Understanding the changing landscape​

There are three significant shifts that are taking place in the learning landscape. We characterise them as follows:

01

The shift from staged learning in younger years to lifelong learning. Education seekers of the future are all ages, and will engage in learning activities throughout their lives.

02

The shift from a knowledge-first model to skills-first model. Practical skills development will be the foundation to education in the future, taking over from theory.

03

The shift from a focus on studies to a focus on career pursuits. Younger generations will increasingly concern themselves with their greater career goals than any formal discipline.

The Problems

There are 2 significant problems in education that we care about…

Problem #1

Youth are blind to their post-school options

Students have no exposure to their tertiary study (and work) options, unaware of the commitment needed to get through tertiary programmes and are setting themselves up for failure all too often by registering for programmes that just don’t suit them.

Teachers don’t know how to advise their learners

Learners don’t know what they want to do, where they want to go and how they’re going to get there, and have no medium through which to explore these questions

Institutions can’t reach the right learner audiences, unable to disseminate information

Parents have a very limited understanding of new age career paths and the future of work

Problem #2

The world of tertiary funding is disjointed

Links between funders and prospective students are weak at best, with funders unable to even find suitable students to fund, oversight of beneficiaries is all but nonexistent and fund management is fragmented and stale.

Funders can’t find talent, yet students can’t find funders to fund their studies

Throughput rates are low in developing economies, and degrees of success are limited in developed ones

Flow of bursary and financial aid funds is uncontrolled, with merchants, institutions, bursars and students all operating independently of each other

Throughput rates are low in developing economies, and degrees of success are limited in developed ones
