Our reviews

“CONNECT from Changing Education has given us the opportunity to focus our time on the real issues regarding placements and not be overrun with admin or paperwork. It offers us an easy to use interface with which we can record, monitor and evaluate our placements which offering a reporting structure that gives us information and statistics to use for our KPIs. A great acquisition that we intend to use year on year as we grow.”

Andrew Snape – Newcastle and Stafford College

“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 We weren’t disappointed, the outdated paper-system was replaced by an efficient online programme that was easy to use and kept all the relevant information in a clear format.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!”

Hannah Rutherford

“Southam College has a successful relationship with Changing Education, working together to provide a cost-effective, simple delivery system for our Key Stage 4 work experience programme. The CONNECT online platform is useful in providing us with a single point of information on placements and qualifications. I was impressed with how easy the system is to use and to keep a track of all of our students’ work experience placements.”

Mr Hughes

“The Changing Education software provides a single source to track learners’, placements and employers. The system offers reports to help source placements, track learners progress and appraise the placement itself. The system also enables staff at all levels in the organisation to track how many learners have placements planned and completed, and how many are yet to have sourced a placement. Ultimately, the systems, processes and procedures are clear and transparent, making the process of securing, tracking and appraising work placements as fluid as possible.”

Lee Smith

“We have worked alongside Changing Education for five years now and have found the variety of packages they have developed invaluable in helping us to meet individual student needs. The CONNECT online platform is useful in providing us with a single point of information on placements and qualifications.”

James Pulle

Our relationships with The Changing Education Group is excellent, they are always there when we need them. Their work experience programme is very easy to follow and Connect brings everything together saving us time and money.
