EMSI is pleased to be once again exhibiting at the Association of Colleges (AoC) Annual Conference, being held in Birmingham this November.
EMSI is already supporting more than 20 leading colleges in the UK, in addition to hundreds in the US. Colleges use EMSI tools to explore unique labour market data to better understand historic, current and future employment trends for their local area.
Analyst allows colleges to explore detailed labour market information, which feeds into cycles such as SAR, business planning and QIPs to ensure the college meets its key objective of delivering courses that reflect the specific needs of the local economy. This easy-to-use web-based solution is also used for bid writing, employer engagement and marketing.
Career Coach links a college’s courses to local employment information including earnings, employment trends and live local job vacancies. This tool, linked directly into the college’s main website, is used to promote college courses to the community based on robust local labour market intelligence. Current college students use Career Coach to explore opportunities to progress into further study or employment based on current and future employment opportunity.
EMSI is also very pleased to announce the launch of our new Economic Impact Study (EIS) at the conference, a refresh of the Socio-Economic Impact Model (SEIM) originally launched in 2008 and delivered to more than 80 colleges in the UK and thousands worldwide.
The EIS explores the socio-economic value of the college to the community it serves. This is achieved both in terms of the income the college generates from government and private tuition fees, but also the financial contribution of the education being delivered at the college through increases in taxation income and reductions in spending on key public services. An EIS is a must-have to support OFSTED inspection and self-assessment, marketing, bid writing and wider stakeholder engagement. The study is updated to include latest economic theory and reflects changes in the focus of UK Further Education colleges from the original studies delivered four years ago.
