West Notts hosts South African visit

MANSFIELD’S West Notts College has welcomed delegates from South Africa on a fact-finding educational mission.

Visitors from East Cape Midlands College in Uitenhage, Eastern Cape, spent two days learning about the college’s approach to vocational training and links to industry.

Sandra Cowley, head of employer engagement, said: “They were particularly interested in how we ensure the qualifications we offer meet the needs of industry and get students ready for employment by the end of their studies.”

The trip was organised to strengthen South Africa’s further education by building greater links with the UK.
