A part of my role as Head of Marketing is to attend workshops and exhibitions designed to meet new educational tour operators. These events are a wonderful opportunity to meet new partners from around the world – all in one room!



I pre-make appointments and at the event, each educational tour operator comes to my table for a 20 – 30 minute meeting. In that time, I need to make Hilderstone stand out as being a language school they would like to send students to. Of course, there is a lot of follow-up afterwards and getting to know each other on a professional basis.



Our partner educational tour operators are paramount to our student recruitment activity and have a very important role in helping students to enrol in the best possible school to meet their personal needs and goals.

SUSHI-MAKING/ORIGAMI NIGHT AT HILDERSTONE COLLEGE

Last night our students learnt how to make sushi, taught by our own expert, Kumi , who runs the College snack bar (and is a great cook!) As if that wasn't enough, she then taught them the art of Origami! Here are some photos of the evening. Thanks, Kumi! Looks like everyone had fun.
