Being Student & Parent Centred
Arry Pandher - January 27th, 2023
One of our core values at GrantMe is being student & parent centred. And what does that mean exactly?
Well, it starts with why families come to GrantMe in the first place. They’re stressed about planning their future. They want to ensure they’re on the right path to have a future full of options – whatever that may mean to them.
Having options can mean many things to different students; a pool of additional career opportunities, choosing which school they want to study at, or getting to pick where in the world they want to start their career. It’s exciting because students can choose what their future means to them.
Meet Matthew, who moved from Vancouver to Toronto to pursue a new career in business after originally planning to stay home because he wasn’t sure if he would be able to secure a spot at a university outside of his hometown. It’s empowering Matthew did the work to have the freedom to choose what his future looks like. And now he has multiple pathways to achieve it. (We’re smiling too 😃)
Let us be clear:
Planning Your Future Is A Big Deal And Often Stressful.
GrantMe makes sure students get it right the first time around.
At GrantMe, we turn the pressure students face into possibility through proactive planning, goal-setting, & action. We believe students should be given a toolbox & plan that allows them to walk into their career in control, with the power of choice, so that they can impact the world.
When students feel that they have options, they reach new heights. They’re less stressed; they think clearer, make better decisions and have a bigger impact on society.
To most students, this ability to design their future doesn’t seem like an option. They’re too used to feeling stuck or being told what to pursue, taking minimal action, or just “doing whatever everyone else does.”
Helping students design their future is a huge responsibility. It requires us to be excellent at what we do each step of the way. There’s no room for error when we’re helping students plan their future – we know we have to support them with surgical accuracy. That’s what being Student and Parent Centred is; doing everything to build the best products & services to help our students.
That’s why we’ve built a team dedicated to guiding families through every step of the process. From identifying the right schools to apply to, to crafting compelling essays and preparing for interviews, we are here to provide the support and guidance students need to achieve their dreams.
At GrantMe, students & parents come first. Most education consultants often try to create their products to please universities or investors, but at GrantMe, our product is designed for students – not a vendor. Whenever we have to make a decision we’re not sure of – a guiding question is always “What’s best for the student?”. This focus is what’s allowed GrantMe to design our products to solve problems for families – by building for them & only them.
This shows up everywhere at GrantMe & with all departments. We work closely with students and their families to understand their unique strengths, interests, and goals, and then develop a personalized plan to help them achieve their dreams. Our platform & programs have been crafted from the painpoints we’ve heard from our students.
Ultimately being student centred at GrantMe means we are dedicated, passionate, and committed to helping our students succeed across each department and at each decision we make.
