Admissions Training – Level 1 and Level 2

These newly developed one-day courses give concentrated and thorough training on all the major international admissions aspects of the Admissions Officer role.

Level 1 is a thorough introduction and is suitable for those new to the international admissions role or in the first 18 months of the job. Level 2 provides progression from this and provides a deeper understanding and practical techniques that even more experienced admissions officers will find useful.

Together, the Level 1 and Level 2 days represent excellent training and development for international admissions offices, and will build confidence in handling a wide range of international qualifications and admissions problems. Compliance issues are also addressed, building knowledge, awareness, and competence in this important aspect.

Subscriber members on our membership package Levels 1-5 normally cannot use their complimentary training places for these one-day training courses. (Level 6 – Premium members can use their complimentary training places for Admissions training days.) Places can be booked at a special discounted member rate.

You can nominate up to 15 colleagues to attend, so this is a very efficient updating and support option, saving a lot of team downtime compared to conventional off-site training.

The On-Site Support & Training day includes delivery of 4 of our new Fast Training Modules – one-hour-long fast introductory modules on core topics.

The first 4 topics for Fast Training Modules are confirmed, and more topics will be announced through 2019 so you can build your own On-Site Support & Training programme:

  • Practical Introduction to Tier 4 Compliance
  • Practical Introduction to Evaluating International Qualifications
  • Practical Introduction to Dealing with Education Fraud
  • Practical Introduction to Using the UK NARIC Information Bases and Resources

The small group format and on-site delivery means a flexible day of support and training can be offered, tailored to your exact needs and with opportunities for Q&A and customised support.

On-site Support & Training is included in our Level 6 – Premium membership package and is available separately to all UK NARIC subscriber members at £1100 + VAT per day (plus trainer travel costs).
