Navigate – the leading Work-Related Learning platform – is trusted by colleges throughout the UK to track, manage and evidence work placement, enrichment and employer engagement activity.

How Navigate can help you

Navigate supports learners to:

  • Manage work placements: prepare for, evidence and reflect on work experience and Industry Placement activity.

  • Record non-academic activities: enrichment, tutorial, employer engagement and wider employability skills activity.

  • Assess progress: capturing learner employability skills progress through engaging psychometric assessments.

Navigate supports college staff to:

  • Manage placement programmes: fully automated placement management, stakeholder emails and intelligent ‘to do’ displays.

  • Be more efficient: saves, on average, 1.5 hours of administration time per placement and removes the need for multiple sources of data and paper-heavy processes.

  • Capture data: full reporting suite and secure two-way feeds between Navigate and college systems ensure crucial data is available on-demand.
