How to increase School Admissions ?


Posted on December 20, 2017 | by Vinod Kakumanu

Many school promoters are finding it difficult to enroll required number of students. This is in fact, one of the biggest challenge school promoters are experiencing when they launch a new school or trying to sustain an established school. Creating the best infrastructure, putting up hoardings and hiring the best resources is not helping yield the required number of admissions.

The situation may vary for a new school and an established school, Listing three important aspects that impact admissions –

1. Brand

Create a vision for the school, determine the positioning strategy, Establish a brand campaign to educate, engage and influence parents/student community. create a budget for the brand campaign and assign necessary funds. We suggest to run the brand campaign untill the desired admission goals are achieved and reduce / increase the campaign frequency basis the outcomes.

Ensure you are not compromising on the brand position, For example brand positioning that works for an affordable school may not work for an International School. We observed internal branding is often ignored and brand position is compromised.

The success of the brand campaign depends on the given situation. Measure monthly, the outcomes based on the awareness created in the target market, trust with parent community, reputation and increasing trend in quality of incoming inquiry’s.

Awards and accolades add value to the brand repute.


2. Communication (Marketing)

Determine the catchment area, target segment and unique selling points. Define a communication strategy, select media and create the appropriate content specific to a media. Various communication media are available – outdoor, indoor, digital, social, web, TV, etc.

Define a budget for the communications campaign, assign necessary funds for the required duration. The duration depends on the type of schooling you are offering.

Measure the success of the communications campaign on a monthly basis based on the number of incoming inquiry’s, their quality and determine what media is working for you.  An increasing trend in the incoming inquiry’s is desired.

Marketing to an unwanted segment, catchment area and spending on an unwanted media are the most common mistakes we observed. Avoid spending on a media which is not giving quality inquiry’s, reassign budgets to an appropriate media.


3. Admissions (Sales)

The number inquiry’s you are able to convert into an admission, play a vital role in the success of a school. The more admissions, the more success. You have the necessary funds to continue to sustain operations of the school and realize your dream of education more and more children.

Most of the time brand, marketing / communications strategy’s work very well. Parents walk-in to the school, but does not admit their children in the school. Reasons could be many, listing the most common reasons for your reference –

  1. School’s proximity to the child’s residence
  2. Process of handling admissions
  3. Parent is not convinced with what they are getting for the price they are paying
  4. Features communicated in brand and marketing campaigns are not seen in the school
  5. Infrastructure is not ready
  6. Curriculum / Program / Resources
  7. Many more..

An increasing trend in the number of admission is desired. You need to ensure that the team handling admissions process are trained to sell your school programs and efficiently handle objections raised by parents.

Our Story


Posted on December 9, 2017 | by Vinod Kakumanu

School Serv, an enterprise that has grown to be a leading K-12 School Lifecycle services company is an idea of change brought to life. It embodies an ambition of reimagining education by bringing school services expertise close to educationists. The need for founding an agency that can bridge the gap between the learned and the learner, between the result and the potential, dawned upon its founder Vinod Kakumanu when he navigated through his own academic journey and stepped into the real life.

 

Reflecting on the questions like what part of him as a person is informed by school education? What dimensions of life did school education initiate him into and what avenues could have remained unexplored? Which potentials of his fellow students remained unidentified? What are those factors that hamper original initiatives in education? What resources provided by the science of the time could have remained inaccessible to students and why? These personal meditations coupled with national facts shaped his vision.  The vision came to life in the year 2009 in form of School Serv. A vision to help visionaries and leaders reform education.

It will be useful to share our perspective here.  We are a nation of one of the world’s youngest population. To translate this opportunity into a developmental advantage, a school education that prepares the child for life in the modern world is fundamental. Our school education scenario leaves much to be desired however.

There are lots of studies that reflect on our school education standard. Some of the recent ones, national and international don’t paint any prettier picture. Program for Student Assessment or PISA tested the scholastic progress in a study of two Indian states finding it 109th, out of 110 countries. Another study done by Pratham, published in its Annual Status of Education Report, states that three-fourths of all students of class 3rd, half of class 5th  students, and one-fourth of class 8th  students cannot read text meant for class 2nd.  We know that there is no denying that we are faced with a chronic problem. We find it quite an anomaly when we see that how good learners Indians prove to be when they emerge as internationally leading scientists, technocrats, business administrators, entrepreneurs, academicians, innovators, litterateurs and help create knowledge economies.

We have set out to play our part in remedying that. With an array of planners, expert academicians, and subject matter experts, we have reassured educationists who want to venture out to become eduprenurs but are deterred by the complexity in starting a school and bureaucratic hassles they come across in founding and operating a school. We have kept our promise by supporting their vision with comprehensive school consulting services.

Along with school promoters, we started building schools on different scales and began operating them. We, in all cases, made a point to design perfect learning spaces equipped with most suitable infrastructure. We facilitated it all, including school architecture, teachers, school consultants, administrators; curriculum design leaving nothing substandard or unplanned. And so we built, and continue to build, opportunities both for students and teachers and we are helping our schools to succeed and sustain throughout.

One only has to take a look at School Serv’s realized projects with highly defined educational environments to know what distinguishes us from others as a comprehensive K-12 school lifecycle services provider.
