Unlike some people working in this industry, we’ve personally hosted students and taught English for over 15 years. Because of that, we truly have first-hand knowledge of the intricacies of international education and homestay program management. Therefore, we have better insider knowledge to share than the average agency.
Reasons to Partner with Passport Scholars
You wouldn’t believe how often we’ve witnessed firms committing minor and not-so-minor infractions. From using Gmail for collecting sensitive data to placing students in homes without running background checks, we’ve seen it all. We follow the law and invite you to read it for yourself. We also go the extra mile in protecting your data.
Some call it being “picky,” but we prefer to use “selective.” We strive to choose only the best students, homestay families, and partners possible. We believe good education and cultural immersion are important for the student, school, and homestay family. Because of that, we aim to provide our stakeholders with only the best.
Great design must be part of the strategy of any organization. Google has a saying: “Focus on the user and all else will follow.” It’s a simple yet profound principle followed by Apple, Ikea, and Starbucks and has made them international successes. We’ve applied it to everything, from our website to the materials we use when promoting our partner schools overseas.
Some firms are stuck in the Stone Age, using spreadsheets or outdated databases to manage sensitive data. We’ve carefully thought out each technological aspect, from our phone systems to our customer database. All our tech runs in the cloud, meaning we can work securely and provide you with top-notch support from anywhere in the world, on any device, at any time.
If you’ve read our About Us page, you know our guiding principles are 1) Put People First, 2) Work Smarter, and 3) Be Reliable. We’re all about providing better service because we know firsthand what it’s like being on the other side of the table. As educators, parents, and homestay hosts, we have personally experienced the service provided by other firms and strive to do better.
