Challenges facing the market
With a government review of funding underway, the future is uncertain for all those involved in the delivery of further and higher education.
Increasing student numbers to make up for a funding shortfall may no longer be viable and immigration barriers have made it harder to recruit students internationally. With our ear to the ground on all aspects of education law and regulation, our team can help you to minimise the impact of challenges and make the most of opportunities, supporting you through strategic changes on the way to a more sustainable future.
Increased competition is driving universities and FE colleges to look for ways to reduce costs and stand out from the crowd.
Managing resources with care by divesting assets you don’t need and investing in those you do, and building the capacity and capability of your leadership team and workforce, are vital to your future. The connections you make with businesses and others in the community – to strengthen course offerings and create improved pathways to employment – will bring benefits for you and your students. By working with you at every stage, we can help you to create a more sustainable delivery model whilst improving outcomes for students.
At a time when governments around the world are pulling back from global cooperation, you have the opportunity to step into this space.
Building fruitful partnerships, cultural exchange networks and promoting your vision for internationalisation is where the future lies. Understanding the local laws and regulations can help you make the most of this opportunity and access to our specialists will ensure that compliance and good governance is always protected.
