Challenges in Education

The Battle for Market Share

Aggressive reductions in government funding and higher unemployment rates amongst young graduates has taken a toll on the enrollment numbers of HEIs. The marketplace has also grown in both competition and complexity, with more institutions vying for the largely stagnant traditional segments.

Markets in Asia have emerged as new battlegrounds due to growing economies and the popularity of foreign degrees there. These markets are by no means new frontiers, however, as some institutions may have already established presence, if not dominance, there.

Whilst traditional channels and agents may have delivered student numbers to your satisfaction in the past, you may see enrollment figures plateau, if not decline, due to increasing competition.

Graduate Employability

Across the world today, employers are calling for schools and universities to place greater focus on preparing students for life in the workplace. Much of this is due to the gap between the quality of graduates and what employers expect of them.

In the US, only 23% of employers surveyed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) view recent graduates as well prepared in applying their knowledge and skills in real-world situations.

Similarly, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC)’s nationwide study  involving 3,500 business and education leaders in the UK revealed that 41% of respondents think that universities are not doing a good job in preparing young people for employment.  A study by Barclays in the UK also found that 25%  of small and medium businesses believe that young people were “not ready”, even for entry level jobs.

Technological Choice & Adoption

Over the past decade, there has been widespread adoption of technology in teaching and learning within classrooms. To keep up with learners who increasingly demand personalised learning, education institutions need to understand the hows and identify the wheres of technology to enjoy highest returns from their investment.

Learning devices such as tablets now allow for on-demand learning at the time and place of the learner’s choosing. Learning Management Systems, School Management Systems and other software are now utilised to distribute homework and assignments, manage calendars and schedules, track student progress and create personalised learning profiles.

Despite huge investments in the area, however, the largest concern has been the slow adoption of technology by teachers, as well as limited evidence in terms of the correlation between technology and online learning, and improved learning outcomes amongst learners.
