Ways To Grow Enrolments As An Education Provider

We have put together some inventive ways to grow enrolments as an education provider.

The vast majority of the world has been in lockdown for over 18 months since combating Covid-19, and Education Providers globally continue to be impacted. Many have been left with no alternative but to close their campuses, and move classes online to protect students through preventative measures such as quarantining. Furthermore, the level in unemployment and underemployment forced many to leave the college pipeline. Due to unprecedented times, the world of education has had to quickly adapt, and while most have successfully adjusted, one very important component remains affected - enrolments.

Education Providers across the globe have experienced a decrease in enrolments, particularly in the past 18 months. Parallel to this decrease, Education Providers are faced with growing competition, and must swiftly adapt to utilising futuristic tools and features to increase enrolments in an increasingly competitive environment and in the midst of a global pandemic.

Find out how you can increase enrolments at your Education Provider, using the simple methods listed below.

Don’t Let Outdated Software Hold Your Training Organisation Back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more than 90% of consumers would consider taking their business elsewhere rather than work with a company that used outdated technology.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 Not only does outdated software make customers feel uneasy, but it can have many more spiralling effects on your training organisation.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not changed with time to meet the demands of a modern business, so, how exactly can you pinpoint when your software is outdated and when it is time to upgrade?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.

In other words, to make money in business, you need to invest in human resources, products, software, or supplies. But, this does not mean that you can’t be smart about it.

JobTrainer: 6 Tips for Your Registered Training Organisation (RTO)

The Australian Prime Minister announced the Australian Government will partner with state and territory governments to establish a new $1 billion JobTrainer Skills Training Fund.

This is clearly welcome news, but what does it actually mean for registered training organisations (RTOs) and their learners?

The fund will provide training places to help school leavers and job seekers access free or low-cost courses in areas of identified skills need, with the Federal Government providing $500 million with matched contributions from state and territory governments.  Let's hope everyone is on board!

To inform the identification of courses, the National Skills Commission (NSC) will create an indicative list of qualifications based on its own research, analysis and consultation with stakeholder organisations. This list will help inform discussions with state and territory government, with those discussions to determine the qualifications and short courses to be funded via the JobTrainer Fund.

For participating state and territories - and let's hope that's everyone - it is expected that training places will be available from September 2020. Information on training places delivered under the JobTrainer Fund will be made available through the National Careers Institute on the My Skills website.

Given the rapidly changing labour market and economy, this list will be live and will be updated and refined as required, based on both data and analysis from the NSC and states and territories, and intelligence on the ground.

The key takeaway is that RTO technology platforms that are agile and adaptable will be key to accessing the opportunities that JobTrainer offers.  Strap in - it's going to be a wild ride!

Here's a few things to think about when it comes to Job Trainer:
