IMI/College China Visit a Success

IMI/College China Visit a Success

11/01/2018

A delegation from EMTEC Colleges Ltd., the automotive part of Nottingham College, has recently returned from China where they visited a series of colleges and polytechnics on external verification visits.

Stephen Turner EMTEC Sector Development Manager and IMI International Regional Quality Assurer spent almost 3 weeks working with Chinese college staff, meeting many students, observing and reviewing their work and presenting IMI certificates to successful candidates. For the first five days Stephen was accompanied by Tony Lawson, IMI External Quality Manager who was carrying out an IMI audit of EMTEC’s work in China.

EMTEC (and previously Central College)  has had a long standing relationship with many Chinese institutions and currently has ten active colleges in the China IMI network, with hundreds of students successfully completing IMI automotive vocational awards. This visit included Beijing Polytechnic, Yancheng Technician College, Huanggang Polytechnic, Chengdu Industrial Vocational Technical College and Hangzhou Technician Institute. More colleges are expected to join this network in 2018.

In 2017 Yancheng Technician College registered the 1000th IMI student in China. This was celebrated with a small ceremony and the presentation of a Chinese – English automotive dictionary and commemorative certificate to the student involved.

Stephen said: “EMTEC has developed a fantastic relationship with our Chinese colleagues over the recent years and these visits ensure that the quality of training being delivered meets the IMI standards. This allows us to monitor and assess the student work and improve our international curriculum offer. We’ve been delighted at their progress.”
