Student Progression

Student progression remains a risk area for institutions. A learner dropping out impacts the bottom line: funding is directly lost or even clawed back, the recruitment overhead is wasted, and the reputational damage makes recruiting from the same pool harder next time. But when at-risk populations succeed, a virtuous circle of confidence builds in the institution, the student, and the marketplace.

Addressing student progression

Once the challenge is understood ways to deliver the appropriate remedy are not always clear. How do you offer a more collaborative flexible curriculum for instance? It is likely to require a joined up response across different areas of the institution, and use assessment and feedback to monitor progress.
