London-based education provider Twin Group has continued to realize the global ambitions of the UK Government’s Turing program by successfully expanding its student placements for the program to Thailand.

However, the group has expressed concern that the UK’s exit from the Erasmus program has led to a sharp decline in European students doing reciprocal internships in the UK due to increased bureaucracy.

Twin is calling on the government to remove the obstacles as UK companies in the host cities see sales fall as a result and employers may miss out on talented recruits to fill skill shortages. European cities like Dublin, where Twin has a learning center, are the beneficiaries instead.

Twin’s expansion into Thailand has resulted in British students gaining valuable experience teaching English as a foreign language. They are part of a cohort of 130 students that Twin has placed in new and established destinations such as France, Malta and Spain this year.

Younger cohorts have gained work experience that has led them to secure employment in sectors such as digital marketing and hospitality either in the UK or with migrant employers abroad.

Students also include participants from disadvantaged backgrounds, and according to UCAS, more than 19,000 (48%) of the placements approved for funding this year are for learners from similarly disadvantaged backgrounds.

The Twin Group also advises further education colleges on their Turing programs to ensure that the quality of the partners abroad, the internships, the accommodation and the study support are of a high standard.

To escape the British winter, internships are always possible

Students can apply for an internship abroad as part of the Turing program at any time during the academic year.

That includes fleeing the UK for sunnier climes in February and March next year (2023) without having to worry about heating and food bills.

Caroline Fox, CEO of Twin Group, said:

“Over the past 18 months, the Turing program has become truly global in terms of available destinations for student participants, and the Twin Group has been pleased to play an important role.

“We want colleges and students to know that students can apply to join the program at any time, not just at the beginning of the academic year, and have an opportunity that could transform their career prospects.”

Caroline Fox added:

“While the Twin Group is an undisputed supporter of the Turing programme, there is no denying that the UK’s exit from the Erasmus program has not been painless. Overcoming the resulting bureaucracy to allow European students to enter our country has become so difficult that schools and colleges across the continent are choosing to go elsewhere, eroding the ‘soft power’ of Britain and the host cities here economically harms.”

The Twin Group delivery model was to work with FE colleges and others to offer Turing programs abroad to students in attractive locations such as Dublin, Seville, Milan, Lisbon and Valencia. France and Malta have been added to the target list this year.

Many students secure jobs as a direct result of internships within the program. Internships with Twin’s employer partners can be found in industries such as digital, digital marketing, hospitality and tourism.

Other benefits of the program for students include employability skills development, cultural awareness, affordability of the program and the opportunity to speak a foreign language.

Students do not have to pay additional tuition fees as educational institutions are expected to waive internship fees. Travel expenses are covered by the program and students are eligible for a living allowance of up to £335 per month. For students from disadvantaged backgrounds this can rise to £455 per month.

The popularity of Thai food in the United States has exploded in the 21st century; According to several reports, this is because the Thai government has started a program to train chefs in Thailand and then send them to the rest of the world.

*Names have been changed

SINGAPORE and PHNOM PENH: For some of the people bending over computers and typing Angry, sweet-talking strangers thousands of miles away what drives them is the threat of torture – beatings, starvation, even electrocution. For others, it’s the promise of a promotion, cash rewards, or even the promise of drugs.

The spartan room they are in is newly renovated, with rows of office desks. Dozens of cellphones — maybe eight to ten per person — sit in front of them as they type.

They come from many places like China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and even Turkey. Singapore is also represented. Most of them are men, but there are also some women.

A man is talking to a woman from Singapore; she thinks he lives there too. She mentions that she’s about to go out and asks what he’s doing. He immediately does a Google search for “Singapore weather” and then replies, “I slipped in the rain earlier. Be careful.”

Another man murmurs to his colleague, “She’s upset that I mention cryptocurrency. How should I react?” His colleague looks at the conversation on WhatsApp and then types an answer.

