NACAC publishes guide on how to work with agents

US association NACAC has published a guide on working with education agencies for its 14,000 members, designed to ensure they understand the principles of accountability, transparency and integrity that the association says must be used if pursuing a commission-based international recruitment policy. A guide for parents is also planned.

Recruitment strategies focus of OACAC

Recruitment strategies, managing relationships with agents and understanding secondary education ladders were at the forefront of over 80 educational sessions at the recent Overseas Association for College Admission Counseling (OACAC) 21st annual conference earlier this month.

NACAC says “yes” to agent use

After more than two years of debate, the National Association of College Admission Counselling (NACAC) has made a groundbreaking decision to allow its 13,000 members to use commission-based education agents to recruit international students. At the organisation's conference in Toronto this weekend, the governing assembly voted 152-47 to change NACAC's Statement of Principles of Good Practice.
