RMIT will deliver English teacher training to lecturers at Tongji University in Shanghai, following a new agreement.
CEO of RMIT Training, Rachel Holthouse, with Tongji University's, Professor Huang Xiangfeng.
A Memorandum of Understanding was recently signed by the CEO of RMIT Training, Rachel Holthouse, and Professor Huang Xiangfeng, Head of Tongji's College of Environmental Science and Engineering.
The MoU with RMIT supports the provision of English teacher training to Tongji University lecturers for professional development.
As institutions such as Tongji further internationalise, it is becoming increasingly necessary for teachers to deliver their programs in English.
RMIT Training has considerable experience developing and delivering tailored teacher training programs in China with numerous partners from all levels - primary, secondary and tertiary - within the education sector.
Ms Holthouse said the signing signified the start of an exciting relationship between the two institutions.
"We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Tongji University as they prepare academics to deliver their programs in English," Ms Holthouse said.
"The signing of the MoU is an important step in what we hope will be a long term relationship between our two organisations."
RMIT Training - a company wholly owned by RMIT University - is a leading provider of tailored English programs worldwide.
