Building Cultural Links

Building Cultural Links

The Thai delegation from the prestigious Chulalongkorn University School of Sports Science visited Tameside College and Hyde Clarendon Sixth Form College to view the state of the art Sports and Leisure facilities. The purpose of the visit was to formulate the partnership between the two organisations and to build on the collaborative relationship to establish links in sports and training initiatives with the College.

 

The project will be a first for the College and the North West with Thai lecturers travelling to the College to receive a UK qualification. The Food Studies department has already established strong training and development links with the Thai community and is currently in the advanced stage of planning an international Food Studies Programme for Taiwanese chefs.

After the tour of the college facilities the honourable guests including the Assistant Professor Dr Chalerm Chaiwatcharapom, Dean of Sports Science and Professor Dr Charoon Meesin, International Affairs and Special Activities along with Tameside College Vice Principal, Jennifer Worsdale and Head of International Relations, Chris Massey attended a meal in the College’s Reflections Restaurant.
