Our Face-2-Face Training Programs have a maximum of 25 participants per course. This ensures we offer a tailored and personal setting to maximise your learning. This also means there are limited places available.


The testimonals below are in relation to the recently run online courses in May 2020.

The course is intense and offers insight into both the strategic and operational functions of Advancement. At the end of every session I had a list of things I wanted to do immediately. The challenge will be actually making time to get these things underway!
Marina Johnson, Lauriston Girls’ School.

An essential learning tool for anyone working in the Admissions Dept. I found the course to be informative, detailed, in-depth and the presenters were all very professional, friendly, easy to understand and happy to answer any questions.
Sofie Mandoukos, Admissions, Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the fantastic Practitioner course you have delivered this past week. I loved every minute of the presentations every day, and learned so much that my head is still spinning with information and ideas. It was a shame that we were not able to meet in person, but haven’t we all come so far when it comes to Zoom meetings and learning in the past 8 or 9 weeks!
Nicole Steyn, Haileybury

Thank you! I found the course extremely helpful!  The material is excellent and will be valuable. I thought the presentations worked well over zoom, but I did miss the opportunity to get to know others in our profession which is often such a valuable component. Under the circumstances I thought it went really well and I gained enormously. 
Lee Newcombe, Trinity Grammar School, Kew.
