Burton and South Derbyshire College have recently released their 2015/2016 prospectus and one of the things that immediately jumps out at the reader is its impressive use of data and survey infographics. This is a great recognition of the power of numbers — presented in innovative and eye-catching ways — to tell a story and to give those thinking of coming to the College many compelling reasons to do so.
Amongst the data used, the College have taken labour market information from Analyst and Career Coach, incorporating it throughout the prospectus in every area of learning, to give people a good grasp of job numbers, job trends and earnings in careers associated with courses the College provides.
This is one of the best uses of our data to promote the College that we’ve seen, and we hope it inspires other colleges to do something similar. Below are some examples we have lifted from the brochure, and if you want to have a look at the brochure itself, it can be accessed here.
