Capital City College Group (CCCG) recently welcomed a group of 20 engineering faculty members from Korea Polytechnics to take part in a week-long bespoke Leadership training programme.

Korea Polytechnics is a collection of 11 colleges throughout 34 cities in Korea, where students attend one of their public vocational school for between two to three years. The group visited CCCG’s College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CoNEL) to experience the Construction and Engineering provision at the Enfield Campus. As part of their programme, the group made a trip to Kelly Rail; an engineering employer collaborating with CCCG on the delivery of apprenticeships. The highlight of the visit was a presentation provided by four apprentices currently working at Kelly Rail who spoke about the experience and the benefits of being on an apprenticeship.

The programme was extremely well received by the engineering faculty group with particularly positive feedback on the information provided at CoNEL and its facilities. This is the second cohort of KOPO faculty CCCG have received on a programme of this nature. CCCG look forward to continuing its relationship with Korea Polytechnics.
