A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Nisai Group Ltd of the United Kingdom (Nisai) and local company Syarikat Pakar Tenaga Bersatu (PTB) for an agreed collaboration to the establishment of a Nisai Branch in Brunei Darussalam.

The Nisai Brunei branch, once in operation, is expected to cater for Nisai’s clients from all countries across the ASEAN region including China and Japan as well as several countries in the Middle East to offer an alternative approach of learning through a virtual platform for academic Cambridge International IGCSEs and A Levels subjects.

Through its strategic partnership with the National Open College Network (NOCN) of the United Kingdom, vocational and work-based programmes could also be delivered online.

The signing took place during the Royal Institution 14th Global Congress and Conferment Event held this afternoon at the Empire Hotel and Country Club, Brunei Darussalam, to which the senior officers of both Nisai and PTB are members of the Royal Institution.

The proposed Brunei Regional Hub is expected to recruit and employ at least 15 Bruneians, in its preliminary stage, to be given teacher/mentor training in order to serve and address learning requirements of Nisai’s clients. Local technical and vocational trainers too will be selected to become trainers and assessors for the Technical and Vocational blended learning courses.

Dhruv Patel, CEO of Nisai Group commented:

“What first attracted me the most to establish the regional hub in Brunei Darussalam was the high standard of proficiency of the Bruneians understanding and conversing in the English Language as well as its education system is based on the UK educational system."

Graham Hasting-Evans, Managing Director of NOCN said on the collaboration:

“The creation of a regional centre in Brunei strengthens further the ongoing relationship between NOCN and Nisai and widens NOCN’s reach overseas”

PTB’s Managing Director Pg Hishamuddin Alli remarked:

“PTB is committed into providing means for career development and progression for its trainees and not just skills to get a job. We look into providing career development as part of life-long learning and increasing productivity through various programmes for companies as well as for the workforce in Brunei Darussalam”.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
