Student Engagement

Students are encouraged to take more active involvement in their aspirations and choices using technologies that they are familiar with every day. Whether it is careers research or work experience log books the experience will be improved.

Employer Engagement

All your business contacts and interactions stored in one place and visible to all in the school. Businesses will get the feedback and recognition that they deserve and you will spend less time chasing paperwork.

Case Studies

As soon as you get going on Grofar, it’s straightforward and easy to use. With a couple of clicks we can filter placement information and see where we are with things; for example, whether students are behind and need additional support. Plus, Grofar takes student data straight from our MIS so it’s always up to date. Grofar is best in class compared to everything else we’ve seen when it comes to tracking student placements.

Grofar is a great software system that really works as we need it to and is helping us to ensure we can build capacity in our Work Experience & Industry Placement programme. The team at Grofar are always very open to new ideas and making sure the platform caters to our specific needs. We're impressed with their positive approach and availability to support us whenever we need them.

Grofar provides us with the structure and process to drive the success of our placement programme. It’s been wonderful to have everything consolidated within Grofar. We are using the platform for all of our Industry and Study Programme Placements – the saying is: If it’s not on Grofar, it’s not happening.

Grofar streamlines and simplifies the whole business process: from placement set-up, to student and employer engagement. It puts the student in control of their experience via a cutting-edge mobile interface, and allows staff to focus on the quality of placement – rather than administration, monitoring and chasing.

The Grofar destinations exercise was far simpler than the previous manual way of collecting data and I now have information for the LA ahead of time as well as a detailed insight into pupils that need extra support.

As a UTC that has a high turnover of industry partner events, it is important that we find the most effective ways of managing our employer engagement. Grofar has provided us with a single platform allowing us to track and monitor the impact and quality of our events. It provides students with independence and raises their aspirations whilst managing their own career paths.

Grofar allows us to further develop the Careers Service for our students, enabling them to track their progress and set goals for their futures.

The Grofar system was implemented with a link to SIMS that meant that all the pupil data was automatically transferred and updated. Business contacts were imported from a spreadsheet and pupils were invited to create their initial student passports as part of a dedicated Careers lesson using the IT suites.

I believe this independent and impartial on-line service has a lot of resources and features which would allow me to work more efficiently as a sole practitioner.

We would be delighted to show you around a fully populated system so you can get a flavour for how much time you can save using Grofar and how it would help improve your school CEIAG provision. This usually takes 20-30 minutes.

Following a demo, we will be happy to provide you with a hands-on free trial or answer any questions you may have.
