The British Council is deploying a new Teaching Centre Management system for its global operations.
Following a tender procurement process Prolinx in partnership with Sky Software will supply the system.
The British Council’s teaching and exams business offers English language courses in 102 centres around the world and administers more than 2 million exams, including the International English Language Testing System Exams (IELTS) in more than 100 countries every year.
The Teaching Centre Management System project was established to identify, purchase and deploy a new global system for teaching centre, student and learning management.
Mark Howard, recently appointed head of teaching at the British Council, said, "This project will help us deliver our strategic goals and underpin our growth plans in teaching. We are also excited about the potential to provide more effective customer self-service and to support efficiencies through the use of cloud technology.”
Work has now commenced on the development of the global system, with a team of technology and business experts from across Prolinx, Sky Software and the British Council conducting preliminary workshops in London. This will feed into the system development, targeted for completion in May 2014.
