The study programmes

We have a framework that facilitates the delivery of study programmes. All you have to do is turn it on!

The Vivo platform provides opportunities to discover high quality work experience and added-value non-qualification activity. An ideal way to develop core competencies as part of your college’s efforts to deliver study programmes, including:

  • Employability
  • Reflective thinking
  • Problem solving
  • Independent inquiry
  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Taking responsibility


Use Vivo to meet key Ofsted requirements. We even provide the data and tools to evidence your college’s excellence.

Vivo helps develop curiosity and a love for learning, with a focus on fostering an interest in spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues. We give students a platform to seek out a wide range of perspectives and deeper knowledge.

Careers guidance, apprenticeships and employability

Vivo inspires learners to develop the behaviours and attitudes they need to be successful in the future. Students can develop employability skills, build out a professional profile and gain access to tens of thousands of live apprenticeship and volunteering opportunities.


As students use Vivo, they build up a professional profile - a digital record of their achievements, character, employability and vocational skills.

Fully customisable with digital badges, skills, character attributes, work experience, endorsements and references, the Vivo profile is ready-at-hand to share with the world.

Designed to showcase the excellence of one’s whole person, it’s the personal statement of the future.

The Vivo Library

The Vivo Library is a connected learning ecosystem that extends beyond mainstream learning. Students can craft their own learning pathways at their own pace, based on their individual interests and learning styles.

Content is published in bite-size chunks (Vivos) or packaged within a micro-course structure as Vivo Decks. You can align the content surfaced to your students with certified frameworks (Ofsted, study programmes etc.)

Students can discover opportunities relevant to them, such as apprenticeships, work experience and volunteering. They can gain valuable insight into the different careers and employers out there, and take the first steps towards the world of work by acquiring essential vocational and employability skills. With added focus on character-building, students can develop the personal and life skills needed to become confident, well-rounded individuals.

Engagement and rewards

Vivo’s gamification technology (digital badges, points and challenges) is available to boost student engagement. There are a wide range of prizes available too, providing initiatives of intrinsic and extrinsic value. Challenges can be set to motivate individuals and groups, such as “Most Improved” and “Team Target”.

Vivo fosters positive attitudes to learning, instilling a sense of fun and pride in what students achieve at college.

The Recommendation Engine

Vivo’s Recommendation Engine guides students on personal learning journeys. By mapping and tracking student activity and encouraging self-reflection, the platform learns about an individual’s interests, passions and aspirations. It then surfaces content and suggests opportunities to support this. For instance, it recommends suitable careers guidance and connects students to local businesses offering relevant work experience.

The Vivo Network

The Vivo Network can boost a college’s recruitment and retention. Reinforce links with local schools and their students to showcase the full range of courses available. Strengthen existing relationships with employers and develop new ones.

Vivo allows colleges to collaborate and network with other organisations like charities, councils and other stakeholders. We connect students to the wider community to help them find relevant work experience, apprenticeships, volunteering, youth projects etc. Cement your position in the community as a hub for local people.

Colleges can build an online community around their core values, so that everyone is working towards the same goals and ethos. It’s fun, inclusive and adds to the feeling of pride in the college. A great source of inspiration for students who can see all the amazing things going on at college and in the local area.

An excellent communication tool, the Vivo Network can engage parents and all key stakeholders in a student’s development. A great way to keep informed on attendance, progress and achievement, but also to offer support, guidance and inspiration.


Vivo’s powerful analytics provide a wealth of data for tracking engagement and achievement. This is great for evidencing outcomes and generating reports for Ofsted and SLT.

It also gives colleges the ability to follow student trends and activity. Find out what inspires your students: their interests, goals and aspirations. It makes it easy to tailor study programmes for individuals, to understand what works and why something doesn’t.
