Retention of college tutors is a challenge that has faced the UK further education sector for a long time, not helped by the reduction in funding that colleges have contended with for a number of years. In fact, despite the 6.5% increase in student numbers, Sixth Form Colleges have reduced the number of staff by 11% since 2010/11. The reduction in the teaching workforce has resulted in a 28% increase in the average learner-to-teaching staff ratio across the sector, and therefore the workloads of each member of staff. Yet, with increasing pressures on the sector to meet targets and excel performance, something needs to change.
Jacob Kemp, Head of Direct Sales, Dynistics, outlines three key reasons that all education establishments need a strategic view of their data throughout the entire academic year in order to get the grades they need to impress the regulators and set their students up to succeed:
The primary focus of any educational institution is to do just that: to educate. The education sector is filled with data, from exam results, to staff performance, and there is a lot at stake; it’s not just about ensuring students can achieve to the best of their ability, but it’s also about meeting Ofsted and other regulatory requirements, which in turn has an impact on funding, recruitment and enrolling future students.
