Students demand a quality digital interface to input their hours and experiences – the Grofar Industry Placement Platform provides one!

Getting students to accurately record their hours and experiences whilst on external placements has always been a challenge. With Extended Placements now upon us and T-Levels around the corner, colleges need to find ways of helping students engage to provide accurate and timely data. The Grofar Industry Placement Platform, developed in collaboration with Activate Learning, is designed with this at the forefront!

“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

Our cloud-based Industry Placement platform streamlines processes to manage placements, employer engagement and health & safety. Grofar supports straightforward integration with REMS, EBS, ProSolution and UNIT-e platforms.

Many colleges will have applied and been allocated funds through the “Capacity and Delivery Fund (CDF)” so now is a great time to look again at how to improve the delivery of your industry placements.
