Building English proficiency skills for future employability in Indonesia

British Council EnglishScore first launched its Approved Partner Programme in Indonesia in early 2021.

Since then, we have partnered with top-ranked universities, government departments and household-name brands like Pioneer Indonesia and Capella Ubud, Bali to help improve graduates’ English proficiency skills for future employment.

In a study which looked at the skills needed for the future (by 2030) in Indonesia, employers said digital skills and English language skills were the most important to develop, and a lack in these areas would limit youth employability in the future.

EnglishScore’s mobile test aims to bridge the gap between education and employment by making English assessment more accessible and affordable. The EnglishScore mobile test is used by over 5 million people globally, and hundreds of universities and organisations test and certify their students and staff through our partnership programme.

 

Partnering with top-tier universities in Indonesia

 

We have partnered with more than 60 universities in Indonesia, including some of the top 20 ranked institutions in the country (according to Scimago Institutions Rankings 2022), to help assess and certify the English level of their students.

Our university partners use EnglishScore for placement, monitoring progress, graduation, or all three and over 430,000 test sittings have been conducted in Indonesia to date.

 

 

Supporting government initiatives in Indonesia

 

EnglishScore is also working with the Indonesian government to support its plans to upskill students and teachers and improve the standard of education and employability of young people.

Perguruan Tinggi Negeri Pariwisata (PTNP): EnglishScore is working with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf), which oversees six polytechnics, to upskill tourism graduates by helping them certify their English skills for future employment. 

In partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy and hospitality industry experts from Traveloka and Capella Ubud, Bali, EnglishScore delivered a webinar on the skills young people need post-COVID to succeed in the hospitality and tourism industry. You can watch the full Hospitality and Tourism webinar here.

ICE-I edX: The Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology provides scholarships for diploma, undergraduate and master’s degree students who take online courses at the Indonesia Cyber ​​Education (ICE) Institute. Students can now apply to the ICE-I edX Scholarship and use British Council EnglishScore’s trusted Professional Certificate as proof of their English proficiency.

Program Pendidikan Profesi Guru: This initiative involved using our mobile test to assess over 2,000 high school English teachers, with the aim of identifying teachers who required additional support and training. English teachers who successfully completed the programme will be awarded the title Gr (Profesi Guru).
