According to The Independent “Thousands of students shun universities in favour of studying for their degrees at local further education colleges”. Convenience and more one-to-one contact with lecturers is behind an 11.8 per cent rise in the number of undergraduates studying at FE Colleges. Further Education Colleges in England and TAFE Colleges in Australia provide high-quality technical and professional education and training for young people, adults and employers. They prepare over three million students with valuable skills for the workplace, helping to develop their career opportunities and strengthen the local, regional and national economy.
When selling the college experience, it is important to develop a multi-channel approach that focuses on reaching prospective students on their own terms. The continued growth of social media provides tremendous opportunities for colleges and to remind prospective students why their school is the right choice. To assist you to attract quality students who will complete their studies, MyCareerMatch has created a customised ‘social media friendly’ Career Profile that matches students with courses you offer.

The popularity of apprenticeship schemes continues to grow among talented youngsters, new data has revealed. Government figures compiled from local authority records show that in a period of just 24 months, around 15% more school leavers decided to embark on apprenticeships in England. This is good news for the economy and good news for youth unemployment.
In England, the Government has announced a new Apprenticeship levy that will apply from April 2017. This will increase demand from young people considering the apprenticeship route.
