Highlands College's mission is to meet the further and higher education needs of the people of Jersey. With the working aim to provide a high-quality 21st-century learning environment that will enable students to develop the know-how and wherewithal to live economically, socially, and personally fulfilling lives. Highlands offer high-level technical and vocational courses for young people qualified to progress to advanced level learning. As a comprehensive college, they also provide further general education courses for school leavers to develop the skills and attributes required for future progression.
In late 2020, via the Government of Jersey, the College requested tenders for a Student Records System solution, stating the essential requirements for the College were a fully integrated solution that introduced efficiencies throughout the College and production of accurate and informative Management Information reports.
It was also a high priority to have modern, intuitive interfaces for staff and students, including a mobile app. Further, the supplier needed to have a history of, and plans for, innovation in their development. To follow the Government directive of moving towards cloud-based solutions, it became clear during the procurement process that the College preferred a resilient cloud solution over on-premises hosting.
Tribal are delighted to have been selected to develop an end-to-end cloud solution for the College, starting with their student applications and taking them through to completion and beyond. This solution has now been refined with the College and the implementation has begun.
The breadth and flexibility of Tribal's solution, ebs, means that Tribal can cover all the College's priorities and provide integrations with other key systems at the College, such as finance, to create automated, efficient processes. Central to the solution is the student and staff interfaces, which centre around the College's app.
"Highlands College and the Government of Jersey have a challenging list of requirements for our new student management solution. Tribal has shown us that they have the products and skills to help us achieve our goals. We have great confidence in the project."
