Celebrating 60 years of Thai-Australian Relations

RMIT English Worldwide (REW) has proudly supported the relationship between Australia and Thailand through a number of initiatives during June and July 2012. 

Rachel Holthouse, CEO of RMIT Training and Grant Taylor, REW Commercial Director recently attended the Australian Alumni event hosted by Austcham and sponsored by REW, in Bangkok. 

The event included an afternoon tea and guest movie screening of ‘Red Dog’. The aim was to engage with alumni who have been in Australia and students who are planning to study abroad.   

They were among over 100 Alumni and friends who attended the event, including representatives from Austrade and the Australian Embassy.

REW was well presented at the event, having delivered a demonstration English language class at an earlier session and then addressing the group alongside HE Mr James Wise, the Australian Ambassador to Thailand. 

John Tyler, Director of REW Bangkok was pleased to support the event and showcase the high level of teaching students receive at REW Bangkok.

Ms Holthouse also referred to REW’s teaching resources and commitment to English language training for Thai students in her address. “The REW model allows students to undertake quality English language training in Australia at our Melbourne Language Centre or locally in Thailand through our partners, REW Bangkok.

“Regardless of their location, students are taught the academic and language skills they need to succeed in further study using our world-class curriculum, English Academic Passport,” Ms Holthouse said.

English Academic Passport is unique to REW and is the result of extensive consultation with students, English language teachers and university lecturers. The course content and assessment has been designed to meet the needs of international students on a pathway to university degrees and other higher education programs.

The suite of materials includes teacher and student books, eCourse materials, syllabus guides, audio, assessment and grammar guides, all published in-house by a dedicated production team.

“We are delighted to support the learning and development of Thai students. We have been operating in the region now for almost 10 years and have helped open doors for many Thai native speakers through English,” said Ms Holthouse.

REW is a division of RMIT Training, a company wholly owned by RMIT University.
