CONNECT Software

CONNECT is the optimum work experience software designed by teachers for teachers. CONNECT assists with organising, recording, tracking, evaluating and simplifying. Our software offers access to a comprehensive and up-to-date employers database and easy completion of risk assessments. We provide software suitable for schools, academies, colleges, universities and Education Business Partnerships across the UK.

CONNECT has been developed by Changing Education – experts in work experience, work placements and careers advice. Everyone in the Changing Education team has a background working in education, which has enabled us to develop work experience software that directly addresses the needs of schools and colleges.

Benefits to schools and colleges


  • Merge your existing database onto CONNECT, or search through the existing 8,500 organisations currently supporting students on work experience
  • Easy-to-use electronic risk assessments can be sent directly to the placement provider for completion.
  • Great for Ofsted, CONNECT effectively records student work placements, including all mandatory health and safety regulations, performance appraisals and even certificates for all learners.
  • Paperless and easy to access, CONNECT makes it simple to deliver and record student action plans which can be accessed by all.

“Changing Education promised a fresh approach to the endless paperwork and filing that had previously been involved.  We weren’t disappointed, the outdated paper-system was replaced by an efficient online programme that was easy to use and kept all the relevant information in a clear format. CONNECT has really changed our working day, we love it!”
