Get Involved

We have really enjoyed hearing directly from you our valued clients, via the regular communications and best-practice sessions.

A big part of what makes CONNECT a unique proposition is the communication we have with yourselves, leading college groups up and down the U.K. Our ambition to bridge the gap between Careers and Work-Based learning is well underway and we are hard at work on our mission to be the complete all-through solution. 

Following the successful launch of our Phase 1 developments on the employer engagement CRM and placement opportunity tracker. Our next phase in this journey is the Business Development Integration which is consists of  Apprenticeship, Traineeship, Internship and Commercial integration.

Our key investment areas for 2021 can be identified as follows:

  • Business Development CRM.
  • Employer Engagement CRM Phase 2 Development.
  • Careers and Work-Related Learning CRM Phase 2 Development.
We have assembled a team of leading staff members from across the college groups and apprenticeship providers to ensure the above developments are aligned to your needs. If you would like to get involved then please get in touch. 

Join the working group


Our developers regularly review your queries and valued feedback via the Connect support inbox. We are noticing a series of trends: 

  • Can’t Log-in “user not recognised”
  • Forgotten Password
  • Create New Staff
  • Strange Screens when using Internet Explorer.

To make things even easier for you, we have come up with a handy guidance sheet. please click below to find out more.
