Leading UK Awarding Organisation's teacher training partnership with ACADSOC
Ascentis, a leading education charity and Awarding Organisation in the United Kingdom, is working collaboratively with one of China’s earliest online ESL education enterprises, ACADSOC, to up-skill teachers worldwide.
Founded in 1975, Ascentis transforms the lives of around 170,000 people every year through its range of specialist qualifications and is currently the number one provider of English for Speaker of Other Languages (ESOL) qualifications in London. In addition to this Ascentis also developed, as part of a small group, the English national professional standards for teaching training qualifications.
With 45 years’ experience Ascentis has developed a bespoke level 4 TESOL teaching qualification for ACADSOC to train ESOL teachers worldwide. To date over 10,000 learners have enrolled on the qualification.
The Ascentis board are thrilled to be extending their reach to Asia and are overwhelmed by the current successes of their partnership with ACADSOC. “I am delighted of what our partnership with ACADSOC has achieved so far, and providing thousands of people with teaching qualifications across Asia so they can go on to enrich the lives of learners worldwide is wonderful. We look forward to continuing to support the ambitious educational objectives of The People’s Republic of China”, Phil Wilkinson, CEO Ascentis.
Ascentis is currently developing more new TESOL teacher training qualifications and is looking forward to working on future projects with ACADSOC, to ensure future tutors are skilled in teaching English to young Chinese learners.
