Diplomas and Apprenticeships Will be a Major Factor in Emerging from the Recession According to Perspective

14-19 Education Is Key In Building For The Future

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2009) - The success of the 14-19 diploma and apprenticeship schemes will be a major factor in Britain's emergence from its recessive state according to Perspective, a leading authority on distributed learning and student monitoring.

With the UK currently in recession, and unemployment levels continuing to rise, the education of the youth will be a defining factor in shaping the future of Britain as it comes out of the downturn. As more jobs become available, it will be left to skilled workers to fill those spaces. Perspective has indicated that those students who thrive on the 14-19 diploma and apprenticeships will be the ones who benefit from these future employment opportunities.

With some of the diplomas focusing on key practical work and distributed learning, the hands on experience that diploma students will possess by the end of their course will be invaluable to their respective industries. Alternatively, those companies employing apprenticeship schemes will possess a ready employee base that will be the foundations of progression after the economy regains its balance.

Jim Davis, CEO of Perspective, said: "The end product of educational courses such as apprenticeships and the 14-19 diplomas will be invaluable to the growth of business following the downturn. The value of experience will be an advantage to many students, as this will reduce the length of the training process needed for many jobs, and so industries will be able to benefit from this emerging workforce much sooner than from one less practised.

Perspective's learner management software helps educational organisations to monitor, review and report on the progress of their students.

Collaborative Learning Manager (CLM) allows institutions to measure and monitor student attendance and progress in line with expectations, both internally and also in a distributed learning environment.

Alternatively, Sunesis gives businesses the ability to monitor apprenticeships, NVQ's and Train to Gain schemes, providing real time information on all of their trainees, and the facilities to create training reports incorporating a variety of aspects of the course, such as progression, planning and personal milestones.
