College welcomes Far East teachers on a mission
MACCLESFIELD continued to build on its strong links with China when two dozen education leaders paid a visit.
Twenty four teachers from colleges in China visited Macclesfield College to learn about the UK educational system and see it in action.
They toured the facilities, met tutors, dined in the college’s Silk Room restaurant and watched a Shakespeare drama performance prepared by performing arts students.
The visit was organised through Suman Education, a joint venture between China and the UK.
Rachel Kay, chief executive and principal at Macclesfield College, said: “It was great to welcome international college leaders to Cheshire and our college. The visit gave our students and staff great insight into the Chinese educational system and culture.
“It was also interesting to find out that despite differences, our syllabus aligned in certain areas such as engineering, which also received amazing feedback from the visitors.”
Zhu Yonglin, vocational leader at Jiangyin Secondary Vocational School, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed visiting Macclesfield College and meeting both students and teachers and seeing the opportunities the college has to offer.
“The performing arts and catering students were fantastic. Thank you to Macclesfield College for hosting an informative and rewarding day.”
