Glasgow Kelvin College’s long standing partnership with India has been further strengthened by a new Memorandum Of Understanding agreed between the College and the Tamil Nadu Apex Skill Development Centre for Healthcare.
The Centre has a target to train 50,000 people over the next 5 years in all aspects of healthcare. The aim of the MOU is for the College and the Centre to share learning and teaching practices, to develop new networks across both countries, to identify new opportunities for Glasgow Kelvin students and staff and, potentially, new business opportunities.
Whilst Healthcare is an important aspect of Glasgow Kelvin’s curriculum, the MOU also empowers the College to build on its own networks of healthcare training partners and to present a Scotland wide approach to working with this important new Indian partner.
This will be a relationship that will not only benefit the College and the Centre, but also healthcare training provision at a national level in both countries.
