‘Flex­i­bil­ity is key to over­seas growth’

TES (Times Education Supplement) - - FURTHER -

Dud­ley Col­lege cur­rently op­er­ates in China, In­dia, Saudi Ara­bia, South Africa, Pak­istan, In­done­sia and across Europe, of­fer­ing a wide va­ri­ety of tech­ni­cal and aca­demic ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes.

San­jeev Ohri, the col­lege’s di­rec­tor of world­wide op­er­a­tions, says that part of the ap­peal of a Bri­tish ed­u­ca­tion in the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity is that it em­pha­sises em­ployer links. “I think one of the things that col­leges over­seas and the or­gan­i­sa­tions we’re work­ing with find is that we’re quite flex­i­ble in terms of our ap­proach,” he ex­plains.

“It’s not some­thing that’s ac­tu­ally set in stone…what they re­ally like is the em­ployer links that we’ve got. We sit down around the ta­ble with em­ploy­ers who are look­ing for spe­cific vo­ca­tional pro­grammes, so that when you’re ac­tu­ally in a vo­ca­tional set­ting, you know the cur­ricu­lum is ac­tu­ally de­signed around the needs of the em­ployer.”
