COVID-19 has triggered an unprecedented period of rapid change in the Australian higher education sector – from the way institutions teach to how they are funded. Economic uncertainty, geopolitical volatility, exponential digitisation and physical distancing have all pushed the sector into a new normal.

Even before COVID-19, higher education institutions had already been under pressure to introduce changes to their workforces. Many of them had relied on fee income from international students, possessed limited agility and lacked market differentiation, making them ill-prepared for a postpandemic world.

New industry expectations, technological changes and higher student expectations are amongst the key areas driving change in the higher education sector. Organisations within this sector are under pressure to act fast in order to survive currently financial challenges and reposition themselves for a post-COVID-19 world. 

In this report, we reveal the 'no regrets' actions to transform workforces and to clearly define a workforce model, helping you deliver the capabilities needed.
