Pathways has a long history of providing the operational backbone for community service organisations tasked with coordinating placements for a group of schools. Since the mid 1990's Pathways has had a dedicated development track focussed on assisting these organisations with managing the many stakeholders and sea of information needed to place thousands of students with hosts for hundreds of teachers in schools.

School Cluster management is a very unique challenge - many of Pathways' foundation innovations have been nurtured and piloted by placement brokers and coordinators, as their large volume and very real resource constraints push everyone to find the most effective, efficient process.

Pathways is responsible for the majority of mandatory student work placements in New South Wales each year, and is utilised at all the clusters currently operating in Queensland. Pathways is also used by the 31 Local Learning and Employment Network regions in Victoria as part of their state-wise SWL Portal rollout of Pathways.

Some of Pathways key innovations for School Clusters include:

  • Student on-line self-registration

  • Teacher Portal allowing teachers to triage and approve registrations, track placements

  • Bulk email merges to hosts, students, parents and teachers for a class

  • Bulk SMS merges to hosts, students, parents and teachers for a class

  • Sophisticated Host profiling and CRM tools

  • The Placement Postcard - a mobile-friendly placement reference that has replaced most of the paperwork needed for communicating placement details

  • Tableau-driven Business Intel and Data Analytics to spot trends early and plan for the future

  • Host Usage reporting to see where opportunities exist for your existing Host Employers

  • Industry leading security and performance from our Australian Data Centre.
