Improving the employability of Thai university and college graduates through English certification

EnglishScore is supporting higher education institutions and vocational colleges in Thailand to build up the skills and qualifications of their students, helping them gain employment after graduation. 

With a competitive job market and youth unemployment in Thailand hitting new peaks since COVID-19, there’s an increasing need to improve the qualification profiles of graduating students, to make them more employable in the global workplace.

Many education institutions are looking for convenient digital solutions which easily integrate into their current assessment processes to assess and track the English level of their students.

Institutions are using British Council EnglishScore to:

  • Securely and accurately test students’ English levels remotely via the EnglishScore mobile app
  • Instantly collect and measure test results from a personalised reporting dashboard
  • Save on time and administrative costs of in-person English assessments (like room hire, marking and proctoring exams)
 

University and college partners in Thailand

 

Since launching in Thailand in late 2021, we’ve had an influx of prestigious universities and colleges across the country join our Approved Partner Programme. These universities are able to issue co-branded certificates endorsed and accredited by the British Council, which students can add to their CV, LinkedIn profile and future job applications. 

Some of the top-ranked universities in Thailand include the EnglishScore exam as part of their placement, progress and exit exam requirements.

 
 

EnglishScore partners with the Association of Private Colleges of Technology and Vocational Education of Thailand

 

In March 2022, with the help of the Department for International Trade, EnglishScore signed an MoU with the Association of Private Colleges of Technology and Vocational Education of Thailand (PVET). This partnership will facilitate the adoption of British Council EnglishScore in all 450 vocational colleges within PVET.

PVET, established in 1984 to promote Thailand’s private vocational education, is a professional association of private vocational schools across the country. It has around 333,000 students studying courses at Vocational Certificate and Higher Vocational Certificate levels in commerce, industrial technician and fine arts.
