Canberra Institute of Technology To Sign MoU with Indian Government

Posted By:

Educational institutions in India and Australia are set to become stronger as the Australian Capital Territory's (ACT) Education Minister Joy Burch visits Kerala and Gujarat this week, it was reported on Friday.

Burch's aim is to promote the ACT's vocational training institutions, ABC reported.

She will be joined by Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) chief executive Leanne Cover to meet with a technology company, Indian education ministers and training institutions to discuss partnership opportunities.

As part of the visit, a memorandum of understanding will be signed by Indian government officials and CIT to train Indian students in spatial information, surveying and forensic science.

India, Australia To Strengthen Educational Ties

Burch said there was a significant number of Indian students coming to Canberra to study and some of courses could be delivered to them closer to home.

"Now's the time to support their emerging status as an economic superpower and actually meet their needs locally with these fabulous partnerships with our vocational education sector," she said.

With a growing economy and strong skilled workforce developing in India, Burch said there were a range of opportunities available for training facilities in the ACT to take part in delivering high-quality vocational training.

She added the partnership would allow training to be delivered more effectively.
