Chinese learn the Barnsley way

TEACHERS from China swapped classroom tips with their South Yorkshire counterparts on a visit to Barnsley College.

Twelve staff from Shaoxing College in Eastern China’s Zhejiang Province looked in on accountancy lessons and paid a visit to Gibson Booth, an accountancy firm which provides apprenticeships.

The Chinese delegates also received a civic welcome from Deputy Mayor Elect Ken Richardson in the first of a series of planned visits designed to encourage international students to enrol in Barnsley.
