Burton and South Derbyshire College

Anglo-French collaboration: vocational training for the polymer industry


Reflecting the urgent need for vocational education in frequently changing production technology, the College introduced a training course specialising in the rubber and plastics industry. By sharing the facilities the college provides technical staff for the industry located close-by. A formal twinning of Staffordshire and Roche-sur-Mer has resulted in French investment in the East Staffordshire area as well as common curriculum topics in British and French schools.
