Skills Builder Integration: The skills builder framework has been fully integrated into CONNECT, Students can complete the self-assessment via the student access URL or via the Student App. You can access the student’s progress via the Skills Panel via the student’s home page.

We are still awaiting approval from Apple and Google for the new version of the app which includes the Skills Builder Assessment. If you want your students to complete the skills builder assessment asap, then please ask them to login via a P.C. / Laptop using their unique URL which can be found on the app email invite or via the student’s home page in the summary or pathways placement section.

Heath and Safety Risk Management

“Empower your staff to have greater control of health and safety risk management for all work placement activity. Manage and track in greater depth to enable quality assurance and compliance of all staff and employer activity.”

We provide customers with the autonomy to create and edit their own risk assessment templates. These are automatically sent out to employers once a student has been placed. CONNECT allows users to create risk assessments for individual employer categories. This ensures that the risk assessment is always relevant to that sector. Our clever system keeps staff constantly updated regarding outstanding Risk Assessment figures.
