“Sarah O’Sullivan from SOS Education Consultancy is an absolute dream to work with. I would highly recommend SOS services to any colleagues working in the education industry. An expert in her field, Sarah is not only very knowledgeable about higher education internationally, she is also a great connector of people, due to her extraordinary social and emotional intelligence.
She is always alert to opportunities to facilitate positive change in the lives of those she encounters and she does this with ease, grace and a warm sense of humour. In our case, she was constantly thinking of prospective partnerships that would match well with Mary Immaculate College in terms of our academic offerings, expertise in the field of teacher education and humanities and student-centred approach. She had the market insight and foresight to know what would work well for both parties, and was always full of encouragement to both sides allowing more collaborative possibilities than we would have imagined without her intervention.
SOS Education Consultancy was instrumental not only in helping MIC to build active partnerships with prestigious universities throughout Brazil, but also in developing a weeklong programme for the top 30 teachers in Brazil to come to Ireland in 2018, hosted by MIC. This led to a scholarship from CAPES for 19 principals and school leaders in Brazil to come to Ireland in 2019/20 for a Graduate Diploma in Mentoring and Leadership in Schools. A number of those participants were funded by MIC to progress to a Master of Education degree and are due to graduate in October 2021. SOS has made a great difference to many of our lives, both here in Ireland and in Brazil. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending the work of SOS Education Consultancy and look forward to working together on many more exciting projects and collaborations.”
