Chris Boulle, Chairman of the ADvTECH Board gave the following statement:
“As disclosed in the Annual Integrated Report, enrolments in the Schools division, excluding
acquisitions, are relatively flat for the 2019 academic year. This is primarily due to the difficult economic
climate and continuing high levels of emigration. However, taking acquisitions into account, overall
student number growth in Schools increased by 12%. The Tertiary division continues to experience
good organic growth with student numbers increasing by 10%.
We are pursuing several initiatives to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the Schools structures
and processes. The benefit of these initiatives will be most evident in the medium-term.”
