CCCG Head of International Development honoured by South Korean government

Seungeun Chang, Head of International Development and Operations, was presented with a Merit Award at a ceremony at the South Korean Embassy on 7 August.

She received the award from South Korean Ambassador Yeocheol Yoon, on behalf Minister for Foreign Affairs Park Jin, at the event to commemorate World Korean Day.

Seungeun said: “I am very grateful for this recognition, which has made me reflect on my career and think about what I have done and what I would like to do next.

“I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved and the impact I have had through my work. I am so blessed and lucky to have so many kind people around me who inspire, support and cheer me along the way.”

Seungeun, who was born and raised in Seoul, has been responsible for overseeing the Turing Scheme, the UK’s global study and education programme, which has seen around 100 students and staff from across CCCG’s colleges visit South Korea.

While there they have had the opportunity to meet their South Korean peers, embrace the culture and gain valuable insights into education and careers in the country.

Seungeun and her team have also been responsible for providing a wide range of training opportunities for more than 400 South Korean students, including hosting 220 in London.

Seungeun moved to the UK and joined Westminster Kingsway College, part of CCCG, in June 2011 having previously worked for the British Council in South Korea for 11 years.

She said: “Looking back, the last 23 years of my career have been dedicated to promoting and exporting UK education. It has been such a privilege to connect and build partnerships and friendships between the people of my two loving countries.”
