The format was designed to allow centres of all sizes and with a range of budgets to attend, and the educators attending came from the full range of English UK’s membership.

“With the education strategy of the Japanese government and the Olympics… it felt like the right time”

Agents were able to meet with a university, a further education college, seasonal multi-centres, owner-run boutique schools and large chains.

“This region has always been important for our members,” said Roz McGill, English UK’s market development manager.

“With the education strategy of the Japanese government and the Olympics in 2020, it felt like the right time to reinforce members’ partnerships in this key market, and Taiwan has great potential both in invaluable long-term adult students and growing demand for junior courses”.

Louise Gow, English UK’s agent relations manager said: “We always aim for a mix of agents that are already sending significant numbers of students to the UK, and those that are interested in opening up this market.

“Conversations that our team had with agents reflected this mix. We had experienced agents looking for new partners for specific courses – my first request was for English and fencing – as well as an agent who sends predominately to Australia, who was looking for a new market for her students.”

The format is designed to allow centres of all sizes and with a range of budgets to attend, and the educators attending came from the full range of English UK’s membership.

English UK’s 2020 Asia Pacific events will take place in Hanoi (23 – 24 November) and Bangkok (26 -27 November).

English UK will also accompany members to Argentina for a Latin American-focused event on the 20 and 21 April 2020 and plans to combine this with an exploratory mission to Ecuador.
