“At the centre of our institutional goals lies our commitment to the learning and development of our students that both shape and form a culture of excellence, resilience, and entrepreneurship,” opines Katz.
Over the years, Boston has successfully expanded its reach with more than 47 Student Support Centres (SSCs) that offer tuition support. Boston’s success is attributed to providing relevant, market-related, in-demand qualifications that exceed industry requirements and closely link to workplace specifications, creating work-ready graduates. The institution works relentlessly to be recognised as a valuable contributor to the industry. “Boston is focused on delivering relevant programs in the fast-growing areas of the economy, extensively upgrading campus facilities and creating new skills opportunities, as well as the development and expansion of quality education and support services,” says Ruan Venter, Registrar at Boston.
Boston leverages the power of AI and a system called MaaS (Mentoring as a Service) to manage students. The institution’s training advisors use this technology to provide ‘personal attention’ to the students and virtually eliminate the gap in distance studies. “Boston has always relied on technology as an effective learning methodology as technology ensures academic consistency, quality, delivery and validity of all materials and knowledge transfer,” reveals Natalie Rabson, Counsellor at Boston.
Natalie also tells us, “Boston offered its students an MTN 30gig data package at a hugely discounted rate to assist students who otherwise didn’t have internet access.”
Boston City Campus has been recognized and awarded accreditation as an Independent Higher Education institution by the British Accreditation Council (BAC). The BAC is recognised globally as an influential voice on standards and quality for the education sector.
Boston established the graduate support services division, offering students modules on CV’s, the interview process, and other vital job seeking skills. As we look ahead into the future and what it holds for us, Boston envisages liaising with corporate and industry to ensure qualifications are relevant and will arm the graduates with appropriate work-ready skills. Simultaneously, Boston will continue to innovate and introduce new age qualifications that will meet and exceed the demand of the workplace.
