Event Description

MailChimp is a free email marketing tool that schools can use to communicate with parents, staff and the wider community. It has advantages over using Outlook, Gmail, or your Student Management System.

These include:

  • Analytics: schools know whether emails have been read by parents and links clicked on
  • Messages are attractive and readable on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops
  • Emails can be scheduled ahead of time (send a reminder about mufti at 5pm the night before)

This course is designed for senior management or admin staff that take care of parent communication. A working knowledge of your school’s SMS (Student Management System – Etap, KAMAR, Edge…) is required.

This level 3 course is not for the faint-hearted. This is a platform-agnostic course – Google AND Microsoft schools are welcome.

In this session we will show you how to:

  • Set up MailChimp for the school
  • Create lists of contacts
  • Create and send test messages
  • Track analytics.



What To Bring

Your laptop, charger and (if you prefer) a mouse.
