UK NARIC Admissions Officer Training (Level 1)

Event Overview

This newly developed one-day course gives a concentrated and thorough introduction to all the major international admissions aspects of the Admissions Officer role.

Although the training is practical with useful techniques, methods and checklists, there is also an emphasis on building a deeper understanding of education systems and the methods for comparison of international qualifications. This equips you to knowledgably consider and evaluate a wide range of qualifications.

An overview of Chinese and Indian education and qualifications will give you an essential grounding in these commonly encountered qualifications.

English language proficiency is a key issue in international admissions and the day includes an introduction to the different tests, scales and measures in use, and how English language proficiency can also be evidenced by general qualifications.

Today, all international admissions have to be compliant with Home Office rules and Tier 4 processes. This training sets out a systematic approach to evaluation, selection and making an offer that will meet compliance requirements.

We have developed an Admissions Officer Level 2 training that will be delivered on Wednesday May 10th 2017 in London and Wednesday July 12th 2017 in London, to offer progression from this Level 1 training. Together, the two days will provide excellent training and staff development for Admissions Officers.

This event will help:

Ideal training and development for new Admissions Officers or those in the first 18 months of the job.
