Reducing the Administrative Burden

The introduction of Education of the maintenance of rights (EMA) in September 2004 meant that more young people from disadvantaged backgrounds could afford to stay in education rather than being forced to find work. But the regime brought an extra burden for higher education (FE) colleges. They now have to manage enrollment in the system, monitor attendance and notify the Council for assessment and payment of its decision to pay students EMA, or not pay you. It is estimated that about half of the 16-year-old studying in England benefit from EMA. To receive the grant, students must attend at least 12 hours of continuing education courses under the supervision of each week. Payments are to 10, 20 and 30 per week depending on household income.

Students can also receive bonuses depending on the progress they make. Management Support Because attendance is a key factor in making payment decisions, the FE college managers need an accurate and efficient monitoring and recording of this activity. A system is necessary therefore that gives FE college staff administrative flexibility to choose the data capture methods that best suit their specific needs. The control software is applied to the management of documents necessary to accommodate paper records, direct data entry and remote input registers on the Web. This flexibility is also necessary in any request for information, as users who need a wide range of report options.

In addition to offering Web information, the ideal software will also contain a web portal with restricted access permissions password allows access to relevant information, plus the ability to process bonus payments and documentation EMA EMA. Secure web access for the entry of data reporting assistance and support Web-based complete a perfect system.
