“We all get a huge amount of emails and phone calls from companies offering data and services; usually I am very sceptical of them and ignore the majority. But I am glad that I took the call from Prospect Connect and them five minutes to tell me what they could offer.
Following the conversation I decided to engage them on a specific project – collection of student destination data, which I am sure you will agree, is not the easiest of tasks. I was impressed how cost effective, efficient and detailed the resulting report was and have now used Prospect Connect on several occasions on specific projects such as – Employer engagement and applications tracking and have never been disappointed with the results.
The information and data provided is now used at all levels within the College from the Governing body and Senior Leadership Team right through to our Curriculum, marketing and support departments.
In May 2015 the College was inspected by Ofsted and visited by BIS and in both instances we were commended on the use of robust market intelligence which Prospect Connect and our other resources provided us with. Following our Ofsted inspection the college improved from Grade 3 to Grade 2.
I believe the information that Prospect Connect provided me with certainly played a part in demonstrating the College’s ability to align our strategic priorities for improving learner outcomes’ and the College’s ability to respond to local demand by developing a curriculum that meets both the needs and interests of learners, employers and communities.
I would happily recommend their products to other colleges as I have found Prospect Connect to be effective, efficient and have never been disappointed by the services they have provided to my Directorates and the College. In short five minutes well spent and a great return on investment”.
