The EducationInvestor Asia Summit (@EduInvestor) brings together major private education providers, investors, and industry experts who are driving innovation in education in Asia. The event aims to provide a single forum to consider the various challenges facing the sector, affording attendees the chance to hear first-hand about the trends and opportunities that continue to attract investors to the market. The Awards celebrate the achievement in the business of education in Asia, promoting excellence and recognizing innovation in the private education sector.
We are tremendously proud of this achievement and we would like to congratulate everyone involved with Core Course:
- Our Product and Technology teams for designing and creating the platform;
- Our Implementation and Franchise Services teams for coordinating requests for new features and training;
- The staff of over 415 WSE Centers for providing ongoing support for the product and the continuous suggestions for its improvement;
- The >180,000 students who have entrusted WSE with helping them reach their dreams of learning English
Wall Street English opened 27 learning centers around the world in 2018, with 7 of those opening across the ASEAN region – namely 3 in Thailand, and 2 respectively in Malaysia and Myanmar, doubling the company’s presence in these two countries.
At least 6 additional ASEAN centers are planned in 2019, with further openings in Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia, and the first center opening in the new territory of Cambodia later this year. March also saw the 29th territory opening with a center in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
2018 resulted in students learning more with the upgraded method and platforms than ever before, and further gains have been achieved into 2019. Interestingly, the ASEAN region is contributing disproportionately to these gains – students across centers in this region have increased their activity & progress ratios by over twice the global average, demonstrating the hunger for English improvement in the area and showcasing how improved tools and systems can directly contribute to learning success.
David Kedwards also gave a very well-received presentation at the summit where he explored the benefits of the ELT industry for investors.
