Supporting you as your students return to work experience

Greetings from the Changing Education Team,

I hope you are well and surviving the tidal wave of work that is hitting every educator I know right now! If the return to onsite learning, mass testing, and new exam framework weren’t enough to keep you occupied, external work placements are also on the agenda.

The post-pandemic world is going to be even more difficult for students to leave education, and work experience will be a valuable tool in their journey into further education and the workplace. So, I hope it’ll take some weight from your shoulders to know that I can offer all the work experience support you need.

My company, The Changing Education Group, has been bringing employers, educators, and students together for twelve years. Over that time, we have created half a million work placements. We offer personal advice and support and have also created CONNECT software for staff and a mobile app for students, linked to your reporting dashboard, to take all the strain for you. In fact, a silver lining during the pandemic has been the addition of virtual work experience programmes that meet all the Ofsted and Gatsby requirements and are particularly helpful for students who cannot travel far and those with behavioural and educational difficulties.

We can get your work experience programme up and running, provide guidance on Ofsted, Gatsby, and Compass+ integration, risk management, and employer engagement while tracking and reporting on everything you and your students need.

We have recently published some thought pieces on work experience and wider careers provision as part of our thought leader series which can be found here and here, and I’ll be in touch shortly with an invitation to a best practice webinar covering everything you will need to get up-and-running (early sign-up here).

In the meantime, please do contact us at info@changingeducation.co.uk with any questions. We would really love to help your students take their first step into the workplace while saving you a huge amount of time and stress.

With kind regards,
Stephen and the Changing Education Team
