Missions, workshops for Agents
One of the most popular and successful of QE’s activities is the Missions (or Workshops) for Agents.
Schools meet Agents in their home country at these small, specialised workshops. Unlike the global ‘mega-workshops’, here schools and agents alike can have productive meetings in calm and congenial surroundings, conducive to building and reinforcing successful partnerships.
A selection of QE schools, led by the Quality English missions' manager, travel to the markets to take part in one day events. A typical day includes face to face meetings (pre-booked though Marcom) and an introduction to QE presented by Frances Pottshculte.
Agents are always invited to join the QE schools for lunch at the venue, which is a local and conveniently located hotel.
The majority of representatives at the QE Missions are the school Principals or Directors. This is because they take an active part in marketing their schools to agents. They are also directly involved in the day-to-day running of the school so are the best people to talk to.
Cities in which QE has run missions, from 2004 to 2012, are:
Rome (3), Milan (3), Madrid (4), Barcelona (2), San Sebastian (1), Moscow (3), Germany (4 centres), Budapest, Bratislava, Prague (3), Istanbul (3), Izmir, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Bogotá, Mexico City, Tokyo (2), Kyiv, Warsaw (2), Almaty, Taipei, Bangkok, Sao Paulo (2), Paris (2), Zurich (2), Santiago, Buenos Aires (2), Dubai (2), Beijing.
Quality English and many of the Quality English schools and Quality Education colleges will be in Almaty for our second mission to Kazakhstan on 1st April 2014. We will invite agents to the one day workshop where you can meet the school directors, the decision-makers, in a small, bespoke workshop.
