Selling education is not the same as selling other products and services. To the lucky few, it’s a skill that comes naturally. For everyone else, it can be learned.
Edified’s sales training programs are specifically designed for recruitment and conversion teams. They help teams to gain the insight, knowledge and practical skills required for immediate, measurable and positive outcomes for a range of typical challenges and opportunities that they will encounter.
The workshops are founded on relationship-focused sales principles and innovative communication skills training. We use practical and highly relevant examples and scenarios for effective learning.
All workshops are designed around current industry practices and needs, and delivered by experienced sector professionals who understand the specific challenges facing institutions in their markets.
By making sure that employees are constantly progressing, an institution automatically gains more value and continues to move forward with a strong position in the market.
The education sector is currently in a period of rapid recovery and growth, and in order to attract and retain the RIGHT students in an increasingly competitive environment, there is an urgent need to upskill teams so they become more confident, sales-focused and ready to meet the new challenges and opportunities facing them.
The facilitator takes a brief from you to ensure critical pain points specific to your organisation and goals are included.
Attendees complete a short questionnaire prior to the workshop to help identify any skills gaps or areas of concern.
After the training session, a brief and insightful post-workshop report is shared with the managers, which includes practical takeaways gathered from the session.
Half day, face-to-face
With a sector-wide boom in applications and ever-increasing competition, there is an urgent need to upskill international recruitment teams. Using relationship-focused sales principles and innovative communication skills training, teams who attend will be better prepared and more confident to deliver outstanding results and experiences for students and their agent partner networks.
The workshop will provide clarity around the expectations of individuals against a backdrop of authentic and action-oriented engagements. The team will also develop their ability to effectively assess ‘best fit’ and remain focused on enabling the most qualified students to apply and enrol successfully to your institution.
The skills learned in this workshop can be applied not only to written communications, presentations and meetings, but also to great effect in everyday life and across different job roles.
Recruitment/road warrior teams
Sales and communications training is relevant for all seniority and experience levels. Recruiters would normally have some international experience and be currently working in ‘road warrior’ or regional/market management roles.
Half day, face-to-face
With a trend towards in-house contact centres often servicing both domestic and international prospective students, there is a growing need for the development of specific frameworks and communication skills training that enable teams to deliver a results-oriented and outstanding student and customer experience. We focus on relationship-based ‘sales’ principles which support the development of competitive advantage and can greatly improve conversion rates.
The workshop will provide clarity around the expectations of the team and empower them to develop a positive sales-focused mindset through authentic and action-oriented interactions. They will gain a greater awareness of audience needs, and develop their ability to assess ‘best fit’, enabling qualified students to apply and enrol successfully to your institution.
The skills learned in this workshop can be applied not only to emails, written communications, presentations and meetings, but also to great effect in everyday life and across job roles.

Teams may be newly onboarded, with varying experiences and backgrounds, or they may be domestic teams who have not worked with international prospects before. Many of the individuals we train are current student ambassadors.
