The pioneering Education Perfect has teamed up with the South Australian government to help international students studying within the state.

 

 

In reaching a deal with the International Education Services department of SA’s Department for Education, Education Perfect (EP), will help the SA government improve access and learning for students in the state.

The world-leading online education platform will provide its services to up to 1200 international students studying in the Festival State.

The platform will be used for both distance learning and in the classroom, which will allow greater flexibility in the development and delivery of learning for international students. At the same time, it will ensure continuity amid such ongoing disruptions such as COVID-19, as well as for any other disruptions that may occur in the future.

The freshly minted agreement is, according to EP’s CEO Alex Burke, a significant step towards education in SA further embracing diversity, inclusion and language

“South Australia has a diverse population from a wide array of backgrounds, so it’s important that the educational needs of this group are all met,” Burke said.

“The agreement we’ve reached with the SA government is a significant and important step towards improving access to educational resources across the community to help bridge any gaps between cultures and learning,” he explained.

 

In addition to this development, the established curriculum will act as a basis to restructure the delivery of the ISEC program across all certified ISP government schools in South Australia.

 

Officials from South Australia’s Department for Education (DfE) praised EP’s role and how it would be of substantial value to international students, whose numbers are in the thousands, and whose constituents all make important contributions to the state’s society and economy.

“By partnering with Education Perfect, the DfE in South Australia is better able to provide support across the curriculum for International Students, both on arrival and for the duration of their studies,” they said. 

“The inbuilt support features, differentiation, text to speech and scaffolding of lessons are the key features identified by the participating schools.”

The DfE charted the three planned outcomes of the collaboration:

  • To build a thorough, reliable and healthy ISEC curriculum to be provided in each of our accredited sites while offering encouraging and quantifiable support for international students.
  • To develop a curriculum that can be provided both off and onshore, subject to the relevant restrictions and context.
  • To enable each school to boost and show the individualised culture of their school and customise programs to meet the needs of individual students, while maintaining uniformity across sites.

In addition to this development, the established curriculum will act as a basis to restructure the delivery of the ISEC program across all certified ISP government schools in South Australia.

EP is a leading digital education program, offering transformative online teaching and learning experiences for more than 1.2 million students in over 4000 schools across 80 different countries. 

The EP platform contains a cache of over 35,000 curriculum affiliated lessons in a range of subjects including Languages, English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Health and PE, and Digital technologies.
