Business Development Officer ( six month - temporary)



  • Since opening in 2002, ACET Vietnam has grown in size and reputation to become known as the leading provider of Academic English Pathways and IELTS Preparation Programs. These pathways and programs have been the starting point of long academic careers providing language training and test preparation for thousands of students helping them to successfully gain entrance to numerous overseas undergraduate and postgraduate study programs.

  • ACET programs are intensive and demanding from day one. The ACET program simulates studying overseas so all students, regardless of level, through the medium of English using mainly INSEARCH textbooks. ACET students are taught language and study skills to the same rigorous standards that are applied in Australia.  On enrolling at ACET all students are required to sign a declaration that they will abide by ACET’s strict rules of enrolment in regard to study and attendance.

  • ACET courses are extremely successful in preparing students for the IELTS test. Over 80% of ACET students achieve their desired IELTS Band Score. However, the curriculum designed and developed by INSEARCH focuses on English for Academic purposes. ACET has never been a quick-fix ‘cram school’ focused only on exam preparation. ACET takes a long-term educational approach which prioritises the language and study skills required for successful transition to life and study at international university courses overseas.

  • ACET’s highly trained Counsellors and support staff are on hand to ensure that students gain maximum learning from their course. The one-to-one advice and assistance offered is a significant feature of ACET’s success.

  • ACET is a cooperative venture between INSEARCH Institute at the University of Technology Sydney and IDP Education Pty Ltd. These are two international leading organizations prominent in international education and training. There are five ACET training centres, two in Hanoi and three in Ho Chi Minh City.

  • In addition to Academic English and IELTS preparation courses, in 2012, ACET extended its Academic Program pathway to young learners, with the First Steps program starting courses for students as young as 11 years old.
