Thereza Bandouna, Head of International Operations at Manchester Metropolitan University said:

“I am hoping you can convey a special thank you to our colleagues in Skills Forge. The University was able to evidence points of contact for our Tier 4 PhD students. The Home Office were happy with the evidence provided via skills forge and did not have any further questions. This assisted the team with smooth audit and positive outcome.”

Alun Kirby at the University of York said:

“We built a complete reporting system for Postgraduate Research Student supervision from scratch in Skillsforge, integrating it with our existing Student Records System. This has facilitated paperless reporting across the institution, reduced administrative workloads, and now provides fantastic oversight of supervision at departmental and institutional level. The Skillsforge team have been outstanding in their approach; consulting, developing, testing and deploying were as smooth as we could have hoped. Their input was always punctual, professional, proactive and extremely productive. Since rollout the support from Skillsforge continues to be exceptional, and this has helped us immensely with uptake of the new system.”

Paul Wright from Manchester Metropolitan University said:

“…….we’ve had specific praise for the course booking system from our students. They love the simplicity and the fact that it’s online and we have had classes at full capacity and indeed on waiting lists, which is excellent this early in the year. We’ve had such a good response we have visiting students and internal staff who are neither students or supervisors expressing a wish to attend courses…….”

“…..we can definitely see how the system is, and will continue to be, very beneficial when the whole thing is live and working. I’m impressed with the amount of work involved in both the development and support…..”

 The judges at the Educate North & UK Leadership Awards 2017 said:

“The judges felt that SkillsForge was a leader in this sector. The innovative idea and the way it is executed is truly remarkable.”
