Loughborough College have recently revealed their new look website, and one of the many superb features is a hugely innovative way of integrating our Career Coach tool. The home page, which you can find here, is a fantastic illustration of how simplicity and a non-cluttered design can be used to draw people into a website. Viewers are given a series of basic options, including applying, getting in touch, attending and searching. Each of these then brings up a series of further options. For instance, by clicking on the “search” option, you are given the option of searching for a course, for a career or the whole website. The image below shows a career search for Chartered or Certified Accountant:
Clicking on Go takes you through to a page dedicated to giving information about the career, including entry requirements, typical tasks, desired skills, job postings, salaries and job numbers. This information has been gleaned from Career Coach, but the web designers have come up with a number of novel ways to display it:
Finally, at the bottom, the career is then connected with relevant courses at the College, followed by a link which allows prospective students to apply:
Career Coach is a great way of connecting prospective students to sustainable careers through your courses. Loughborough College clearly see the value in the tool’s data, and we are thrilled to see them taking the presentation of that information to another level.
