UK NARIC has set up new partnerships with experienced international educationists in Australia and India, to strengthen our support for members in Australasia and South Asia, and further develop our global presence.
We have appointed Sydney-based Dr Greg Keaney to act as an independent consultant for UK NARIC in Australia and New Zealand. Greg is an international education professional with 30 years experience.
In India, our new independent consultants are New Delhi-based JJ Nandi and Satish Sharma of MB Educational Concepts (MBEC). JJ and Satish have operated in international education for over 20 years, including work with the British Council in New Delhi.
There are opportunities to e-meet Greg, JJ and Satish as they host live online discussion panels from Australia and India as part of our Winter World Forum, running 30 November to 10 December.
Greg has worked in international education and English language projects with universities, ELICOS and VET colleges, school systems, UK education development charities and TNE programmes.
JJ and Satish have wide experience in education projects funded by the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and the governments of India, the UK, and other countries. Country experience includes Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
The appointment of Greg, JJ and Satish will enable us to broaden our offering in Australasia and South Asia, including training, qualification benchmarking, the Transnational Education Quality Benchmark, TVET Quality Review and Accreditation, and enhanced membership options.
We expect that these new regional support bases will encourage more institutions to take up UK NARIC membership, joining our global network that now spans 62 countries.
For existing members, these new arrangements are additional resource and do not disturb or replace your normal relationship with your Account Manager for renewals and other account support.
If you would like to chat/call/Skype/Zoom with Greg or JJ and Satish, to discuss your situation and share thoughts and resources, then Greg can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org and JJ and Satish can be emailed at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
