In times of great change, we are holding our free of charge, online conferences (W/C 12th October 2020) to discuss the significant issues that will help colleges and training providers become more resilient and continue to deliver quality education.
There’s little doubt that the world of skills training and work has altered dramatically over the past few months. Many training providers have managed to adapt their practices and deliver apprenticeships digitally to great success, using a variety of online tools. And as restrictions start to ease, and educators and employers alike turn their thoughts to the future, there will be a necessary re-alignment in working practice. So how do you get your Apprenticeship delivery back on track this autumn?
The events of 2020 have rapidly shaped the way the world lives, works, and learns and getting staff and students back on campus safely is the goal for universities everywhere. Never before have any of us faced such a challenge - knowing what to do if there is a positive case and dealing with it promptly and professionally.
On 14th July, due to the current pandemic, Tribal hosted the first ever Empower Online Conference. The event offered customers from the higher education sector all around the world an opportunity to gain insights into the world of education from 6 live sessions with live Q&A and opportunity for discussion, and 20 on-demand sessions, recorded in advance by Tribal employees.
When you think of education you might typically think of schools, colleges and universities. But, there’s another type of institution becoming increasingly attractive to learners - the specialist and independent providers, living somewhere in between the world of colleges and universities and experiencing their own set of challenges.
Shifting interviews with potential learners to the online environment is something lots of FE colleges are rapidly having to come to terms with, and Tribal customers have been discussing their plans and how they are using the tools in ebs OnTrack to make this process go smoothly.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, large-scale events as we once knew them are a thing of the past. We recognise this will have a major impact on university freshers week 2020, with the typical fun-loving, drink-fuelled week now overpowered by institutions striving to follow the guidelines when it comes to meeting government social distancing restrictions.
Did I hear you say Taxi?
Yes, TCSI (pronounced “taxi”), you heard that right! It stands for Transforming the Collection of Student Information (TCSI). It’s a joint project between the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) and Services Australia to transform how student information is collected to build a better solution that benefits both Australian education providers and students. The project name TCSI has also been retained as the name of the new portal in which institutions report to, however the acronym now stands for Tertiary Collection of Student Information.
COVID-19 Response Barometer
The COVID-19 Response Barometer has been borne out of necessity – the necessity for Higher Education Institutions to hear and understand the student voice during the pandemic, and the necessity to understand that student voice in the context of a global comparison. Here we look at how the survey has been received and the aspirations of those institutions that are sharing the survey with their student population.
As colleges and educational institutions across the nation try to adapt to a ‘new normal’ way of working in the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic, how will enrolment look for a new year of learning?
