A Global Agent Network

beo and Hands On Education Consultants were acquired by Kaplan International in 2012 and have largely been run as ‘stand-alone’ businesses. As part of a larger restructure we are looking to better integrate the companies and expand our agency business into more territories globally.

In order to facilitate this restructuring, we have renamed our beo Hong Kong company, ‘Education Tower’ which will hold the group's contracts and IP as well as being the parent company of beo Japan, Hands On Education Consultants and any future offices. We believe this new structure will streamline our operations and will be beneficial for both institutions and ourselves.

We have identified offices in Vietnam and the UK as areas of expansion in 2019 and we have committed to a strategy of opening 1-2 new offices a year from 2020-2023.

2020 Vision

Our future plan is to open offices in two strategic markets in Africa and the Middle East in early 2020.

We plan that these, and subsequent new offices will be established in emerging markets with a geographical spread across the Americas, Africa and the Middle East as well as expanding our presence in Asia.

Working Together

To better support our partners...

We are investing heavily in several online tools to enhance our recruitment infrastructure, such as a new mobile optimised CRM system, plus analytics and dashboards for partner institutions.

Given our planned expansion we would welcome a conversation about how we can work more closely together to support your recruitment needs.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us partnerships@educationtower.com if you would like to know more and start working with us.
