WXIT Organizes the First CEAIE-ATUPA Faculty Capacity Building Program


From 17 to 21 January, the first one-to-one training program for faculty of vocational colleges in Africa was successfully completed. It was organized by WXIT, and co-hosted by the China Education Association for International Exchange and Cooperation (CEAIC) and the Association of Technical Universities and Polytechnics in Africa (ATUPA) under the guidance of the Department of International Cooperation and Exchange of the Ministry of Education. The program is part of the “Future Africa - China-Africa Vocational Education Cooperation Program” and was attended by faculty from our cooperative college, the Gert Sibande TVET College in South Africa.

In order to achieve best teaching results, WXIT selected best teachers and provided meticulously-arranged training courses in English at the webinar. The first day of the program began with an online live streaming program themed on Intelligent Manufacturing, Charming WXIT, during which the college displayed the beautiful campus to teachers from South African Cooperative colleges, in order to help them learn more about the intelligent manufacturing major and first-class laboratory facilities. Moreover, we focused on demonstrating practical examples of China-South Africa cross-border cultivation of talents receiving vocational educations, which were carried out twice by WXIT and the South African Department of Higher Education. In the subsequent training sessions, the college conducted such themed seminars and discussions as capacity-based talent training program R&D and how to make a micro lecture, with a focus on key problems involved in China-Africa substantial cooperation on technical and vocational education and training, such as the implementation and recognition of talent training program, making and implementation of e-learning, and design and arrangement of remote training. These sessions fully demonstrated the teaching and research achievements of our college in recent years under the Belt and Road initiative, and gained trust and confidence of key teachers from the African side.

In order to promote exchanges and cooperation in vocational education under the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) has been commissioned by the International Department of the Ministry of Education to launch the “Future of Africa — a project for China-Africa cooperation on vocational education” in 2021. WXIT has been selected as one of the first 14 pilot colleges in China to carry out this project. We will take this program as an opportunity to take detailed and concrete actions to improve the cultivation of talents receiving technical and vocational education and training in both China and Africa, and take the lead with our intelligent manufacturing standard. With all these measures, WXIT strives to provide better services for China-invested enterprises developing overseas, and to constantly expand international influences of our college.
