We value our staff as our most important asset. In line with this, we provide our teaching staff with an attractive and motivating environment in order for them to give their best to the students. We also continually develop our staff by providing regular on-the-job training and further external training, using our considerable resources under the UCSI Group.
In our pursuit to provide our students with a world-class holistic education, we handpick qualified and dedicated teachers who have a genuine love for teaching and want to make teaching their career.
