Our reviews

“The service provided to date is 5 star. My contact at CONNECT has given me an immense amount of support throughout the process and adopts an honest and tailored approach to our needs and how they can be supported by the system. We are a team of 2 that have been charged with the role of raising our college Work Experience from 27% to 100% over a 3 year period whilst delivering on the Industry Placement figures each year.”

Tammy Randle – Kidderminster College

“CONNECT from Changing Education has given us the opportunity to focus our time on the real issues regarding placements and not be overrun with admin or paperwork. It offers us an easy to use interface with which we can record, monitor and evaluate our placements which offering a reporting structure that gives us information and statistics to use for our KPIs. A great acquisition that we intend to use year on year as we grow.”

Andrew Snape – Newcastle and Stafford College

“I started using CONNECT when I first started working in Work Experience at the time being the only member of staff in WEX I found I quickly learnt to navigate the system.
As the department grew and my role developed CONNECT grew with me with the numerous developments that have been made by Changing Education either requested or through continuous development of the systems.

I now manage the work experience across three campuses for 4000 students and have been involved in a pilot for the new T Levels, we would not have been able to successfully do so and achieve 85% attendance for WEX without the use of CONNECT, through the guidance and training we have received and using Changing Education to risk assess our placements.”

Martine Mayo – Cheshire College South and West

“We decided to move to CONNECT because of the numerous benefits it offers us for developing a more streamlined and efficient service. Our previous database was very labour intensive and we felt it was not conducive to the best use of the team. With CONNECT our team can now be less weighed down with paper-based tasks and more customer-centric.”

Ken Williams, Barnet EBP

“Opportunity Sheffield decided to use CONNECT in order to streamline our processes and automate various activities, freeing up time to provide a better service to our schools and employer partners. It is simple to use, and provides a single system to manage and access everything about work experience including employer feedback and health and safety info.”

Edward Dawson, Schools work experience and ‘Apprenticeship ready’ manager, Sheffield City Council
