Kangan Institute has received an award as one of the top 50 vocational colleges in Asia-Pacific.
The award was presented at the 2018 Asian Education Forum’s Asia-Pacific Vocational Education International Cooperation Summit held last month in Chengdu, China.
Ranked 31st, Kangan Institute is one of three Australian TAFEs to make the list which recognises vocational colleges that have made outstanding contributions to vocational education and training within Asia-Pacific.
Achievements in international cooperation and exchanges within the region were also key considerations.
CEO Trevor Schwenke said the award reflected Kangan Institute’s commitment and the Government’s support in fostering vocational education excellence in Asia-Pacific.
“Kangan Institute is delighted to receive this prestigious international award. It’s a wonderful affirmation of our success in working closely with educational partners to deliver quality education and enhance vocational futures in the region,” he said.
“Our international efforts are backed by the Government and a strong Victorian TAFE network that actively supports the shaping of vocational outcomes in the Asia-Pacific.”
The top 50 list includes Australian TAFE providers Melbourne Polytechnic and South Metropolitan TAFE. Vocational colleges from China, USA, Russia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Bangladesh, Japan and Malaysia were also represented.
Kangan Institute currently partners with vocational colleges and universities in China, India and beyond to deliver offshore training programs across a range of disciplines. Onshore courses are also available at its metropolitan campuses. For further information visit kangan.edu.au/international.
