Welcome to the third part of Nisai’s quest for Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) status. In this series, we’ll walk you through strategies and initiatives that highlight our commitment to inclusive education and student support.  In this part, we delve into our data-driven approach to enhancing student support and development with the work of Nisai Professional Development Institute (NPDI) and our collaboration with Staffordshire University, focusing on utilising data for continuous improvement. 

Data-led analysis: The foundation of student support 

At Nisai, we understand that data is a powerful tool for driving educational success. Our commitment to data-led analysis ensures that we can tailor our teaching strategies to meet the unique needs of each student, fostering an inclusive and supportive learning environment. 

  1. Partnership with Staffordshire University: Nisai is proud to announce a partnership-collaboration with Staffordshire University. Together, we aim to focus on data analysis and its applications for both Nisai and the university. By leveraging this partnership, we can gain deeper insights into student performance and refine our educational practices to maximise impact. 
  2. Focused research for maximum impact: Recognising the significance of data in shaping effective educational strategies, Nisai is committed to giving this area the necessary focus and attention. The dedicated research staff will work on understanding and interpreting data to benefit Nisai, our students, and customers.

The Nisai Professional Development Institute (NPDI) is a critical service of our strategy to enhance learners’ support and foster a culture of continuous improvement among educators and build a pathway to lifelong learning. 

  1. Development of an adult professional development system: Currently, Nisai is in the development phase of building and launching an innovative Adult Professional Development System. This system will facilitate the creation and delivery of unit-based activities with online assessments, providing educators with the tools they need to enhance their skills and knowledge. 
  2. Online assessments for effective learning: The new professional development system will include comprehensive online assessments, ensuring that educators can effectively gauge their progress and apply their learning in real-world scenarios. This approach not only supports professional growth but also translates into improved teaching practices that benefit our students. 
  3. Continuous improvement and innovation: NPDI embodies Nisai’s commitment to continuous improvement and innovation. By investing in the professional development of our educators, we ensure that they are equipped with the latest knowledge and best practices, enabling them to provide exceptional support to our students. 

Commitment to excellence 

Nisai’s data-led approach and the development of NPDI are integral to our mission of providing outstanding student support. By leveraging data and investing in professional development, we create a dynamic and responsive educational environment where every learner can thrive. 

As we continue our journey to maintain the IQM “Centre of Excellence” status, our focus on data-led analysis and professional development remains unwavering.
