Currently, the project has been approved by the Sichuan Provincial Education Department and processed to the Ministry of Education of China for accreditation. He said our two colleges have similar professional settings and background as well as a good cooperative foundation, therefore, cooperation in other professional fields such as aero engine maintenance could hopefully be the next step. Gary Headland expressed his gratitude to our hospitality and he looked forward to in-depth cooperation by integrating communication and teaching. The two sides discussed further details on issues like the enrollment publicity, teaching designs, training and demonstration of teaching.
Background: In September 2017, our college signed an agreement with the Lincoln College Group of the United Kingdom to jointly organize an e-commerce professional education program, which aims at introducing excellent teaching resources and training outstanding talents for regional economic development. At present, the project has been approved by the Sichuan Provincial Department of Education and handed in to the Ministry of Education.
