Education and training market

The education and training market has an ever increasing focus on using modern technology, cohort/online learning and course optimisation to deliver education and training more productively, with better results, and with less time spent away. This requires a different approach to engaging with students, whether they be in the military or civilian sectors, especially with the increasing shortages in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.

By developing novel learning solutions involving real-world blended, synthetic, classroom and online facilities, Serco enhances educational and training outcomes, at the same time as reducing time spent on delivery of courses. 

This is done in tandem with our globally renowned university partners with whom Serco offer unique education and training solutions for professional, operational and resilience training.
