Navigate Support for Colleges | Navigate

We are the market leaders in support for college Work-Related Learning programmes, with providers across the country trusting our products and services.

Our programme of support for colleges ensures that Study Programme learners develop essential employability skills and evidence meaningful work placements, whilst providing senior leaders with vital data to measure the impact of work-related activity.


Trusted by colleges across the country, Navigate supports the assessment, development and tracking of Work-Related Learning. The platform:

  • Assesses employability skills: An engaging self-assessment provides each learner with their unique starting point, and captures employability skills ‘distance travelled’.
  • Develops employability skills: The platform provides opportunities for learners to build their skills through online learning content and evidences their development through ‘real world’ experiences.
  • Supports work experience: An online journal enables learners to document their activity whilst on work experience and receive valuable feedback from employers.
  • Evidences learner progress: Managers can draw on rich evidence to demonstrate that their learners are developing essential employability skills and participating in meaningful work experience.

Our on-site audit covers all areas required for an ‘outstanding work-related provision’. The audit is based on a framework which has been developed from our work with over 500 schools and colleges, covering 5 key themes:

  1. Strategy: For work-related learning, including written plans and KPIs.
  2. Employer Engagement: The employers and community organisations that support your programme.
  3. Learner Activity: The in-class and extra-curricular learning that your learners participate in to develop their work skills.
  4. Work Experience: The real-world experiences your learners have of the workplace. This can include placements, work shadowing and insight days.
  5. Evaluation: Measuring the impact of your provision and presenting data to Ofsted.

During the audit, we will speak to all key stakeholders before presenting a full report and action plan to support the development of outstanding Work-Related Learning in your college.
