The AMDIS CERTIFICATE IN ADMISSIONS MANAGEMENT is designed specifically for people involved in admissions management in independent schools.
This two-day, workshop style, residential course which RSAdmissions delivers on behalf of AMDIS covers best practice across the many different stages of the admissions process. The course, including an assignment undertaken at the delegate's own school, leads to a formal qualification highly respected within the independent school sector.'
The RSAdmissions team is uniquely placed to deliver this course. In addition to our combined years of experience as admissions and marketing personnel in schools, we have been running training workshops for the ISCis regions, AMDIS, HMC Registrars and individual schools by request for over 5 years.
Everyone on the team is passionate about the importance of the admissions role, and in addition to delivering bespoke training we support and regularly visit over 300 clients who use their RSAdmissions database in school admissions departments every day.

And we heard from one Headmistress ...
"Jenny's participation in the recent AMDIS Certificate in Admissions Management course has required her to thoroughly audit and review every part of our school admissions process, resulting in many new ideas and suggestions for improvement and development of current practices. Working towards the qualification provided an excellent framework for Jenny to undertake this important analysis which was done to a very high standard indeed."
