Simon Bone

Work Placement Manager

Our college previously used a combination of paper based systems, spreadsheets and Moodle for CDF industry placements but we didn’t have anywhere to store information in one place. Our college ethos is all about careers not courses and we needed a system and team that helped us deliver that.

The Collsys software was a system that could help us and we were incredibly pleased it wasn’t an off the shelf product, it was something we could tailor for our needs.

We trialled the Collsys software for CDF industry placements and it was great to monitor the various streams of activity. The full Work Placement team now use the system as core users and our tutors and students also use it to track work experiences. The team really listened to what we wanted and evolved the system with us and now we have a system that is really good for us – it’s fit for purpose, functional and user friendly.

The Collsys team are incredibly responsive and have come on a journey with us, we’re really pleased with the system and are looking forward to using the new careers platform to help our students in their futures.
