Building Student Relationships

Strong relationships provide a foundation for student engagement, belonging, and, ultimately, learning. The more high-quality relationships students have with their teachers, peers, and coworkers the better their engagement in school is the perfect picture for success. 

BENEFITS OF TEAM BUILDING

Connecting with our students is not the only way to measure success as an admissions manager or person. There are other dynamics to factor in as well such as "Team Building". This is one of the most effective ways to establish buy-in from your team. It shows them that you care about their well being, work life balance and success. This initiative also gives you the opportunity to do some fact finding about your team that we may often overlook because we are jammed with the day to day activities of driving the business.

Communicating for Success

The most important thing in the admissions process is to build rapport, credibility and follow-up. These skills and techniques have helped me in my success with show rates and enrolling a confident student.

Personal Improvement Plan

I plan on gaining more product knowledge so that I can relay the necessary information to prospective students. I also need to practice in how I engage prospective students to connect and make contact more personal. 

STILL LEARNING

I've just entered the job of admitting students.  It is very rewarding to see them get excited about a program or for passing a test. 

Action plans

This gave me good insight as to why, I may  not be getting return calls. I will use the 4 "C's" to help me acheive a better return rate on my voice messages.

Best practices

One of  my best practices is connecting with students by phone and during the appointment to build rapport. This builds trust, and prospective students feel comfortable and more confident in moving through the process.
