ABE, the Ofqual Accredited Awarding body which specialises in business qualifications, has signed an MOU with Telfort Education Group, a leading education company in China. With 20 years’ experience in China, Telfort has established a strong reputation and brand name within the China’s vocational education sector, the study-abroad education communities and among government authorities.

The MOU will see Telfort build and invest in teaching facilities for ABE’s diploma training programs at authorized Chinese partner schools’ campuses.


Speaking at a special ceremony held at Telfort’s Beijing Youth Politics College, Mr Brian Yang, CEO, Telfort, said, “ABE and Telfort are two strong brand names working together. Telfort has over twenty years’ experience delivering business education at secondary level. Our commitment to providing a relevant and stimulating education fits very well with ABE’s ethos.  We think that every student – no matter which discipline they specialise in – should have an understanding of business practices.  Additionally, ABE’s focus on lifelong learning provides people with an opportunity to develop professionally throughout their career.”

Gareth Robinson, CEO, ABE, said, “ABE is dedicated to improving people’s career prospects through education. We provide a cost effective way for people to gain qualifications which enable them to progress onto degree programs or enter the workplace with the skills they need to succeed. We are excited to be working with a quality education provider in China.”

ABE qualifications will be available through Telfort in 2017.