In a smaller space separate from everyone else, everything that appears on their screens, whether desktop or phone, is monitored in real-time by a “supervisor” some have never met. He or she reports to one more person in a shadowy, seemingly endless chain of command.

In another room is the “Marketing” department, where a few people compile voice memos, images, and videos.

One of them is editing a video of a slender young woman cooking fish head curry. It might be sent to an unsuspecting chat partner somewhere in the US or Australia. In the meantimea picture of an empty fridge is sent to one of the men sitting outside, who in turn forwards it to awHe’s been talking to Oman in Malaysia for weeks.

“I just spent the afternoon cleaning my parents’ fridge,” he types. “What have you done today?”

UK Export Secretary Marcus Fysh this week joins a delegation of 18 UK companies visiting Thailand to showcase innovative ways of delivering quality education. They offer AI, real-time data, teacher training and language learning services.

The delegation will be exhibiting at BETT Asia, the premier EdTech summit in Asia Pacific. Attendees will hear about the future of learning from leading academic institutions, education ministers and cutting-edge technology companies.

The DIT UK Pavilion at BETT Asia will be the focal point during the event, with 12 UK EdTech companies exhibiting under the UK Pavilion and a further 6 at the wider show including companies from the Northern Power House.

The UK has a lot to offer as an established and fast-growing hub for emerging EdTechs. Over 1,000 innovative EdTech and education supply companies are based here.

Two countries in Southeast Asia – Vietnam and Indonesia – have been named among the top five priority countries and regions in the UK’s International Education Strategy. The aim is to increase education exports to £35 billion per year and increase the number of international students in the UK to 600,000 per year by 2030.

Southeast Asia is an important educational partner for Great Britain. The region has contributed more than £800m in education exports over the past 5 years, making it the third largest global education exporter after China, the Middle East and North Africa.

Marcus Fysh, Parliamentary Secretary of State (Minister for Exports), Department for International Trade said:

The UK education sector is one of the jewels in our services export crown and I am delighted to see so many UK companies here at BETT Asia. The educational services that UK companies are able to provide globally will greatly benefit student outcomes and inclusion, and strengthen partnerships with schools, colleges, universities and industry in the ASEAN region.

We want more UK companies of all sizes to enter the global education market and it is through shows like BETT Asia that companies can really thrive and sell their services globally. When more companies export, jobs and growth for the economy are created.

Natalie Black, His Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for Asia Pacific said:

I am delighted to welcome a delegation of fantastic UK EdTech companies to Thailand to explore growth opportunities and new markets.

The UK is known worldwide for its quality education and research. COVID-19 has transformed teaching and learning around the world, including in Asia Pacific. We strive to play an active role in supporting recovery at all levels of education.

Salesians focus on ensuring poor youth have a chance at education

THAILAND

(Mission Newswire) The Salesian-run St. Dominic Savio School in Bangkok, Thailand, recently celebrated its 60th anniversary. On this occasion, Cardinal Francis Xavier Kriengsak Kovithavanij, Archbishop of Bangkok, presided, together with Mons. Joseph Prathan Sridarunsil, Bishop of Surat Thani, and Mons. Silvio Siripong Charatsri, Bishop of Chanthaburi. Salesian missionaries and representatives of Salesian groups in Thailand also attended.

As part of the celebrations, a theatrical performance of “A Moment to Remember: Once Upon a Time in the Heart” was held to promote the values ​​of St. John Bosco and Salesian education. Other activities included a short performance of school history, tributes to supporters and benefactors of the education center and an afternoon basketball tournament.

“The Salesians are primarily focused on making sure poor youth have a chance at education,” said Father Gus Baek, director of Salesian Missions, the US development arm of the Salesians of Don Bosco. “Education together with social programs in Thailand give poor and disadvantaged youth a chance for a better future.”

One of the best-known programs is the Don Bosco Technological College in Bangkok, which has been ensuring that poor youth have access to higher education since 1949. Its educational programs enable youth to acquire the skills they need to find and keep stable employment. To do this successfully, the College has developed partnerships that help train youth in employment sectors that require skilled labor and have jobs available to hire youth immediately upon graduation.

