Inclusive Admissions #1: Marketing
How to execute inclusive pupil recruitment campaigns and promotional materials
Did you know your school could be missing out on applications simply because your marketing isn’t as inclusive as it could be? This FREE webinar will consider how to run inclusive pupil recruitment campaigns and ensure that your prospectus, other promotional materials, and your choice of advertising media don’t inadvertently exclude, or fail to reach, certain audiences. With expert voices, practical tips and real stories.
