We are delighted to announce a new release of the Data Navigator for Schools dashboard which includes exciting new features for the forecasting functionality.

Example five year forecast

It was already possible to create a snapshot scenario to quickly see the impact of changing key income and expenditure metrics across fees, staff and pensions costs, and other expenditure. This gives you a point-in-time update which you can compare with your chosen benchmark group.

The new functionality allows you to quickly create five-year scenarios based on the data you have already provided by changing any of your key metrics for each of the five years, including changing pupils, fees, staff, running costs, and more.

Like all functionality in the tool, updates are instant and allow you to have an interactive conversation with your stakeholders.

Watch the video below to learn more about this new feature.
