The disruption to normal college activities during the ongoing restrictions has made it really hard for Marketing Teams to engage with potential students. This is causing a good deal of anxiety, with many colleges reporting applications down on previous years, and with genuine uncertainty as to how many people are going to be coming through their doors in September.

How the Career Coach Suite can help your college.
For over 10 years, Career Coach has helped dozens of colleges inspire thousands of prospective students to enrol, by linking local employment data to their curriculum and course areas, so that they can promote their college online as a route to employment success. The original Career Coach Portal has been used by colleges across the country to show prospective learners how the course they are considering can lead them to in-demand jobs, and also to help existing students understand the opportunities that await them after they complete their studies. In recent years, the Career Coach API has been used by those colleges that want to take the marketing of their courses even further, giving them the ability to seamlessly integrate localised data on jobs, salaries and related careers throughout their website.
In addition to these two options, we have now added a third tool to the Career Coach Suite — Career Coach Plugin. This enables you to create customised web plugins in a matter of minutes, showcasing the link between local employment opportunities and your course areas. These can then be embeded across your website and Virtual Learning Environment.
If your college is looking for an innovative way to inspire people to enrol, the Career Coach Suite therefore offers your college the following possibilities:
