The NETpositive Student Engagement Software

The University of Northampton is using our NETpositive Software as part of its Changemaker programme.

Their Life Hack tool enables students to explore the opportunities offered by the programme and the wider Changemaker Campus and community. As well as supporting their personal and professional development as part of the employability agenda it helps them demonstrate how they can make a positive contribution to society.

The NETpositive Software enables an institution to deliver student engagement with a focus on sustainability in their own specific context. Their students will have the opportunity to generate their own, bespoke Sustainability Action Plan. We work with institutions to ensure content is specific to their particular University context.

The Provider Institution is able to interrogate the data that is generated to understand not only how their students across the university are making progress in relation to sustainability but also to better understand their needs.

We work with a University Provider to:

  • create content that is entirely fit for their institution
  • plan a roll-out that engages as many students as possible
  • communicate the value of the tool to their staff and students
  • ensure they can appropriately support their student users along the way
  • ensure they have access to data that captures they can use for reporting
  • help them understand the importance of evidence-based engagement

A Student User can:

  • create a log-in to access the tool created for their university
  • use the tool content to auto generate a Sustainability Action plan
  • use the plan to outline their contributions to university objectives
  • evidence progress they can use as the basis for a cv or personal development plan
  • Bespoke content means it will align with your university priorities
  • Provides a clear demonstration of leadership in relation to student engagement and sustainability
  • Co-ordinates the range of support you offer your students through a single portal
  • Provides clear signposting to additional support your students can access (from across the institution or from external sources)
  • Captures powerful data relating to the sustainability impacts, decisions and commitments of your students
  • Creates a strong evidence base for ongoing student engagement
  • Undertake a simple sustainability analysis of their personal impacts
  • Create a bespoke action plan to help them become a more sustainable student
  • Be signposted to institutionally-relevant information, events and activities that will support their sustainability journey
  • Demonstrate progress against their individual action plans
  • Enhance their employability by increasing their sustainability literacy
