The Grok Schools Community has been designed to address how to successfully build long-term meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships between universities and overseas high schools – while driving higher education enrolment.
Many institutions aspire to achieve greater engagement but fail to effectively build lasting relationships with schools and counsellors. Institutions with in-country representatives may also struggle to gain traction and access to schools. The Grok Schools Community takes on the mantle of your high school engagement across key markets in Asia, and carefully curates a program of engagement that rationalises your activity with schools for maximum effect, lasting influence and ultimately better recruitment results.
Will benefit from facilitated exposure to a network of high schools in Asia with student populations seeking overseas higher education. A virtuous circle of recruitment activity is created by delivering sustained targeted interactions over time with the same group of schools that are well-matched to your institution.
Will benefit from being part of a collaborative community that supports students’ higher ed ambition and delivers needed resources and content identified by the school counsellor community.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Grok Schools Relationship Manager supports a community of client institutions and school counsellors to identify and curate tailored student engagement that helps students and parents through their decision-making process.
The Relationship Manager carefully selects target schools, communicates with counsellors, and co-ordinates a series of interactions for your institution over a predetermined time period.
Your high school interactions take place. Feedback from students and counsellors is provided after each interaction. Future interactions re-target and build affinity with the same students over time.
Success Story: The Canadian International School
Melissa O’Leary, Secondary Guidance Counsellor
“The Canadian International School (Vietnam) was pleased to host a parent seminar presented by the Grok Community on “Financing Your Child’s University Education”. Reflecting our students’ most common country destinations, our parents learned more about understanding how to plan for their child’s university investment in Canada, the USA and Australia. The presentation was the most well attended of all parent seminars this year at the school, with about 70 parents attending from both the Canadian International School and the Bilingual Canadian International School, representing parents from primary school to senior secondary students. The parents commented that they found the presentations helpful, and requested copies for their future reference. We’d like to say a massive thank you to David at Grok and the representatives from Dalhousie University (Canada), University of Pittsburgh (USA) and Deakin University (Australia) for helping our school community to learn more about this important aspect of university/college planning.
We look forward to a continued partnership with the Grok Schools Community in order to further support our students and families in making these important decisions.”
