Our UK Education Specialist Agents training aims to foster knowledgeable agents and help them provide accurate information about education in the UK to their clients. It is open to all agents who have been a registered business in Korea for at least one year.
The training covers the UK education system and studying and living in the UK. Training is provided online and face-to-face. It is followed by a test, which is designed to make agents think about realistic situations, and to apply their training to those situations. This test itself is a good example of the UK educational approach, which focuses on teaching students how to think, not just what to think. The pass rate for the test in 2008 was 38%.
