An Inspired education prepares your daughters and sons for success, happiness and fulfilment in their lives beyond school. For almost all students, those immediate next stages are university followed by employment. In the very best schools, preparation for both begins at an early stage, which is one very important reason why you as parents have chosen Inspired. While school is to be enjoyed day by day by itself, parents of all our students – from the early years upwards - need to be reassured that their school provides timely, expert and customised advice for the future.

Inspired Director of University Admissions and Careers

That future is now global; and it is this global expertise that distinguishes what the Inspired network of now over 64 schools with 45,000 students world-wide can provide. To leverage our group strength, we have hired a Director of University Admissions and Careers, Mahtab Hanjani, to be based in London who will lead and co-ordinate the work of all our schools’ university and career counsellors. In this way, we shall ensure that each student in each school will have access to the most up to date shared knowledge regarding admission to the different faculties in all the top-ranked universities and other favoured higher education destinations globally.

Ms. Hanjani has been an educational advisor for the past ten years, coaching students and their families on optimal ways to navigate the college admission process. Her passion for education led her to set up a consulting firm with a mission to recommend “best fit” universities to clients through a carefully balanced and comprehensive approach. Her extensive knowledge of the culture and ethos of the top global universities has enabled her to offer valuable advice to international students. Through tailor-made strategies for each student, she has helped applicants reach their potential and succeed in gaining admissions to the best universities available to them, whether these are highly coveted Ivy League universities, other world-renowned liberal arts colleges, or institutions with specialist reputations to help fulfil highly developed ambitions and interests.   

Prior to a career in education, Ms. Hanjani was a senior banker at Barclays Capital in London. As a Managing Director, she actively recruited and mentored university and MBA graduates, analysts and associates. Her investment banking career began at CSFB in New York followed by Lehman Brothers in New York and London. She received her BA in Comparative Literature from Smith College in 1989 and an MBA in Finance from Columbia Business School in 1994. 

Partnership with Crimson Education

In addition, and in order to strengthen our provision further, Inspired is now a premier strategic partner of Crimson Education, a company dedicated to helping students succeed in entering a top university of their choice – in the US, the UK and world-wide. With a specialist team of university application experts based in major cities around the world, leadership mentors and academic tutors, Crimson provides a personalised and customised service to complement the advice that each Inspired student receives at school.

To start, each student will receive the Crimson App which sets out the milestones, guidance and resources on the road to successful university admission and has access to Crimson’s extensive university information databases. Crimson’s specialists will also visit our schools to make presentations to students, their parents and school staff, providing the insight to enable each student to present as a stand-out applicant for their university of choice. Students who wish to retain Crimson for further on-going individualised support can then benefit from preferential rates due to the partnership with Inspired.

Berklee-Brown University creative entrepreneurship summer camp: in Boston from Summer 2020

Creativity and entrepreneurship are widely recognised as the most sought-after 21st century skills for future employability. It is for this reason that one of Inspired’s three educational pillars is dedicated to the creative and performing arts - to provide all our students with the self-confidence and creativity to apply to everything they do at school and beyond.

With this in mind and following on from the news last month of the exclusive partnership between Inspired and the Berklee College of Music (“Inspired by Berklee”), I am delighted to announce that we will be adding the above-mentioned exciting Berklee-Brown University initiative to our existing range of summer camps from 2020. More details to follow shortly!

The Head of each Inspired school will follow up directly with  you to provide further information on each one of the initiatives above.
