Australian Centre for Education (ACE)
The Australian Centre for Education (ACE), established in 1992 by IDP Education, is a leader in English Language Teaching services in Cambodia.
“CSR sits among our top priorities and we have a strong commitment to contribute to help further develop this concept among youths in Cambodia.” Mao Sreng, Country Director of IDP Education in Cambodia and ACE.
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) and the Australian Centre for Education (ACE) launched a ‘Digital English Scholarships’ program to support the on-going learning of grade 12 students by distance in the face of the COVID-19 situation while they are preparing for 2020 graduation exams.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed between MoEYS and ACE in May 2020, will see the provision of 2,000 scholarships for students preparing for their upcoming High School Graduation Exams, to receive digital learning training and to study English virtually from home.
The Digital English Scholarships initiative is introduced as part of the ACE Corporate Social Responsibility Program and to compliment the Royal Government of Cambodia’s efforts to assist Cambodian students to achieve a higher level of proficiency in the English language, through E-learning and Distance Learning programmes during this difficult time of COVID-19. ACE is underwriting this part-time scholarship program with the support of its staff, teachers, relevant stakeholders and institutions.
“Australia has a long history of assisting Cambodian education. This is continuing in this unprecedented and challenging time. I commend Australian institutions such as ACE for doing a fantastic job to adapt and provide quality education to students in Cambodia during COVID-19,” Australian Ambassador to Cambodia, HE Pablo Kang.
ACE Offers 200 Full Scholarships to enable students during Covid-19
With the support of IDP Education, in April 2020 ACE announced 200 full scholarships for one year study at any of ACE’s six campuses in Cambodia, under the ACE Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Education Initiative.
“By offering full time scholarships, ACE continues to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to providing quality education during this difficult period, and to helping students both academically and financially,” Sreng Mao, Country Director of IDP Education and ACE.
To offer opportunities to other students, the 200 full scholarships for one year study are being made available through the ACE CSR Education Initiative for the following programs: Children’s Program (8-10 years old), Young Learners’ Program (11-14 years old), General English Program (15 and above) and the Advanced English Program and English for Study Abroad (adults).
