Welcome to Grofar

Grofar is the leading, SIMS integrated, careers guidance management solution that helps schools to meet Statutory Guidance, satisfy Ofsted and achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks.

Grofar reduces the time careers leaders and careers co-ordinators spend on administration and stores all information in one place. Grofar evidences your careers service activity helping to improve your careers guidance programme.

The easy and effective one-system solution encompasses everything from careers service planning, event organisation and feedback to destination data collection and work experience management. A pioneering student careers passport ensures every student evidences careers activity and has access to aspirational careers advice, action plans and careers resources.

We believe every student should have access to quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance and our job is to help make this possible. Grofar was developed by the trusted, award-winning team that created Schoolcomms.

The importance of providing a good careers service to students

We firmly believe that developing career aspirations at an early stage creates an environment where children want to learn. And when children want to learn, they’re easier to teach. And when children are easier to teach, teaching gets better. And when teaching gets better, children learn more. And when children learn more…..they’re in a far better position to achieve their aspirations….whatever that might turn out to be!

Let’s do this together!
