Pathways and TAFE Queensland

From the 2017 intake forwards the TAFE Queensland Schools programs will be managed using our Pathways platform. As part of the initial rollout Pathways will be used to solve a number of the core challenges of delivery TAFE qualifications for students still within a secondary school environment. This includes Pathways’ sophisticated pre-enrolment application and approval process with more than 600 schools, as well as providing schools with their own portal to manage students attending TAFE along with their attendance and progress reporting information. It’s a game changer for the TAFE at Schools Program in TAFE Queensland and aligns perfectly with Pathways’ goal read more…

Teacher Login is Live

One of the biggest requests in recent years has been to somehow provide select school teachers with read-only access to their own placements and classes, to promote more self-service of information requests and also give teachers huge vision into what’s happening with their own placements in real time. Less reports to run! Where do I find a teacher’s login username and password? Visit the school record in Pathways Cloud (from the top menu) then click on the teachers name on the right of the screen. You will see a username and password in BLUE ready for use. Where is the Teacher Login Screen? From read more…

Unique Student Identifier (USI) for VET

In 2014, all new and continuing students undertaking nationally recognised VET courses will need to hav a USI number to receive their certificate of attainment or qualification.

Attach Files to your Student Profiles

Updates to our Pathways Work Experience platform are accelerating this quarter – the latest addition is a file storage tab in the student profile that allows you to upload one or more documents to any student record. Common examples include attaching PDF copies of VET Certificates and Statements of Attainment, resumes or any other documentation that may be useful. For many clients this will save them needing to record the Units of Competency when not necessary, as the attached documents would show the detail needed.

Placement Checklists Defeat Paperwork

Student placement coordination is one of those jobs that is likely to rely on paperwork and the classic paper trail for a little while yet. There are letters to parents and hosts, agreements to sign, inductions to be done and follow surveys to be completed! The latest Pathways update includes a simple way to track all the paperwork you need for each placement. It does everything you need and nothing you don’t. A checklist of documents and steps automatically appears when you create a placement and when you tick an item it automatically dates it.

One Click Mail Merge for Workplace Learning

Workplace Learning and VET in Schools programs are often a sea of paperwork. The Mail Merge and Briefcase functions in Pathways allow quick production of documents like Placement Agreements, Student Placement Records (SPR’s) and Parent/Host Letters. Up until now you needed to know how Microsoft Word’s mail merge functions worked to build templates, however our new Cheat Sheet guides make it child’s play. Today we have launched our new starter template guides for Pathways Cloud that make it ridiculously easy to build your own mail merge and upload it in a few minutes. These new starter guides (or Cheat Sheets) read more…

Custom List Upgrades

Pathways users logging in today may notice a few enhancements that will be very handy if you run a VET in Schools program that needs to record courses and not just manage placements. Last night we included the ability to use the student’s one or more course enrolments as a filter/condition in the custom list screens. Building student and placement lists by course just got a lot easier.
