|King Edward VII College was established in 2010. The College is based in Melbourne CBD and offers a range of courses in management, marketing, human resources and international business. It currently has around 500 students enrolled across all of its courses. The College is very popular due to its competitive pricing structure, great teaching staff and state of the art facilities. The college has a warm and embracing culture which is collaborative in nature and a strong bond amongst its team members and this culture permeates through the business and is attractive to new staff and students alike. Due to its success, the College plans to establish two additional campuses, one in Brisbane and one in Sydney. The Brisbane campus will commence in October 2020 and Sydney in early 2020. Campus locations are already in place, with the process being overseen mainly by the CEO and Finance Manager. No staff have been employed as yet, but it is anticipated that each campus will require a receptionist, a student services officer and 4 trainers. All other staff functions will be completed by existing staff at the Sydney campus until such time as student numbers increase substantially. It is anticipated that maximum student numbers at the new campuses will be up to 50 students per campus. The College currently employs 24 staff members. Positions can be seen by viewing the company’s organisational chart. There have been recent discussions around setting up completely online courses, looking into virtual classrooms, webinars and online cloud-based assessment systems to move the college away from paper-based filing systems for the new campuses. Ideas that came out of a recent management meeting include questions about whether the college should investigate web chats for student learning support. You have been recently employed as Learning & Development Assistant Manager. Your role is to support the Learning & Development Manager. As a first task in this role, you have been asked to review the Strategic and Operational Plan, in aims to identify potential opportunities to innovate the learning systems to lead and support the college in its quest to be innovative. Your review must identify new and innovative ways that the college can deliver, store and manages it’s learning programs, including the student assessment methods to align with the strategic direction of the business. |
Background information: The Australian Government has released a plan for Australia to thrive in the future workforce. The plan has identified one of the goal pillars is for Australia’s education system to adapt the changing nature of work and the associated changes required to skills. Under this goal, the government has identified that Australia’s Vocational Education and Training System (VET) can be responsive to the priorities presented by innovation. King Edward VII College aims to be one of the leading VET providers who responds to the changing workplace by leading by example and adopting innovative business systems in the college that can adapt with time. The college currently believes the best way to do this is to: · Innovate the way the college manages the on and offline learning experience for their learners through an improved learning management system (LMS) · Innovate and update the information management system/s including the LMS. · Implement a support system for staff to embrace and foster innovation in the workplace The strengthening of learning management system is a strategic priority for the college because of its relevance to both improving learning outcomes and ensuring effective and efficient education systems that align and respond to the needs of the future workforce. All workstations currently have Windows 7 and Office 2010 installed on all computers. The network operates using Windows Server 2008 (R2). PCs are all approximately 6 years old. There is no cloud system in place and staff and learners of the RTO can only access data at work through the colleges on campus computers. A number of training staff are expected to increasingly work in multiple locations due to the establishment of the new campuses. The CEO is in discussions with the HR department around flexible working arrangement strategies and policies to improve staff retention and demonstrate to their staff that they live their values. The CEO believes with the introduction of online and blended learning, trainers could work from home to mark assessments and even deliver training. To stay competitive the CEO would also like to offer online courses enabling courses to be delivered anywhere and in any country with internet access.
