The British College (TBC) had successfully completed its first Annual Advisory Board Meeting to discuss the direction, development, planning and continuing strategy of the college. The advisory board itself includes several prestigious figures from both the UK and Nepal, representing the partnership between the two countries that The British College symbolises. The Advisory Board Meeting discussed how the college plans to proceed in its goal to continue providing high quality education in Nepal.
Advisory Board Members:
1. Lord Sandwich, The Earl of Sandwich, a member in the House of Lords
2. Dr (h.c) Chiran Thapa, Advisor
3. Dr Arjun Karki
4. Paul Cleves MBE, CEO of Foodlines and highly active Philanthropist, founder of Saigon Children’s Charity
5. Anthony Wieler, Vice-president of the Britain – Nepal Chamber of Commerce
6. Rajen Kandel, CEO and Chair of the Advisory Board
Key points from the discussion were the perception of British Education in Nepal; further scholarship and support for students from marginalised communities; and the future expansion of TBC. Also, as The British College has international students from 6 different countries, it was discussed about expanding their number. Overall, the advisory board was impressed with how the college was proceeding and fully recognises that the college is fulfilling its target to provide high quality British education to the needs of Nepali students.
