To create a site which would meet the local authority’s obligation to provide an impartial resource detailing the opportunities available to post 16 learners within the Doncaster area.

    The site would need to have a searchable list of all providers within the Doncaster area as well as a list of courses available. This resource would provider learners with an unbiased view of the opportunities available to them post 16.

    The site also needed to be easy to manage from an admin prospective, providers would need to manage their own pages and provision so a log in system would be required to manage this process and ease the admin requirements on the local authority.

    How we did it

    We already had a great product which incorporated this provider and course search functionality, however the product also included CAP which Doncaster MBC didn’t need, we worked to produce the listing and search functionality as a standalone product and our eProspectus was born. We used the providers upload portal that already existed on the combined eProspectus and CAP system to manage the listings and then gave the site a colourful, learner friendly design. 

    The Results

    The site has been a great success with providers within the Doncaster area being able to access the site and upload their data and courses, and learners being able to search for courses across the whole region.
