Introduction

Over the past year, further education colleges in the UK have found themselves performing a delicate balancing act.

Some of the key questions that colleges have been asking themselves are:

  • How can we balance delivering a quality provision with financial viability?
  • Where can we cut costs without impacting on our course offering?
  • Are we achieving maximum value for money from all our existing resources?

“Our challenge is surviving and succeeding with less money, while still providing the excellent service expected of us and maintaining outstanding Ofsted inspections. The only way we can do this is by putting our internal processes under constant review.”

Julia Goldsmith, Walsall College

Improved Student Management

Recruitment Process

“Colleges need to ask themselves if they are getting value for money for every resource they have, not just facilities and IT but in terms of how we manage students too.” Julia Goldsmith, Walsall College

  • Colleges offering online applications report increased recruitment success, particularly if applicants can also pay online.
  • Online management can be carried on throughout the student’s life cycle, saving time and improving communication.
  • Once students have finished a course, they should be seen as the potential market for next year’s courses and retargeted with options to further their learning.

Colleges should aim to recruit learners once and use them many times. With the increase of tuition fees in higher education, learners will be attracted to a lower debt burden by undertaking HE courses at FE institutions”

Rob Elliott, Capita

Student Retention

“We want to treat each student as an individual, and communicating personally and directly with them enables us to do so. Effective internal communication must be targeted, and technology helps us with this.”

Alex Richards, TottonCollege

  • Each drop-out can represent between £5,000 - £10,000 of lost funding.
  • Some colleges drop-out rates still remain as high as 20 per cent. The financial cost soon stacks up – for a college with 1000 students this could translate into lost funding of £1 million very easily.
  • Through use of MIS to monitor, inform and engage, anecdotal evidence from colleges is that drop-out rates can be reduced to just 1 or 2 per cent.

“After staff, the recruitment of a learner is the highest cost. It’s no coincidence that colleges with higher success rates in retention make a better financial return, regardless of size..”

Rob Elliott, Capita

Streamlining Management and Administration

Are your ICT and MI systems as slick and efficient as they could be?

Some of the key actions that can be taken:

  • Data systems audit – review at the highest level, be comprehensive including spreadsheets.
  • Integration – seek out islands of data which risk inconsistencies and inefficiencies.
  • Rationalisation - enter the data once and use many times must become the mantra.

“When all the necessary information is held in a single integrated system, a complicated and previously lengthy returns process can be completed in just one click.”

Alex Richards , Totton College

Self service - paper free systems

  • Using simplified e-forms rather than paper versions saved Walsall time by storing data once but using it many times. In 2009/2010 conservative estimates saw a £10,000 saving.
  • Totton College central admissions team saved hundreds of hours usually spent copying and manually sorting & distributing student application documents.
  • Walsall’s HR system is online and can manage staff appraisals, monitor mandatorytraining and see at a glance who is on holiday and when. Saving in excess of £15,000between 2008/09 and 2009/10.

“We have a simple rule – people should never be asked twice for the same information. A single core database means no time wasted, no duplicate copies and no misspelling of names. Having easily accessible, accurate data plays a significant part in keeping colleges efficient.”

Conclusions

Findings from the White Paper

  • Use of staff and facilities more efficiently could result in an average saving of £750,000.

“In assessing 18 colleges, we’ve found potential savings in excess of £21 million. In one college the savings were as high as £3.5 million and most averaged around £750,000. The area where the biggest savings could be made by far was staff utilisation.”

John Bolt , KPMG

“AoC Shared Services Awareness Seminar (July 2010) the outlook was even more positive, as the Shared Services Architects organisation reported that savings of between 20-40 per cent could be achieved by colleges coming together..”

  • Maximising income £500,000.

“Maximising funding isn’t about earning more for doing what you are already doing, it’s about doing things more efficiently. The first place you could look to maximise funding is class size. The average class size is far too small. Adding one student per class costs you virtually nothing, but can bring in an average of £5000 per student. With 100 classes, that’s an extra £500,000.”

Nick Linford, Lsect