Thailand has shown remarkable economic growth over the past 20 years, reducing its poverty rate from 21 percent in 2000 to 10.9 percent in 2018, according to the World Bank. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a sharp increase in the country’s “poor target group” (those who hold government-issued social cards), as noted by the Thai People Map and Analytics Platform. Almost 43,000 more people are considered poor in the country, according to the latest report. There are a total of 1.03 million people in this target group.

Although the country made strides in reducing poverty, improving nutrition and meeting the basic needs of its residents prior to the pandemic, inequality is still pervasive.

Here is the key news investors need to start their trading day:

1. Still on shaky ground

After two rapid rallies, US stock markets turned negative again on Wednesday. Towards the end of the day, the Bulls put up a small fight, but it wasn’t enough to continue the winning streak. The common take on Wall Street is that overall we’re still in a stock fever, especially as the Federal Reserve aggressively pushes rate hikes to cool inflation. Earnings season starts in earnest next week, but until then, investors’ eyes are on the jobs market. According to the ADP, private companies added 208,000 jobs last month, beating estimates. The government, meanwhile, will report monthly employment data on Friday. A hot labor market is likely to fuel the Fed’s rationale for another rate hike. Read live market updates here.

2. The oil policy

OPEC+ oil-producing nations on Wednesday agreed to the group’s biggest supply cut since 2020 to limit supply as prices have fallen amid growing concerns over a slowdown in global demand. The decision came at a moment of political tension. The United States is in the midst of a tense election campaign that will determine the balance of power in Congress. The move drew anger from President Joe Biden’s administration and could result in a major backlash for key OPEC nation Saudi Arabia, which also considers itself a US ally. The White House said a “disappointed” Biden would consult with Congress on ways to limit OPEC’s power in deciding energy prices. “Today’s dog whistle can be interpreted as a sign that the President will not necessarily stand in the way of a vote on the bill that would declare OPEC a cartel and subject its members to the Sherman antitrust rules,” the strategists at RBC Capital said.

Elon Musk and Twitter have not reached a final agreement, but there have been several important developments behind the scenes of their negotiations. The judge leading the lawsuit between the two sides in the Delaware Chancery Court said Wednesday that she is still preparing for the trial, which is scheduled to begin Oct. 17, as neither side has asked for a delay. According to Reuters, Musk’s testimony in the case was scheduled for Thursday, but both sides agreed to postpone it while talks continue. The news service also said, citing sources, Apollo Global Management and Sixth Street Partners have ended talks to jointly provide up to $1 billion to support the $44 billion deal.

4. Ex-Uber security chief found guilty

A federal jury found Joe Sullivan, a former top security chief at Uber, guilty of covering up a 2016 cybersecurity breach that affected the personal information of 57 million drivers and customers. “Sullivan worked diligently to hide the data breach from the Federal Trade Commission and took steps to prevent the hackers from being caught,” said Stephanie Hinds, US Attorney for the Northern District of California. Uber has not disclosed the incident for a year. It’s rare for cybersecurity executives to be prosecuted in similar circumstances, so the case could mark a turning point. When Sullivan was indicted in 2020, prosecutors accused him of paying the criminals $100,000 in bitcoin while having them sign non-disclosure agreements that falsely said they did not steal any data during the hack. Uber had previously paid nearly $150 million to settle claims that it had taken too long to uncover the breach. The company reached a settlement in July to avoid criminal charges and agreed to cooperate in prosecuting Sullivan. He faces a possible five-year prison sentence.

Shocking news from Thailand: A gunman killed at least 24 children and 11 adults in an attack that started on a day care center in the northeast of the country. The suspect opened fire, killing several people as he drove away before returning home to kill his wife and child, police said. He then took his own life, they added. Authorities identified the man as a former police officer. According to the Associated Press, firearm deaths in Thailand are lower than in countries like the United States and Brazil, but higher than in places with strict gun laws like Singapore and Japan. The rate of firearm-related deaths in 2019 was about 4 per 100,000, compared to about 11 per 100,000 in the US and almost 23 per 100,000 in Brazil,” the news service wrote.

