BeGo – A bespoke education and lifestyle brand
BeGo in focus
In 2014, LC Venture made its largest complete acquisition and acquired BeGo – short for ‘Be Empowered, Go Beyond’ – is an education and lifestyle brand. Established almost a decade ago, BeGo Education is a bespoke education consultancy firm which offers unique and customised services assisting predominantly local Chinese families to find an international education pathway that suits their children, both in Beijing and/or overseas.
BeGo vision is to enable students to connect to like-minded people from all over the world during this shared formative time, whether while in international schools in China or boarding schools and universities in the UK. We hope to empower them to become world changers in positions of influence and have a sense of purpose bigger than themselves.
BeGo’s services are carefully developed to equip and empower students to assist them to attain their educational goals. This includes developing their overall skills and abilities, thus helping them to realise their full potential.
BeGo provide a full range of services including admission to international schools in Beijing, UK boarding schools and universities. To date, we have successfully assisted over 100 students enrol in UK boarding schools, such as Stowe, Harrow, Shrewsbury and Dulwich, top UK universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, London School of Economics, as well as international schools in Beijing. The bespoke support services include drawing up a personal and customised education plan for each child, complete with initial diagnostic assessments and bespoke tuition.
Designed for students between the ages of 8-16, our Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a bespoke road map for each individual student. Involving realistic goal setting and strategies, the IDP seeks to map out a student’s steps towards their educational goals. The Individual Education Plan (IEP) goes hand in hand with a student’s IDP to ensure that students have the abilities necessary to reach their goals. It is specifically designed to meet students’ learning needs. This combination ensures that they are successful in their dream school, university and in life.
The tuition classes are offered by highly qualified tutors from overseas, particularly the UK. The classes incorporate student centered and personalised learning, standard test practices and assessments. Departing students are also given pre-orientation workshops, cross-cultural family tours and work placements/internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in the UK.
Every year language and personal development courses as well as summer and winter programmes at top British schools are offered. Private tuition and tailor-made business visits and family tours to the UK are also available and promote strong family bonds while studying English and learning about the British culture.
The excellent team at BeGo comprises of experienced educators and education consultants all with overseas education. They are accredited by the British Council and are very briefed on the UK education curriculum, UK education system and admission processes to top independent schools and Higher Education institutes in the UK. Their bilingual and hands-on experience with international education as a whole, and the UK education in particular gives them that extra edge in bridging the existing gap between the West and the East, particularly in education.
BeGo has been recognised by many organisations for the excellence of their services and was selected as a finalist in the British Business Company of the Year Award in 2016 by the British Chamber of Commerce in China.
Currently, BeGo operates from offices in London, Beijing, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. In the past five years, it has grown to over 15 cities in China, serving over 100 Chinese families with a combined net worth of RMB 1 billion. BeGo has an education portfolio of 50 million RMB.
