GPTP Project for KCCE in South Korea

Burton and South Derbyshire College

In 2016, following a successful visit to Burton and South Derbyshire College (BSDC) from representatives of the Korean Ministry of Education, BSDC was selected to take part in the Korean Global Practical Training Programme.

This programme sends Korean students every spring and autumn across the world to undertake a four-month placement in which to gain practical employability skills towards their major degree.

These learners visit BSDC and study a combined programme of 8 weeks of English langauge classes and 8 weeks of practicum in their major curriculum areas.

Burton and South Derbyshire College (BSDC) is proud to have extensive partnerships with a range of leading organisations. With joint projects and a collaborative approach, learners are able to benefit from its partnerships first-hand through an industry-led curriculum and state of the art facilities, access to key industry contacts and the opportunity to work on live briefs for real companies.

BSDC are always investing in state of the art facilities to equip its students for the world of work. Higher Education learners have their own University Centre, vocational learners enjoy learning in real world specialist facilities, and what could prepare our learners better for a career in catering or hair and beauty than learning in our buzzing commercial restaurant and salon?