HappyFresh has closed its operations in Malaysia and Thailand after seven years. Meanwhile, David Lim, SVP, Marketing, is also said to be in discussions about his future role. He joined from Scoot in 2018 where he was VP of Marketing. MARKETING INTERACTIVE understands that several members of the marketing team are affected.

On Facebook, HappyFresh said that due to the current economic situation, it “has no choice but to shut down operations [in Malaysia and Thailand]effective immediately”. It thanked consumers for their support and HappyFresh’s support in providing jobs for over 850 employees during this time.

As for its operations in Indonesia, HappyFresh recently received fresh funding from investors to restart its online grocery stores in the market. According to the company, Indonesia is the largest and most profitable market among the three countries where HappyFresh operates. Indonesian operations resumed with the technology division led by co-founder and CTO Fajar Budiprasetyo.

Since the decision, HappyFresh has also parted ways with its creative agency Imaginary Friends in Malaysia, while talks are still ongoing with its PR partner PRecious Communications. HappyFresh still works with Small People Production for creative assignments in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, just last month the team unveiled a new dancing disembodied legs spot starring up-and-coming Malaysian rap artist Hullera to showcase their new offering HappyFresh Supermarket. In May, it urged Malaysians to share their #FrequencyOfFresh by releasing a Spotify track in which a woman teaches consumers how to tell the freshness of different products by sounds. It also drew inspiration from in-law relationships, releasing a cheeky regional campaign in 2020 called Make In-Laws Happy.

HappyFresh’s work for its loyalty program was also convincing last year MARKETING INTERACTIVE‘s Jury at the Asia eCommerce Awards 2021 and received Gold for Best eCommerce Loyalty Program. It also won Silver for Best Ecommerce Campaign – Influencer and Bronze for Best Ecommerce Campaign – Content Marketing at the awards.

Earlier, Bloomberg reported that HappyFresh has suspended its grocery deliveries in certain areas of Jakarta and that some senior employees have suspended their daily duties.

In a company statement, CEO Guillem Segarra, CFO Frederic Verin and COO Christoph Krauss have now returned to their daily tasks. According to HappyFresh, last week’s restructuring resulted in the permanent resignation of three former board members, namely Kai-Kevin Gotthard Kux, Lee Jung An and David Keller.

As part of the restructuring, it will work with venture debt funds Genesis, Innoven and Mars to ensure operations in Indonesia provide a strong path to profitability by 2022. The venture debt funds have also hired American risk consulting firm Kroll to help with the restructuring.

Filippo Candrini, MD of HappyFresh Indonesia said, “This is not an easy achievement and will allow our operations to resume in Indonesia with greater stability in the coming months and years.”

He added that during the past few weeks, while operations were suspended, HappyFresh received numerous comments from customers on various social media platforms, expressing their confidence in our service offering while demanding that the service be resumed as soon as possible becomes.

“Having been part of the business for the past seven years this has given us great motivation to launch a comeback, stronger than ever, to ensure the business operates at a higher level of efficiency while our customers can continue to enjoy their favorite grocery service again,” he added. In the meantime, HappyFresh has not disclosed the monetary value of its new financing. The company was founded in 2014 and to date has raised $97 million through equity and debt financing.

Last July, the company raised $65 million in Series D funding and had planned to double brand awareness across all countries with a hyper-local strategy that resonates with local audiences. Also in February, the company unveiled the HappyFresh supermarket, which expands the accessibility of fresh and dry groceries by significantly expanding its presence in dark shops in the region. Nonetheless, the economic headwinds have been a challenge for food delivery services. In August, Grab closed its dark store operations in Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines to cut costs and streamline delivery operations. It is a supporter of HappyFresh.
