BASINGSTOKE, England, November 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
INTUITION has become the must-have student services management tool with six colleges implementing the web-based solution over the past few months.
INTUITION enables student services teams to collect robust intelligence about the learners they engage with, to efficiently track and manage interventions and actions, and to respond effectively to student requirements. "We recognise the need to continue to improve the effectiveness of our services to support all of our students. Although we have worked hard in building an evidence base over the years, INTUITION provides us with a centralised source of information to truly join up our activities with students right across the college." Lesley Ferguson, Director of Student Services, Bedford College.
As colleges face yet another challenge with the end of the Education Maintenance Allowance and the introduction of the 16 -18 Bursary, INTUITION is also being used to manage the distribution of this fund, helping to ensure that support reaches the most vulnerable students. INTUITION manages bursary fund distribution by:
- Tracking and assessing student applications
- Controlling budget expenditure
- Evaluating the impact of funding on individuals
- Collecting the information which may be needed by the YPLA
- Highlighting the most vulnerable students
Student outcomes have become the focus of all colleges as the Government moves toward funding which is dependent on the number of students entering into employment after leaving further education. Ensuring that students have been fully supported throughout their further education experience means that an improvement in the way that information is collected, reported and shared has become business critical for most colleges.
Developed in partnership with the National Association for Managers of Student Services (NAMSS), INTUITION is a single solution for the management of Student Services. "NAMSS is proud to work in partnership with ACTIVE to produce INTUITION which has the potential to revolutionise impact assessment across the sector." Jim Busher, NAMSS Vice-Chair.
