Validation Meetings


These are group data checking sessions to check the data which has been submitted to APSE while it is at a draft stage, prior to the final reports being produced.  The groups look at the data files returned to date, authorities excluded from performance indicators, high and low parameters and any new data collection. This will also flag up any extra queries that the performance networks team need to make. 

Please ensure that you submit your own data file(s) prior to this date.  If you submit your file(s) by the end of August we will have time to check your file and query any data with you prior to the sessions taking place.

Due to current circumstances these meetings will be held online. The meeting will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. You will be sent a Microsoft teams calendar invite prior to the meeting. To access the meeting, click on the link a few minutes prior to the meeting start. You do not need to have Microsoft teams software although it would be beneficial. You do require internet access and a web browser (e.g. Chrome).  

Morning sessions will be from 9:30am - 12:30 pm and afternoon session will be 1pm to 4pm.
