Clear Links’ proprietary software application, Connect, provides assistance with the administrative functions of running your support worker service, while other areas of support delivery remain under your direction and control.
What is Connect?
Connect is the software that Clear Links has designed and built in-house to be the best solution for HEPs not wishing to outsource their provision.
- Intelligent matching identifies suitable support workers for each student, for both timetabled sessions and flexible 1 to 1 support.
- Management data available to HEI staff 24/7 with the ability to monitor each student’s projected and live spend.
- Online timesheets allow support workers to claim their sessions and students to confirm the bookings.
What are the Agency Options?
Clear Links will recruit and select support workers to your criteria, take up references and check eligibility to work and qualifications. We use online systems and face to face meetings.
Clear Links can train your support workers using our eLearning packages or you can choose to commission bespoke online or face to face courses.
We can administer your support worker payroll or provide you with the data to run payroll through your own systems.
Clear Links can invoice funders on your behalf using a timescale of your choice.
