ESOL, a specialist in training and management qualifications, said it has added Thailand to the list of international locations in which it operates.
The company has been approved by the country’s Council of University Presidents to offer its international GCSE, AS/A Level and Pre University Foundation qualifications.
In its first year in the Southeast Asian country, LRN aims to provide around 400 Thai students with a globally recognized ‘instrumental’ qualification to help them progress to the highest academic levels around the world.
David Thomas, Deputy Ambassador at the British Embassy in Bangkok, who was the guest of honor at the launch event, hailed the agreement between LRN and CUPT as “an example of excellent networking 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 create an excellent knowledge base in Thailand, but it will also strengthen and develop educational links between Thailand and the UK.”

“The launch of our qualifications in Thailand is an important step towards increasing the availability of well-funded and high-quality education for local people who want to learn and progress to higher education,” commented Muhammad Zohaib Tariq, CEO of LRN.
“We believe that education promotes progress and development and we are happy to help local students gain qualifications that will help them get into universities around the world,” he added.
The LRN is currently in discussions with local partners to implement the programs, he told The PIE.
