How can further education colleges quantify their financial value in the communities that they serve? EMSI has teamed up with three leading colleges to run a series of seminars that will explore innovative approaches to answering this question. Understanding their financial value is important for colleges in their roles both as businesses and as socially valuable enterprises.
Government policy and OFSTED inspection are requiring colleges to become more responsive and accountable to the communities they serve. In this climate, it is crucial for colleges to evaluate the significant impact they have. In the upcoming seminars, EMSI’s expert consultants from the US and UK will explore a service specifically designed to help colleges achieve this: the Economic Impact Study.
Alongside this overview, The Bournemouth and Poole College, South Staffordshire College and Middlesbrough College will explore the key findings from their recent studies. They will also discuss how these studies are fuelling a range of activities to help promote learning at the respective colleges, drive new business, engage with key local stakeholders, and provide key evidence to underpin performance and quality activities.
Attendance at the seminars is free. They will be run across the country during the week commencing 15th April:
- 15th April 2013 (am): The Bournemouth and Poole College
- 16th April 2013 (am): South Staffordshire College
- 19th April 2013 (pm): Middlesbrough College
