TAFE Western connects with Korea

Delegates from Korea's Catholic Sangji College (CSC) will be in Dubbo next week to speak with training providers to establish academic partnerships.

The group will be hosted by Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana on July 27 and 28.

They will meet with representatives from Charles Sturt University, TAFE Western and Fletcher International to tour their facilities and discus academic articulation, language study, internships and job placements.

RDA Orana CEO Felicity Taylor-Edwards said international education was Australia's third-largest export.

"As we look to diversify the region's economic base, this is certainly an avenue that should be and is being explored," Ms Taylor-Edwards said.

"This visit and the resulting partnerships will not only facilitate the exchange of education, but also promote the Orana region to an international audience and further develop positive business relationships with South Korea."

The CSC delegates visit is part of the wider strategy of the Korean Trainee Project.

TAFE Western director Kate Baxter said she was looking forward to seeing the outcomes of the trip.

"TAFE Western is excited to be a partner in the Korean Trainee Project and we are confident that this visit will create a pathway into that project," Ms Baxter said.
