Education Advisor - Assessment Insights

The Education Advisor works with schools to help ensure they get the maximum value from the assessments that they have bought. It is largely a desk-based role with the potential for face to face interactions in the future, communicating with Senior Leaders and Data Managers in schools and MATs advising them on what more they could do with the reports they get from running our assessments in their schools.

Likely activities include helping customers to run reports, helping them to understand their data better, explaining results and giving ideas on how to analyse and use the data effectively to impact on student outcomes. Showing them further reports they could run and introducing other products that may complement the results they have may also improve the value they obtain from their investments in our assessments. This may include running virtual training sessions with schools or school groups.

At GL Education, we are passionate about the role we play in supporting schools to ensure that all students reach their full potential.  We do this by providing assessment solutions that help teachers learn more about their pupils, so they can find the best way to teach them. 

We are the leading UK provider in what we do and growing fast internationally – at the last count we have delivered over 7 million online tests across the globe. However, this only accounts for 1 per cent of the children in the world.  Our mission is to ensure all children have the best possible start by having access to our education tools.

The role:

  • Engaging with key stake holders in our customers to help them get the most out of the products they have bought.
  • Analysing reports to see who has run reports or recently run tests.
  • Organise telephone calls or video conferences to qualify how they are using the reports and to suggest ideas to get more out of them. There may be occasions where visiting a customer to demonstrate may be an ideal solution.
  • Show customers a path to continuous improvement in the use of our reports. Make recommendations on how they should be used.
  • Check back that schools feel they have got value from the assessment.
  • Where appropriate take future orders and develop sales referrals from existing customers.
  • Capture insight and feedback from the customers you are speaking to and feedback to Marketing, Sales and Publishing as appropriate.
  • Continue the development of teaching and learning initiatives that we implement with customers. Continue to develop clear models of implementation and evidence of success.
