December Update

Hello Everyone,

It has been awhile since our last post, mainly because we have had our minds wrapped around a lot of numbers last few months. After analyzing all the information we received from both the sector and student surveys, we are proud to announce that there is a large demand for this centre from both groups and it has been deemed feasible.

With the semester coming to an end there are two specific projects being undertaken. Firstly, the composition of an academic journal article is well on its way. This journal article will summarize our experiences and the approaches we took over the course of this study and the results we found. Secondly, a business plan is being developed as an initial step to help get this proposed centre idea up and running. The business plan will take into account information obtained through the questionnaires to develop a financial framework for how this centre will function. At this moment in time there is no set release date of this information, but if anyone has any questions we would be happy to help.

This study had a timeline and as we approach the end of December, our contract's will be coming to an end. We would like to thank all of those involved with the study. It was a pleasure meeting you and getting your feedback. Harriet, Nicole and myself would like to wish you all a happy holiday and look forward to seeing this centre up and running in the near future and benefiting all of your organizations and the industry in general.
