Erin Hawken arrived at AISB to take up the post of Head of University Guidance in 2017, having previously worked as a guidance counselor at a school in Ho-Chi-Minh City. AISB is an IB school, which offers students an international education from early childhood through to taking the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 & 12.
Erin explains how she arrived at AISB at a time when it was transitioning from Naviance to another university guidance platform. Erin had relied on Naviance to deliver the guidance programme at her previous school, and so was keen to find a new platform upon arrival at AISB.
When evaluating the best fit guidance platform for AIB, Erin says how she found BridgeU’s Education Partnerships team to be ‘well-organised and diligent’ in answering all her questions and concerns about adopting the system. Her first impressions were of a platform that offered clarity and a simple, easy to use layout.
