We are very proud of our CONNECT software and it’s great to hear that our clients love it too. Hannah Rutherford at Morecombe Community High School let us know how much she loves using CONNECT and how it has helped change her working day:
“In 2015 we decided to work with Changing Education to deliver our year 10 work experience programme. The company promised a fresh approach to the endless paperwork and filing that had previously been involved. We weren’t disappointed, the outdated paper-system was replaced by an efficient online programme that was easy to use and kept all the relevant information in a clear format. We were able to update the details ourselves and keep a track of each student’s risk assessment progress. The feedback from employers and visit notes from the teachers were also conveniently in one place too. Staff at Changing Education were always in regular contact by phone to email to ensure the process was running efficiently and are always helpful when dealing with queries.
Following the success of our first Work Experience, we were pleased to continue with the placement service from Changing Education for our next year group. When we were looking for a more efficient way to record our year 11 careers interviews taking place in school, Changing Education again had a solution! Using the Connect software, we have been able to keep a continuous record of our students from year 10 to 11 and it has given us the flexibility to interview and issue student feedback for the whole year group in just one term; A task that has only been possible with Connect software. It offers a clear, straightforward interview log that can be updated by the careers team and also viewed by senior management teaching and support staff at any time. Features include destination statistics and the ability to follow up students that may need additional help at a later date. The printable student feedback combines bespoke advice with more general details which saves us so much time. The less time we spend typing the more time we have to spend with students discussing their plans and ideas. ‘Connect’ has really changed our working day, we love it!”
