As the head of Higher Education at CSFC, Hayley has found BridgeU to be instrumental in streamlining the careers education programme for students. Instead of multiple spreadsheets, e-mail correspondences and shared drives, CSFC’s guidance processes are coordinated through a single platform. Staff at the school are also able to use BridgeU’s analytics to track and measure students’ engagement with the university application process.
Hayley remarks that BridgeU has been a great way to ensure that students are on track with their applications, as well as giving her an overview of students’ eventual outcomes and chosen destinations. She hopes that, with future cohorts of students, she can use the platform’s analytics to see if there is any correlation between their engagement with the platform, and the range of countries they are choosing to apply to.
CSFC’s Principal, Gareth Collier, added: “I am delighted with the way in which BridgeU have been able to provide clear and informative support for our students’ career choices, but also how the platform itself has added to the ‘Thrive’ element of our own pastoral management programme, CREATE©. Many schools will benefit from BridgeU’s expertise, but their ability to adapt to our specific needs and add further quality to our provision ensures that the career needs of our students is well served.”
