Why would I use MIPs Online?

There are many benefits when using MIPs Online:

Identification of at risk students:Through the collection of responses from students, MIPs Online identifies students potentially at risk of not making successful transitions. The reporting area will provide you with a list of students who can be targeted for additional support from Year 7 onwards.

Managed Individual Pathways: State Schools will find implementing Managed Individual Pathways is made easier. Our clients access every students Career Action Plan through the administration portal and the Career or Leadership Teams can use the system to make case notes shared with other administrators and can use the tool as a foundation for career conversations with students.

The collection of information assists school staff to understand the diverse needs of the student population and drives appropriate and relevant career and pathways program provision.

Transition planning: MIPs Online careers action plans can be used within the school in ways that lead students to access, value and identify with their plans. As students make plans for the future year they record this information in their plan and the school can draw a report from their responses. It will assist you to ensure students are purposefully interviewed and supported.

It is common for students to loose their paper based plans however with MIPs Online students can retain their plan when they leave or transfer to another school.

Collaborative process for system upgrades: Our clients are invited to an annual consultation in the middle of Term 4 each year where we discuss your feedback and suggestions to improve the system.

Preparing students for the online world: with the prevalence of online networking young people will be required to develop a professional online profile in order to be competitive in the job market. Professional e-profiles will not only function to network with others, it will be the first impression an employer will have of a prospective candidate. MIPs helps students distinguish between a social networking profile and a professional networking profile. MIPs Online is a great introduction to these spaces.
