Digital Marketing Strategies for Schools
Schools’ funding is calculated largely on a per-pupil basis. A reduction in enrolment will mean a reduction in funding.
Your school is under a new microscope. The marketing and communications strategies that used to work for your school or district, may not be as successful because the landscape has completely changed. Your plans need to be adapted, reimagined, or even scrapped entirely to meet the new expectations of today’s families.
Schools need to successfully differentiate themselves to stand out – and the school website is the online shop front!
Moreover, schools also need to start recognising the necessity to allocate appropriate resources to digital marketing, an ever-growing area.
Success requires an integrated digital marketing strategy targeted at parents looking for a school for their children. Understanding how the school should be using their website, social media and internet marketing to grow their online presence and attract more parents (and ultimately students) is absolutely critical in today’s competitive marketplace.
Furthermore, it is even an opportunity to help disseminate and promote your work and the knowledge you collected in Erasmus+ training abroad to the whole school community.
Course Duration and Costs
All costs can be supported with a KA grant under the Erasmus+ programme.
For a 6-day course, Learning Together charges 580 euros per participant (A+B).
For our 6-day course, the course fee is 480 EUR per participant, for tuition and materials (6-day course x 80,00 EUR per day). This can be covered with the course fee that you receive with your KA1 grant: 80 EUR / day / person.
The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.
Payment of 100 EUR per participant (total amount).
This fee also includes our social program, which you can see below.
In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according project type (job-sadowing, long-term,…).
