutions Trainers who all have a background working and timetabling in schools. Our Trainers also construct timetables year round for schools with all different types of structures and curriculum requirements.

All training materials and catering are supplied at each course. Courses run from 9.00 am - 4.00 pm each day.

Overview Course & Daily Organiser  


The Overview Course covers the use of the Student Options and Timetable Development modules of The Timetabler. Student Options is covered on day one and Timetable Development is covered on days two and three. Participants will gain the most benefit from attending the three days consecutively to see the whole timetabling process. However the modules can be attended separately if preferred.

The Daily Organiser Course usually runs on the day following the Overview course and may also be attended separately or consecutively with the Overview Course.


  • Overview Student Options Module (Day One)


This one day instructor led module of the Overview Course is designed for new Timetablers who have some experience in timetabling and require an overview of how student elective subjects (options) are managed, using The Timetabler V8 (or above). The course illustrates how student core and elective lines are managed within the Roll Class concept developed by Timetabling Solutions. Participants will use our prepared data to develop the knowledge base and skills essential to creating the grid lines. This course covers the essential knowledge and skills needed for the Advanced Courses.
