Data analysis – Using your SHBE and CTR Data extracts
Wednesday 25th November 2020

The Leapark Hotel, Grangemouth
IRRV Scotland is pleased to announce that we are able to run our autumn training programme at the Leapark Hotel, Grangemouth. A great deal of thought has been given to providing training in a safe and socially distanced manner and this will necessarily significantly limit the number of delegates who can attend events but we do wish to respond to the many requests we have had about recommencing our training events. Detailed arrangements have been made with the venue to ensure you have an enjoyable training experience in a safe and socially distanced environment in keeping with the requirements of the Scottish Government’s Route Map out of lockdown.

The workshop is ideally suited to staff who manage a benefits service and aims to show attendees how to analyse their caseload using the SHBE and CTR data extracts.

This will be a fully interactive workshop and it would be beneficial if attendees would bring a laptop and their SHBE and or CTR 606 extract.

The programme includes:

  • What are the SHBE/CTR extracts?

  • What does it tell us?

  • How it can be used to target work to remove waste.

    • SSSC shortfalls and DHP

    • Incomes on non passported claims

    • Safeguard to allow full automation of UC incomes

    • Measuring interventions activity and outcomes

    • Creating your own reports

    • Tracking change and spotting issues

    • Identifying customers in need of additional support

      • Free School Meals

      • Funded Nursery for 2 year olds

      • Missing Severe disability premium

      • Low Tax credits and State Retirement Pension

  • How can this be used within the Benefits Service?

  • How can the information be used to meet wider local authority objectives?

    • Ward level information

  • Review, questions and closure

 

The day is designed to be interactive and promotes sharing of knowledge and best practice. Timings are indicative and are subject to change on the day.

The course will be facilitated by Paula Doherty. Paula is a leading benefits practitioner, the IRRV Education Liaison Officer and Vice President of the IRRV Scottish Association Executive. Paula is also Chair of the IRRV Welfare Reform Consortium.
