To register for Technovation Girls, all students must have their parent/guardian give consent officially.
If your parent has an email address/internet access:
When you sign-up for a student account on our platform, you will need to provide your parent/guardian's name and email address.
Your parent/guardian will receive a message from the platform; they should click the Sign the Permission Form button:
Parents should click on the button in the message, they should NOT reply to the email directly.
When the parent clicks the button, they will be brought to the parental consent form on the Technovation platform.
Your parent should type their name at the bottom of the form, and click the I agree button:
Your parent will then receive a signed copy of their consent form via email.
My parent did not receive the consent email! What should I do?
From the student dashboard, click Try re-sending the email, to have the message resent:
To ensure that your parent receives the email:
- Check that your parent's email address is entered correctly on your student profile:
- Ask your parent to check their email Spam and trash folders, in case the message was caught by a filter.
- Ensure that your parent has added firstname.lastname@example.org to their contact list:
If your parent/guardian does NOT have an email address/internet access:
Download a pre-filled consent form from your student dashboard, have your parent/guardian sign it, and send a photo/scanned copy to email@example.com.
Please use the email subject line “Technovation Girls parental consent form: Student Name".
If you cannot email your signed form, please ask your Mentor, teacher or Chapter Ambassador if they can send the signed form on your behalf.
Consent filed via this option will take at least 48 hours to appear on the student's account.
I'm an educator/Mentor and I have more than five consent forms to submit on behalf of my students! What should I do?
When possible, please ask students to download the pre-filled consent forms from their student dashboard, and have their parents sign it.
You may then email each photo/scanned copy to firstname.lastname@example.org; please use the email subject line “Technovation Girls parental consent form: Student Name".
Depending on the number of consent forms submitted, this option will take at least 72 hours to appear on the student's account.
