An international delegation from Indonesia is today welcomed by Loughborough College for a week of activities set to further develop their education partnership.
Director of Business Development Gemma Knott visited the country recently on a British Council-backed trip to explore how the College can work with Semerang State Polytechnic and educators from the Polytechnic will now spend several days discovering how to enhance their creative media curriculum and improve the employability skills of their graduates.
Mr Budi Prasetya and Mr Arif Widhi Hatmojo arrived at Loughborough College on Monday morning and will be joined by colleagues Ms Louisa Silitonga, Ms Pasa Nurrianai Monti and Mr Supriyadi on Tuesday and Wednesday.
"Following on from my funded visit to Indonesia in February, we are delighted to commence a new partnership with Semarang State Polytechnic through the British Council International Skills Partnership project,” said Gemma Knott.
“Our delegates are here to shadow our excellent creative media team at Loughborough College and will enjoy a bespoke week of training including masterclasses, English language sessions, shadowing a range of classes and meeting with students.
“We continue to grow our international projects as we recognise the importance they contribute not only in terms of providing a global outlook for our staff and students but also in sharing our good practise with institutions from around the world who seek to replicate our excellent teaching and learning methods.
“This year alone we have developed new projects across Panama, Bangladesh, Qatar, Jordan, Vietnam and in India.
