Shenton Education Group (SEG, Myanmar) and Singapore Education Consulting Group (SECG, Singapore) signed an exclusive MOU to bring together education policy planners, implementers and school leaders in a unique partnership to bring the same values and success to Human Capital Development in Myanmar. SEG-SECG’s partnership of experts are dedicated to help raising international educational standards through best-of-class planning and outstanding implementation.

YANGON and SINGAPORE – Singapore has established a global reputation for its educational planning, standards, and delivery across the whole spectrum of education from pre-primary, primary, secondary, post-secondary to higher education. Major international comparative assessments e.g. PISA and TIMSS show that Singapore students score highly not only in mathematics and science, but also in creative problem-solving.

SEG-SECG strategic partnership is formed to support Myanmar’s human capital development across the whole spectrum of education by leveraging upon Singapore’s experience in various areas. For instance,  Singapore’s special schools for the Arts, Mathematics & Science and Technology have pushed the frontiers of traditional school education. In technical education, Singapore is recognized alongside Switzerland and Germany as having one of the most rigorous yet efficient training systems geared to the economy.  The successful implementation of the Institutes of Technical Education (ITE) and the Polytechnics help Singapore to achieve one of the world’s lowest youth unemployment rates. In higher education, the local universities enjoy high rankings in Asia and internationally.

Alongside this strategic partnership, SEG is honoured to have both Professor S Gopinathan (Partner of SECG) and Dr N Varaprasad (Partner of SECG) join our panel of distinguished advisors.

Professor S Gopinathan is a pioneer in Singapore’s education policy and practice planning, and in teacher education. He served as the Dean of the School of Education/ National Institute of Education, Singapore (1994 – 2000) and was appointed Professor of Education in April 1999. He is presently an Adjunct Professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

Dr. N Varaprasad has 38 years of experience in higher education, equally split between polytechnic-level education and university education. He was the founding Principal/ CEO of Temasek Polytechnic and Deputy President at the National University of Singapore. He later became CEO of the National Library Board for a further 6 years, overseeing National Library and the network of public library in Singapore.

"The mission of the SEG-SECG partnership is to contribute towards human capital development in Myanmar, leveraging upon Singapore’s public education experiences over the last 52 years. We are seeking a wide range of collaborations with institutional partners to make available our expertise and resources, to apply in Myanmar’s educational settings and to help solve existing education-related challenges." said Amos Rao, Senior Vice President of Shenton Education Group (Myanmar).

Dr. N Varaprasad, Partner of Singapore Education Consulting Group (Singapore) commented, “Through our partnership with Shenton Education Group, SECG will be looking forward to provide Myanmar institutional partners, with actionable insights that will allow them to help stakeholders, at all levels. We foresee exciting outcomes and look forward to contribute our experiences, towards  Myanmar’s human capital development.”
