South Korean educators discover more about vocational training in the UK at CONEL
The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) welcomed a group principals and vice principals from South Korea this month.
The 25-strong delegation represented some of the top vocational high schools from the Asian country visited CONEL’s Enfield Centre on 19 December.
The visit, led by Chungnam National University and supported by South Korea's Ministry of Education, was part of a one-week research trip to learn about vocational education in the UK and Ireland with a view to implementing best practices in South Korea.
The visiting schools provide training in a variety of industries, including engineering, electronic, motoring, maritime and energy.
The group was given an introduction to CONEL by Vice Principal Kurt Hintz before being taken on a tour of the College's workshops and were shown examples of students’ work.
“We were very pleased to welcome these visitors from South Korea to CONEL,” said Mr Hintz.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for the College to build international links and share our knowledge and expertise of vocational learning.”
