The ESOL, education training and management qualification specialist said it had added Thailand to the list of international locations in which it is active.
The company was approved by the country’s Council of University Presidents to offer its International GCSE, AS/A Level and Pre University Foundation qualifications.
In the first year of operation in the Southeast Asian country, LRN is aiming to provide some 400 Thai students with globally-recognised qualifications “instrumental” in helping them to progress through the highest academic levels around the world.
David Thomas, the deputy ambassador of the British Embassy in Bangkok who was the guest of honour at the launch event, commended the agreement between LRN and CUPT as “an example of excellent link building through education”.
“LRN will be able to support the education and development of many people based in Thailand,” he said.
“Not only will this help to create an excellent knowledge base in Thailand but it will also strengthen and develop educational links between Thailand and the UK.”
“Launching our qualifications in Thailand is an important step in increasing the availability of well-resourced and high quality education for local people that are keen to learn and progress to higher education,” noted Muhammad Zohaib Tariq, the CEO of LRN.
“We believe that education supports both progress and development and we’re pleased to help local students gain the qualifications that will help them to feed into universities around the world,” he added.
LRN is currently holding discussions with local partners as regards the implementation of the programs, he told The PIE.
