RSC South West


Jisc Regional Support Centres work with more than 2,000 UK learning providers helping them to improve performance and efficiency through the use of technology.

We provide advice and support, share good practice and facilitate collaboration to help solve your everyday challenges and achieve your strategic objectives.

Technology is vital to your organisation’s success, helping you to:

  • enhance the learner experience for better learner outcomes;
  • widen your reach to increase learner numbers;
  • improve quality and inspection outcomes and secure future funding;
  • do more for less, leading to cost reduction and efficiency gains.

Our remit covers Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Dorset.

Funded by the UK Department of Business Innovation and Skills, we work closely with practitioners within Further Education, Sixth Form, Specialist Colleges, Adult and Community Learning, Work-based Learning and Higher Education.
