OVERVIEW

Given the dynamic and increasingly competitive nature of the VET sector, engaging potential and current students in the digital environment is critical. Since 2012, in Victoria alone there has been a 40% drop in students undertaking government-subsidised apprenticeships and traineeships. It is vital institutions find innovative ways to engage and students in order to continue growth in revenue and brand presence.

Akolade’s 2nd Annual Digital Engagement in VET forum provides practical case studies on effective strategies to attract and retain students in the evolving competitive digital landscape. This unique interactive forum will explore applicable and measurable digital strategies that will help drive student acquisition, engagement and retention initiatives whilst ensuring long term ROIs.
