CONNECT software



Established work experience software from education professionals.

Established work experience software from education professionals.

Powered by Changing Education, CONNECT has been designed by teachers and refined by technical experts over the past 10 years, to deliver the optimum work experience digital platform for schools and colleges. Former teachers ourselves, we understand the frustrations of traditional time-consuming approaches to work experience. CONNECT brings efficiency, budget savings, quality of placements and rich evidence for Ofsted reporting and audit trails.

Getting all the data you need at the touch of a button!


The significant use of automation in the product means that your responsibilities are covered at least through automation and then you can follow up with quality provision.

What is automated?

When a placement is arranged:

  • The system sends the learner and employer confirmation of the match – this includes timetables, health issues, student and employer preparation.
  • The system sends the employer a health and safety template – matched to your organisation.
  • The system asks for mid point assessments if your student is doing an industry placement.

At the end of a placement:

  • The system asks the employer for feedback and on return of an email updates CONNECT with their feedback.
  • The system asks the student for feedback and on return of the information updates CONNECT with their feedback.

With all the important stuff done – you can now concentrate on the quality!

Record hours

Unlike other systems we record hours that are fed in by ourselves and the learners – the most qualitative data comes direct from the employer – we ask them too!

Inform curriculum

The data that is fed back to CONNECT can be easily seen.

One price, one product, one school, everybody wins

We have learned over the years that if you limit the availability of systems, that everyone doesn’t have “buy in”. With the importance of placements becoming more and more relevant it makes sense that every member of your organisation has access to a student’s vocational progression.

Here at Changing Education we have a belief in transparent pricing with no hidden costs.
