The role of admissions goes beyond enrolling students and ensuring correct data on student files. From the time a family contacts the school through to the students beginning classes, the successful admissions officer needs to work effectively with everyone involved in the process:  parents, students, relocation and education professionals, and school personnel including school secretary, Head of School and divisional heads, classroom teachers, special needs and language teachers, school secretary, and the school’s transition team, PTA and classroom parents. Only in ensuring a wraparound approach to admissions, can new students and their families be effectively transitioned to their new school and country. 

Some of the discussion points will include:

  • Why is admissions such an emotionally demanding position?
  • What services should an admissions office provide?
  • What is the role of admissions in managing families in transition?
  • What is best practice in managing internal and external relationships? 

Join us for a session which combines information about emotional intelligence with practical suggestions for ensuring an efficient, but also warm and welcoming introduction and induction into your school for your new students and their families.
