Taiwan delegates visit Warwick Trident College

Leamington Editorial 31st Oct, 2023   0

EDUCATION leaders from Taiwan visited Warwick Trident College to find out more about its apprenticeships.

The 22 delegates from major universities in Taiwan were given a tour of the electric vehicle training facility as they found out more about the college’s electric vehicle apprenticeships.

The visit was recommended by The British Council to give delegates an insight into apprenticeships in high-tech and green technology due to Taiwan’s current focus on electric vehicles.

It came as part of a wider week-long visit to the UK to explore its Technical and Vocational Education and Training system and how this could be applied in Taiwan, as well as to develop knowledge on degree apprenticeships.

College spokesperson Ben Fairhurst said: “It was a privilege and honour to welcome such high-profile visitors to Warwick Trident College to discuss our work in technical education.

“We pride ourselves on the strong relationships we have with employers right across the region, particularly in prominent sectors such as electric vehicles, to ensure we are delivering the skills to meet their current and future needs.

“The delegates were extremely engaged and it was a fantastic opportunity to not only showcase the work we are doing at WCG, but develop connections with our international partners in Taiwan.

“We hope that our visitors have gained an insight into the UK’s TVET delivery which will have a positive impact on their own education system.”

Yang Yu-Hui from Taiwan’s Ministry of Education added: “This visit represents a significant milestone for both the United Kingdom and Taiwan in the field of technological and vocational education.”
