NBCC works with accredited education agents from around the world. International Education Agents interested in working with NBCC must first apply to become a Recruitment Representative. Before beginning the screening process NBCC encourages all agents to complete the Canada Course for Education Agents and read NACAC’s Statement of Principles of Good Practice: NACAC’s Code of Ethics and Professional Practices. In particular education agents must read Section II E. found on page 12.
To apply to become a NBCC Recruitment Representative, education agents must complete a 3-step screening process:
Step 1: Submit the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
- A completed NBCC Recruitment Representative Profile
- Contact information for three references from Canadian, British or American institutions (ideally universities or colleges) with whom you have worked in the past (scanned reference letters will not suffice).
The International Education Office will review these documents to determine whether your services align with NBCC's recruitment standards, strategy, and goals. Your references will be contacted directly.
Step 2: Interview
Once the International Education Office is satisfied with your proposal and references, you will be invited to interview (typically via Skype) and discuss your strategies in more detail.
Step 3: Contract
Approved Recruitment Representatives are placed on a standard, one-year trial period contract and will be provided with comprehensive training on NBCC programs and basic admission requirements.
During the trial period, Recruitment Representatives are expected to recruit a prescribed number of students to NBCC. The prescribed number will depend on the market and NBCC's goals. Recruitment Representatives are only compensated for applications submitted during the contract period. NBCC Recruitment Representative compensation rate is in keeping with industry standard. Recruitment Representatives who successfully recruit the prescribed number of students during the trial period, and conduct business ethically and professionally to the credit of students may be invited to enter into a formal representation agreement with NBCC for a longer term.
All successful Recruitment Representatives must sign NBCC's standard agent representative agreement.
Please note, NBCC receives requests for partnership from more education agents than with whom we have capacity to partner. Not all education agents who complete the NBCC Recruitment Representative Profile will be contacted for partnership.
