Then for the Boarding Administrators we offer a Staff Survey or Staff Assessment Tool. This is a tool that is setup by any (registered with BSS) Boarding Administrator who may access & design their own assessment or staff survey. Assessment pieces may be shared among other senior Boarding Administrators or reused with modifications. The Survey and Assessment Tool is prepared by the Senior Boarding Manager, based on any material or training their staff have covered. It is emailed out from within this tool, completed online by their staff and automatically marked by the system. Completed assessment pieces are stored for future reference.
