What Our Customers Say

Activate Learning College Group

"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 21st century interface and allows staff to focus on the quality of placement rather than administration, monitoring and chasing."

Richard Durston, Group Director of Institutional Effectiveness, Activate Learning
Milton Keynes College

"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. 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."

Kirsten Lea, Deputy Head of School, Work Experience, Milton Keynes College
Bath College

" Grofar has been a fantastic purchase for Bath College and has been a huge step in our progression toward being a fully sustainable college whilst running T-levels in the coming years. In a few short weeks we have noticed a huge difference in staff productivity as Grofar has dramatically shortened the amount of administration time it was taking our work placement officers to process a Work experience or Industry Placement. Time which can now be spent in other key areas such as completing assessments and networking with local Businesses.

Students love the look of the website with its ‘app’ like interaction and this has had a massive increase on the not only the amount of learners recording their hours and completing placement assessments but the accuracy of this data which will be key for Auditing purposes. The employers so far that have had interaction with the system have fed back positives things such as ease of completing tasks as well as the short amount of time it takes to action requests such as verifying hours for multiple learners.

Grofar staff have been brilliant throughout the whole process from demonstrating the product, to working closely with our MIS team to ensure data is syncing with our Pro Suite software to then tailor-making our own system to meet our needs. Overall, in my opinion Grofar is the best system out there for capturing the amazing work our learners are doing for their work experiences and industry placements and we are yet to unlock the full potential of the software”."

Paul Short, Work Placement Officer, Bath College
