Shane English School Taiwan (SEST) is very pleased to announce their first ever Trinity College Diploma TESOL course has been successfully completed. SEST is the only provider of this qualification in the whole of Taiwan, and this is reinforcement of SEST’s goals in the area of teacher development as part of SEST’s “Career Development Scheme”. The long road to Diploma success started back in 2010 when the SEST Principal worked with Shane English School Japan on how we would be able to run this very important but demanding teaching qualification. Logistic issues were the biggest challenge, as examiners needed to be flown over to Taiwan in order to fulfill the stringent examination process. The teaching exams, written exams, phonology exams and coursework were all duly completed with the results finally arriving in late January and Diploma certificates arriving by late February. This course was an excellent step on the journey of continued professional development.
Lots of excitement was generated at the recent franchising show in Busan, South Korea. Several potential franchisees showed a very strong interest in partnering with the Shane English School brand. This show came on the heels of the franchising show in Seoul late last month, making South Korea a strong leader in the English School market.
Shane English School is pleased to report great success at the Korean Franchise Expo, 2012. The Koreans organized a show that was clean, quiet, and very well attended. Shane English School was fortunate enough to meet a number of high quality potential master franchisees. We have high hopes for signing a competent partner for the Korean market in the near future.
Shane English School is pleased to report positive results from attending the 2012 Guangzhou International Franchise Exhibition. The Business Development team met with enthusiastic potential franchisees from many different regions of China. Guangdong Province is proving to be an area with exceptional potential. The next destination is Seoul where the team will be attending the Korean Franchise Fair from March 15 to 18th.
