Admissions has everything you need to manage the entry of applicants to your school simply and effectively – with a huge range of tools giving you complete control over all aspects of the admissions process.
It’s highly flexible and easy-to-use, with simple enquiry forms for all applicants, parents and agents, and contains details of enquiries, registrations, offers, withdrawals and refusals. It includes weekly and monthly breakdowns, as well as key admissions filters too, so you have total control over the information.
Using the customisation tools you can track an individual’s progress, compare them with other applicants, see reasons and methods of enquiry and where prospective students are going, or why places are rejected or withdrawn. You can also search for applicants by core fields as well as agencies, or other schools, visits and campaigns, then group candidates using a customisable grid containing their quick view record, family tree, contact cards and telephone logging.
The module also allows you to build a professional exam programme, while school entry can be pre-planned so new pupils are in their correct groups, with their passports, visas, SEN and transport records set before arrival. You can inform parents through the school’s Parent Portal.
An applicant’s record holds all their key information and there’s a document repository to upload and tag documents and files, with all communication by letter, email, text or phone logged too. Other handy options include group creation, event management, data export, creating badges and labels and marketing tools for campaigns and admissions literature.
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25th May 2018 and this is going to affect how schools manage data of any European Union (EU) citizen. With Admissions teams collecting vast amounts of sensitive data on a regular basis, storing this large amount of data in a paper-based system may present issues when it comes to data security and compliance. The Admissions Portal assists schools with managing the entry of applicants, with the Consent Management feature from the Data Protection module to support GDPR requirements.
