On 24 March 2016, Prof. Dr Jailani Md Yunos headed a team of four TVET teachers from the Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) in Malaysia and visited Shenzhen Polytechnic (SZPT) in the Republic of China.
The delegation were received by leaders and teachers from the National Research Institute of Vocational Education in SZPT. Accompanied by Assoc. Prof. Dayue (David) Fan, Acting Director of the UNEVOC Centre, the visitors toured the workshops of the School of Automotive and Transportation Engineering, School of Mechanical, Electrical Engineering, School of Medical Technology and Nursing, and the School of Media and Communication. The meeting also discussed possibilities for future bilateral cooperation.
Prof. Dr Jailani planned to visit SZPT after listening to a presentation by the SZPT at the General Assembly of the Regional Association of Vocational Teacher Education (RAVTE). Future bilateral projects between the two UNEVOC Centres might include a cooperative study of pedagogies for integrating transferable skills in TVET programmes in Malaysia and China, as well as a cooperative study for a transnational green skill framework for TVET. These bilateral projects will be implemented with support of local governments, with a option of including the UNEVOC Network.
