Col­lege wel­comes Far East teach­ers on a mis­sion

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
