Simplify the whole administration of WEX and put the students at the heart of the process. Easily track placements, Insurance, Health and safety and generate high quality online student log books that they will use, typically on smart phones, while on placement to record activity, photos and feedback.
As your students move on keep track of them and keep them updated using our communication and email tools and dedicated Alumni portal. Students can then reconnect and offer pledges and services to support the school and provide real examples from the world of work. Now with Facebook and LinkedIn connections.
Building on the business database is a set of tools that allows you to engage with employers to seek support and services.
