Nisai Group to launch regional education centre in Brunei
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Nisai Group Ltd and local company Syarikat Pakar Tenaga Bersatu (PTB) for an agreed collaboration to launch 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 some countries in the Middle East. The centre will offer an alternative approach to learning through a virtual platform for academic Cambridge International IGCSEs and A Level subjects. Through its strategic partnership with NOCN, technical, vocational and work-based learning programmes will also be delivered online.
The signing took place during the Royal Institution 14th Global Congress and Conferment Event held at the Empire Hotel and Country Club to which both Nisai and PTB are members. The proposed Brunei Regional Hub is expected to recruit and employ at least 15 Bruneians in its primary stage. These employees will be given teacher/mentor training in order to serve and address learning requirements of Nisai’s clients.
Dhruv Patel, CEO of Nisai Group, commented: “What first attracted me to establish a regional hub in Brunei was the high standard of proficiency of Bruneians understanding and conversing in the English Language as well as their education system being based on the UK system.”
Graham Hasting-Evans, MD of NOCN, said: “The creation of a regional centre in Brunei strengthens further ongoing relationship between NOCN and Nisai and widens NOCN’s reach overseas.
Pg Hisamuddin, PTB’s MD remarks: “PTB is committed to 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.”
