University Applications Fall

The number of UK-born university applications for September 2012, have fallen by about 12%, UCAS figures reveal. Earlier this year, the cap on the tuition fees for home students was raised to £9,000; close to three times more than what it used to be.
More and more people are opting out of university, and looking for other means of education – college, vocational training and certifications. And rightly so. An average CCNP certified professional earns £45,000, while the average salary of CISSP professional is £50,000, according to ITJobsWatch. A PRINCE2 Certified Project Manager's average salary is £50,000.

In the last few months, we’ve seen a marked increase in the number of school leavers from the demographics of 18-24 on our courses. There is a clear shift in people's preference for alternative, cheaper and quicker ways to kick start their career. The time is right to get a certification.
