Is it time to embrace enrolment enquiries at the start of the student journey?
When education providers embrace enrolment enquiries at the start of the student journey, student data becomes an asset, rather than a headache.
With such a large data influx at pre-enrolment time each year, the resources required for schools to collect, manage and act on essential information can be overwhelming for administrators. Inadequate processes have historically proven unnecessarily stressful for students and parents; an on-boarding nightmare for teachers; and a data protection concern for the school.
To overcome these challenges, leading schools are now providing easily accessible portals through which applications can be submitted, managed and tracked in ‘real-time’ from the point of enquiry through the entire process (multiple calls, visits, queries, on-boarding and beyond). These schools are putting students and parents in the driving seat, from the very start of the student journey.

In return for investing in interactive portals and intuitive student management technology, these schools are reaping the rewards of being able to:
- Accurately capture and record contact, enquiry, and enrolment details which staff can easily view, filter, follow-up on and track through the process.
- Achieve streamlined records of complex family relationships and details about responsible guardians, enabling administrators to safely and seamlessly communicate information through and beyond the enrolment process.
- Effectively manage information and respond positively to families, parents, students and the wider community whilst complying with any regulatory reporting.
- Quickly perform in-depth analysis of pre-enrolment data to help management understand the direct flow-on effect for all future planning and decision making.
The result? Both parents and administrators experience hassle-free interaction during the pre-enrolment process, ensuring each student’s learning journey begins on a confident and positive note.
