JEDDAH - The General Organization for Technical and Vocational Training in Jeddah will soon receive a delegation from the British Brighton College. The visit comes as part of a joint cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom in the field of technical and vocational education.
"It takes advantage of the exchange of knowledge and experience which will be of benefit to both sides," said Dean Mansour Al-Maiman. He added that there might be a possibility for the implementation of a joint cooperative training programs in the future.
The joint cooperation raises awareness among trainees about the different cultures and enables them to participate in training workshops, he said.
Trainers also benefit by being introduced to modern equipment in their field of expertise.
Last year a Saudi delegation visited the Brighton College for ten days with the same objectives.
