Apprentices present to University of
Two members of the Prior's Court team
have demonstrated the power of our
innovative data platform, Prior Insight, to
an audience at the University of Oxford.
Bryn Dunn (below left) and Luke Garland (below

in Digital Healthcare Science at the University of
Warwick, with the hands-on learning aspect of their
course taking place at Prior's Court.
In April, the pair gave a presentation, via Zoom, to
the Collaborating Centre for Values-Based Practice,
based at St Catherine's College at the University
of Oxford, in front of an audience that included
professors, doctors, course directors and chief
executive offi cers.
Prior Insight harnesses the
power of modern digital
technology to record and
present large amounts of
data, to provide insights into
the complexities of autism,
enabling a better understanding and mapping of
behaviours. Through this better understanding, we
are able to predict behaviour and make positive
interventions where needed to help our young
people have more good days.
Bryn and Luke said: "The presentation was titled
'Predicting What Matters Using Big Data' and
was based around how the large quantity of data
collected on Prior Insight can be used to inform
shared decision making.
"We introduced Prior's Court, our roles within the
Prior Insight team and the content of our degree;
we then discussed case studies which had been
produced to improve the lives of the young people."
"Finally, we discussed how decision making amongst
the various stakeholders in the young people's lives,
can be informed by reports from the data collected."
The opportunity to deliver the presentation came
about thanks to Professor Ed Peile, the designer of
the degree apprenticeship course.
The presentation can be seen on the "Knowledge
Hub" section of our website.
Bryn and Luke joined Prior's Court in January as our
fi rst Degree Apprentices.
