A global leader in education
Singapore is a global education leader, ranked best in the world for the quality of its educational system by the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report. Singapore also scores highly in the McKinsey Report for having one of the world's best-performing school systems, and produces students who consistently top world rankings for literacy, reading, mathematics and science.
Always with a finger on the pulse, education events in Singapore such as the Global Educational Leadership Conference and the Asia Pacific Education Assessment Conference keep industry players up-to-date on leadership trends and the best pedagogy practices of the day.
A school for the region
Singapore's expertise in education is complemented by international partners such as Intel, Cisco and Microsoft, who work closely with local partners in developing educational systems. As one of the four founding countries of the Assessment & Teaching of 21st Century Skills (ATC21S), Singapore works closely with these edu-tech giants to develop future-ready education systems.
Reinventing Education is a partnership between the Singapore government and IBM's Institute of System Sciences to reinvent new ways of using IT in schools.
Bridging bright minds
A hub for developing thought leaders, Singapore is the regional base for international educational providers such as Pearson, Knowledge Universe and Kumon. Home-grown tertiary education giant RafflesEducationCorp is the largest private education group in Asia-Pacific, with an extensive network of 34 colleges across 31 cities from its headquarters in Singapore.
Our Focus Moving Ahead
Inspiring the next generation
Educational technology is the buzzword for the future, with digital devices driving the way forward. At the International Conference on Teaching and Learning with Technology 2015, 2000 delegates from around the world convened to connect and collaborate on IT use in education. The international attention demonstrates a compelling global interest in MICE events showcasing educational technology. With an increasing interest in broad-based and holistic learning, MICE events that can grow relevant content and connect educators in this field will be highly anticipated.
