Education MEC in Beijing to learn

2008-04-25 00:00

EDUCATION MEC Ina Cronje is currently in Beijing visiting training colleges and schools, in the hope of establishing new partnerships and exchange programmes.

Cronje and her team have visited three schools that use highly technological systems and teaching aids to improve practical skills.

She said starting partnerships in further education and training colleges with countries such as China will go a long way because there is a lot to learn.

She also said the visit seeks to strengthen and cement existing partnerships between schools in Beijing and in KwaZulu-Natal.

Two of the colleges visited focus on training in hospitality and tourism management, which will be used as a model for establishing the local eSayidi FET college.

A department spokesperson said the visit forms part of official celebrations of South Africa and China’s diplomatic relations.
