Projects – Study NSW Global Scope Projects Network
Study NSW has deployed Practera to support Global Scope, a large scale, low cost business projects network connecting international students to undertake real life projects with NSW government, business & community organisations. Over 2.5 years, more than 1200 students from seven universities have gained real world skills with more than 150 clients and a professional mentor.
Practera platform manages collaboration and learning at scale, tracks performance and identifies issues in real-time. The program received a 2016 BHERT Roundtable award.
Director International Trade at NSW Department of Industry, Peter Mackey said “The Global Scope program has been a resounding success with great outcomes for hundreds of international students and project providers in Government, Business and Community. One of Study NSW’s priorities is to increase the attractiveness of regional NSW as a study destination for international students. International students in regional areas make up more than 8% of total enrolments and make a significant local economic and social contribution to their communities. We’re excited to be able to support regional international education partners to adapt the Global Scope projects model to their contexts and manage the program locally.”
