Visit to the Bilfenfeld Campus of FHM


From September 18th to 20th, a delegation led by Wang Jinsheng, Secretary of the Party Committee, Qingdao Technical College (QTC), along with representatives from the International Office, School of Business, School of Arts, and Haier School (School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering), visited Germany. During this visit, QTC officially established the "Qingdao Technical College 'Chinese + Vocational Skills'" overseas teaching base in Bielefeld FHM (Fachhochschule des Mittelstandes). Also, in partnership with the German Leipzig Chamber of Commerce (IHK Leipzig), QTC introduced the IHK (Industrie Handel skammer) vocational qualification certificate, to promote the implementation of teacher mutual employment mechanism, and to actively explore a new paradigm of internationalization in vocational education, combining the concepts of "going out" and "inviting in."

At FHM, both parties negotiated on the operation of the Tsingde College, the arrangements for German professional teachers, cooperation in running programs related to logistics management, clothing and fashion design, project applications, the introduction of German curriculum standards, and collaborative development of programs. An agreement was reached regarding the mutual exchange and recruitment of teaching staff. Qiu Haoran, the Dean of School of Business, QTC, delivered a lecture on "Exploration and Practice of the Integration Path of Industry-Education Collaboration in the Digital Economic Era" at the overseas teaching base.

At IHK Leipzig, discussions were held on topics of the introduction of IHK vocational qualification certificate training and certification system, teacher training, student certification, and other matters. This visit holds significant importance for international accreditation of QTC's faculty and students, the international teacher training, and the establishment of an international vocational qualification certificate accreditation system in vocational education.

The establishment of the "Chinese + Vocational Skills" overseas teaching base by QTC signifies a milestone in QTC's efforts to export vocational education overseas, transitioning from "inviting in" to "going out." This endeavor adds a new dimension to the dissemination of the "QTC Experience" by establishing an overseas teaching base in Germany, a country with a well-developed vocational education system.
