China Projects

Historical Background

In 2000–2001, Holland College signed a number of Educational Joint Venture (EJV) agreements with partner colleges and institutes across China. The primary objective of these ventures is to share educational methodology and create educational and career opportunities for students, both in China and in Canada.

The programs would be three years in duration. The first year is a preparatory year with a focus on learning English. Year One also includes mandatory courses that enable students to acquire a Chinese college diploma. The second and third year are exclusively devoted to the delivery of a number of two-year Holland College diploma programs. Each program is delivered in English and enables students to earn a Holland College Canadian credential without leaving China.

Methodology

The EJV programs are delivered using a North American Educational Methodology called Competency Based Education (CBE). CBE, also known as Performance Based Education, identifies the specific skills and outcomes that a student must master or perform to successfully complete the program. Each program is designed to meet the expectations of business and industry and the outcomes or objectives of the program are clearly identified.

Same Programs. Same Skills.

The EJV programs offered in China are duplicates of the programs offered by Holland College in Canada. Students receive the same credential and acquired the same skills to work in industry. An EJV program is an investment in a student’s future.

Benefits include:

  • Students develop enhanced English language and communication skills, confidence, and a strong understanding of the expectations of industry.
  • The CBE methodology requires students to develop hands-on technical and professional skills that are easily recognizable by an employer.
  • Students receive two diplomas—one from China and one from Canada.
  • Students can transfer their course credits and continue their education in Canada.

Students who successfully complete an EJV program have a competitive edge in the workforce, as well as the opportunity to continue their studies elsewhere.

International Projects

Enhanced Rural Teacher Training Project

teacher

The goal of this project is to increase student success in rural and remote ethnic minority populations of Sichuan province by enhancing the learning environment in the critical early years of schooling through improved in-service training and support for kindergarten/primary schoolteachers. Enhancing student success in the early years facilitates improved student retention, motivation, and achievement of learning outcomes and builds a strong foundation for future achievements in secondary education, employment, and/or higher education. It is the essential foundation for reducing poverty and enhancing social and economic opportunity for the province’s disadvantaged minorities.
