Jason West is an accomplished leader in English language teaching and TESOL/EALD, both as a teacher and leader, with more than 15 years of experience. Jason has led Academic English programs in both a local Australian context, and in a transnational context at a joint venture school in China. Jason supports the ELICOS sector through his involvement with a number of communities of practice/industry events, and has presented at a number of international and local conferences. In his role as Director of Studies at UTS College, Jason manages a teaching team dedicated to supporting the language needs of international students, mostly from SE Asia and the Indian subcontinent, who are heading to UTS to pursue their career and life ambitions. This includes leading and managing the delivery of the college developed Academic English curriculum via the Canvas LMS, for both face to face, and live online teaching modes. Aligned to the UTS 2027 vision, in addition to leading the Sydney based college team, Jason supports Academic Managers across the transnational partner network, based in China (EIC, SILC), (South) Korea (IEN), Vietnam (ACET), Myanmar (AEC) and the UTS College Sri Lanka who all deliver the UTS College’s English curriculum. Jason will share his insights on how to drive high quality outcomes and standardisation of delivery regardless of location.
