In October last year, New Beacon Group signed an agreement with the University of Wolverhampton to deliver higher education courses at our Campus.
The Memorandum of Understanding acknowledges University of Wolverhampton’s plans to teach a range of degree level courses at the campus, including teaching and education, leadership and management, travel and tourism, hospitality, and computing. They will be taught, assessed and quality assured by the University of Wolverhampton.
This marked the beginning of New Beacon Group’s progress towards providing Higher Education to local and international students. With the support of our educational partners, we hope to design a unique and flexible model that delivers innovative higher education programs with the emphasis on entrepreneurship and innovation.
We firmly believe in the transformative value of international education and entrepreneurship in today’s globalised world. To achieve this, we work closely with our partners worldwide to international opportunities to maximise student’s learning needs
In October 2017, we founded the Beaconwood International Education Programme, to give 10 local students from Staffordshire the opportunity to experience the benefits of international education first-hand, as well as experiencing the culture and history of China. Students from Weston Road Academy, Blessed William Howard Catholic School and Newcastle-Under-Lyme College, went to China for 10 days; visiting Canadian International School of Beijing, Confucius International School, the Great Wall of China, Beijing Olympic Stadium and even visited some pandas at Chengdu Research Centre.
