Virtual Placements Update

Due to the pandemic there has been a huge increase in Virtual Work Experiences. It is quite likely that some employers will offer only virtual placements in the long term future. So schools will probably have to manage a mix of both real and virtual placements.

The Cognito Forms system is ideally suited to manage this scenario. The system can easily be set up to process both conventional and virtual placements. The work experience coordinator can oversee and control all placements from any internet connected computer.
