Ten schools in the north east of England have taken on popular careers guidance management solution Grofar, in a contract that will offer consistency and continuity of careers support across the area.

The North Tyneside Learning Trust is a collaboration of 46 schools working in partnership with employers, universities and colleges to improve education and life chances for all children and young people.

The Trust’s decision to opt for Grofar was taken in order to manage and improve the careers service it could offer within its secondary schools, and maintain information on one unified platform.

CEO of the North Tyneside Learning Trust Kehri Ellis said: “The Trust is keen to support its schools to manage careers education more effectively. One of our 10 secondary schools already uses Grofar software, which was made available to them as part of the Gatsby Career Benchmarks Pilot, so it made sense to offer the same careers management system across our schools as part of a 12 month pilot project.”

James Robertson, Managing Director of Grofar, said: “We are delighted to be providing Grofar to the North Tyneside Learning Trust. It’s a fantastic collaboration and I know that our management solution is going to make a big difference to the way careers guidance is delivered. Having everything in one place, easily monitoring progress and working hand in hand with the students will really help the Trust ensure all students are given the best possible future opportunities and go on to meet their full potential”.
