Melbourne’s Box Hill Institute has signed an agreement with University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL) to work towards the delivery of language assessment services in Australia and around the world.
Box Hill Institute, CEO, John Maddock met with Cambridge ESOL's CEO, Dr Mike Milanovic to cement an alliance - the first agreement of its kind between an education institute in Australia and Cambridge ESOL.
In what promises to be a significant new strategic alliance, Box Hill Institute's CEO, John Maddock said, “We look forward to working with Cambridge ESOL to further advance the delivery of testing and assessment services in Australia and globally, including without limitation, a strategic collaboration for delivery and assessment of the Occupational English Test.”
Language learners are set to be the winners through this exciting new alliance which will be instrumental in the growth and development of the test in Australia and across the globe.
Cambridge ESOL is the world’s leading provider of language assessment for learners and teachers of English, with nearly four million candidates a year in 130 countries. It is a part of the world-renowned University of Cambridge, which is regularly placed No.1 in rankings of the world’s universities.
Cambridge ESOL’s CEO, Dr Mike Milanovic said “We are rapidly expanding our activity in Australia and are delighted to be working with Box Hill Institute. Together we can offer an enhanced service both in Australia and throughout Box Hill’s network which has been so successful. There are many other opportunities to be pursued together in Asia and the Middle East, for example in the hospitality industry where English language skills and global mobility for staff go hand in hand.”
Building on their extensive relationships with industry and government, these two iconic educational organisations will provide access to identified target markets and clients globally, where English language training, assessment or vocational higher education products and services are required.
Mr Maddock explained that the two organisations will soon be announcing further details of the services which they plan to deliver together.
