IAMSE – Cyber Essential Certification

We are delighted to share with you that we have successfully secured the IAMSE Certification.

Why is this important? 
  • Peace of mind that all our GDPR, Data protection, and Privacy processes, policies, and procedures have been benchmarked thoroughly and met the rigors of a full audit. 
  • Reassure customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attacks.
  • Give a clear picture of our organisation’s cybersecurity level.
  • Some contracts require Cyber Essentials certification.
The certification gives you peace of mind that our defenses will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets that do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

IASME – Cyber Essential

We are Partnering with Skills Builder

Why partner with skills builder?

The Partnership brings together more than 700 organisations towards a common mission, joined by shared language, principles, and outcomes. The partnership will enable CONNECT’s student assessment functionality to link directly with the Skills Builder Universal Framework and Educators Toolkit, which breaks each essential skill down into teachable, learnable steps. 

These are the skills young people need to succeed in education and beyond into employment. Working with the Skills Builder Partnership supports all students to take ownership of their essential skill development and articulate their strengths.

The Skills Builder Framework

The next Webinar is on 02.03.2021

Why should I attend?

This week we will be focusing on pre-placement work personality screening and smart targets. This functionality enables students to self-analyse work, life, and social skills before commencing placement and offers staff tools to access and task students with specific targets to complete whilst on placement. The student can re-evaluate their skills to show progression via the Student App, which the educator can report on.

Key Areas:

  1. Work Personality submission functionality
  2. Work Personality management and tracking
  3. Smart Target functionality
  4. Reporting and Data Tables

Note: This session ties in perfectly with the Skills Builder Partnership
