What our colleges are saying

Activate Learning

“The students have become instantly engaged with the on-line handbook that they can complete and submit from their placements – it even allows them to use their mobile devices to upload photos of evidence which is a real benefit in encouraging engagement. It means they are more open to recording activities and developments and also ensures we can monitor progress in real-time and with fewer visits to employers. It also means we can ensure students are attending placements and that they feel safe and are progressing against their targets.”

Richard Durston – Group Director of Institutional Effectiveness, Activate Learning

We are really pleased with the Grofar system, as well as the support we have received throughout the implementation process and beyond. The quick response times and the constant stream of improvements being made to the platform are incredibly impressive.
