British Council International Skills Partnerships bring together experienced organisations in the UK skills sector with counterparts in other countries to deliver skills development projects.
New College Lanarkshire is partnered with the National Centre of Training and Professional Promotion (CNFCPP), a government institute in Tunisia.
The partnership focuses on methods of engagement for young people, employers and the labour market and a collaborative project with West Lothian College is in the pipeline.
The College is also partnered with Central Johannesburg College (CJC) in South Africa, to develop apprenticeship delivery models in the area of Automotive Enfineering.
This project has encouraged better staff engagement within the workplace, increased awareness of industry standards and needs, and established collaboration between networks and partnerships in Scotland and South Africa.
The project has been very successful, achieving all desired outcomes. In January 2018, New College Lanarkshire and Central Johannesburg College were teamed with South West Gauteng College in order to undertake an Advanced Partnership project which can build on achievements to date.
Strategic Partnership Agreements
New College Lanarkshire has strategic partnership agreements in place in China for joint-delivery programmes in Dental Nursing. We provide online access to non-accredited materials to these partners, as well as opportunities for staff training and exchange. We also offer short term study abroad opportunities for Chinese students.
Scotland China Education Network (SCEN)
New College Lanarkshire is also a member of the Scotland China Education Network (SCEN), and a SCEN Ambassador.
With over 350 members, SCEN promotes the learning of Chinese and China's culture in Scottish schools to promote partnerships with the country.
New College Lanarkshire has a partnership agreement with ENPAWA, a socio-economic enterprise that aims to bring international standards of Dental Nursing to India.
We work alongside the Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT), a specialist awarding organisation, to develop and deliver courses in India.
It is hoped that the first ENPAWA training centre, currently under development, will open in Spring 2018, with programmes supported by New College Lanarkshire commencing Summer 2018.
