The visit included a series of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) ceremony signings, the starting point of establishing a framework for future partnership working.

MOUs were signed with the government of Haryana, All India Council of Technical Education, and the National Skill Development Corporation Delhi. A letter of intent was signed with the National Forensic Sciences University.

CRC is a specialist vocational education training centre and one of the key objectives of the partnership is a teacher and student exchange programme.

This will enable participants from CRC and the Indian institutions to share knowledge and develop an understanding of the different academic and cultural environments.

The goal of the programme is to equip students and teachers with a broader perspective and a deeper understanding of vocational training.

The creation of networks with employers in India and beyond will also enhance prospects for students.

There will also be cultural exchanges and events to cultivate a greater appreciation of different traditions, customs, and beliefs, promoting a global community of open-minded individuals.

Maureen Horan, CRC’s assistant principal – employer engagement, international and commercial operations, said: “It is an honour for our vocational training expertise to have been recognised internationally and we are delighted to be working with such a cross section of organisations in India to assist their strategy to develop their vocational training and education infrastructure and workforce.

“Our mission is to transform lives, and we do this by developing the skills of thousands of students every year to help them forge promising careers and we are glad to be able to share our knowledge and expertise.

“We look forward to welcoming the first cohort of students and teachers in November.”

CRC has campuses in Cambridge and Huntingdon.
