Speedwing Training (Asia) Pte Ltd, a locally-owned company in Singapore, provides global-learning opportunities for students and young professionals.
Initially established with the objective of providing training to staff working in travel agencies, Speedwing adopted curriculums similar to those prepared by British Airways, which also set the examination and certification recognised worldwide.
Over the years, the company adapted to the changing market trends and moved on to provide a more practical and rounded approach to training through organising overseas job attachments.
In 1999, Speedwing, with the directions of its associate company, Gasi Holidays, began to facilitate international education travel to students in Singapore through various overseas education trips and exchange programs.
It then established partnerships with several international cultural exchange organisations and from thereon, Speedwing has been administrating a wide variety of exchange programs for students and young adults in Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
In 2005 and 2006, Speedwing Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Speedwing Australia Pty Ltd were respectively incorporated to meet the increasing demand and interest from students and young professionals in these 2 countries. These expansion plans remain true to Speedwing’s vision and goal of providing global-learning and cultural exchange opportunities for students and young adults.
In 2009, Speedwing joined more than 550 members and 120 other countries to become a member of World Youth Student & Educational Travel Confederation (WYSE Travel Confederation) that provides international travel experiences to over 10 million youth and students each year.
Today, Speedwing is continuing its learning journey as it aims to offer more global-learning opportunities for students and young people in the region and beyond.
