"It has always been important for Further Education Colleges to provide effective marketing information to prospective clients. However, this has never been more important than now as the market is opening up; learners and employers are expected to pay for training; and colleges need to show how they are accountable and responding to the needs of their community. The role of market intelligence data in the review, planning and promotion of provision is of critical and growing importance".
