Importance Of Transparency In A Student Management System

The foremost attribute to look for, alongside required functionality and features, is transparency.

Don’t Let Outdated Software Hold Your Training Organisation Back

So you’re currently using legacy software, or, worse, you still don’t know that you are. If any of these scenarios apply to you, you’ve come to the right place!

While you may be completely happy with your current software, your customers may not feel the same. A Microsoft study concluded that more than 90% of consumers would consider taking their business elsewhere rather than work with a company that used outdated technology. If you’ve seen a decrease in customer retention, this may very well be one of the reasons why. Updating your software at your Training Organisation is critical to maintaining projected growth and is a necessity for your business to succeed. Not only does outdated software make customers feel uneasy, but it can have many more spiralling effects on your training organisation.

If you’ve purchased education software in the past, it may tick along for years - even decades, doing exactly what you purchased it to do, but has not changed with time to meet the demands of a modern business, so, how exactly can you pinpoint when your software is outdated and when it is time to upgrade?

To help you answer this question and identify the many benefits a modern student information and management system can bring to your training organisation, we’ve provided a comparison table below.

Unfunded International Provider?  Here's What You Need To Know.

Effective April 2016, Unfunded International Providers (UIPs) in New Zealand must report data to the Ministry of Education (MoE).

The MoE UIP data collection system is an improved means of collecting education data that reduces providers’ compliance costs by replacing manual collections. 

This mandatory electronic data collection provides the MoE with data on international students participating in education in New Zealand at Unfunded Private Training Establishments (PTEs). These data sets include:

  • official name, date of birth, residency;
  • provider and component enrolment;
  • component and qualification completion.

Through the system, the Ministry performs ongoing checks to ensure the integrity of the data stored in the system. 

No more exports. No more manual submissions. No more fuss.

The MoE is right on the money here. The days of manual data collections, exports, imports, uploads, and errors are fading fast. The future is here, and it is instantaneous with live links and automation between consumers, business, and government. Ignore at your own peril!

But, why? What changes can PTEs expect from now on?
