The move will bring ILSC Business College’s three Australian branches under the new global Greystone College brand in a strategic move to streamline its vocational training offerings, ILSC has announced.
Greystone College, which has been the operating brand in India and Canada, will offer 40 nationally and internationally accredited vocational programs.
“It’s a conscious shift to adapt to the expectations of a more globalised mindset and demographic”
“A more global outlook not only represents our strategy moving forward, it also represents our diverse student body, and strengthens our position in the international education industry,” Paul Schroeder, CEO of ILSC Education Group said.
“It’s a conscious shift to adapt to the expectations of a more globalised mindset and demographic.”
According to ILSC, the move will present “a more comprehensive option for students”.
An expanded and more diversified range of qualifications will be available in Business, Marketing, Project Management, Leadership, Hospitality, TESOL & CELTA, and Interpreting and Translation.
ILSC Education Group is also hedging its bets on demand for vocational training growing in the future: Greystone College is adding to its Canadian locations in Toronto and Vancouver by opening in Montréal in October.
Students will now have the opportunity to study at Greystone College in seven locations worldwide. Other locations will include Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and New Delhi.
“They’ll gain a competitive edge, graduating with a qualification and educational portfolio recognised in the international market,” Schroeder added.
The two college brands have between them provided education to over 14,000 students over the last 15 years, Schroeder added.
ILSC Education Group announced it would close its ILSC-San Francisco and ILSC-New York language schools in February.
Its GlobalFoundations division planned to rapidly expand university partnerships in the US, ILSC said at the time.
