College visits partner in Bahrain

18 December 2014

Bahrain 2013
A team from the college have visited the Victory Training and Development Institute (VTDI) in Bahrain. Earlier this year the college signed a landmark agreement with VTDI to approve and oversee Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Advanced Level 7 qualifications in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The team not only carried out an inspection of the qualifications provided by VTDI but also delivered a number of lectures to the first cohort of students.

Linda Stannett, Head of Department for Business, Management, Teacher Training and Higher Education at the college said:

“The hospitality afforded to us was excellent, we were made very welcome.  Overall we were happy with the general performance of VTDI’s delivery of the CIPD Advanced Diploma Programme.  We were particularly encouraged by the commitment and enthusiasm of both the business development and quality teams.”

The team will be visiting Bahrain again in January 2014 as part of the on-going quality control process and also to deliver further lectures on a range of Human Resource topics.

The college is delighted to have signed such a prestigious contract to provide training internationally and Campbell Christie CBE, the college’s Principal and Chief Executive said:

“In choosing Bracknell & Wokingham College to deliver this training, the CIPD and VTDI have recognised the high quality of the CIPD and Management programmes offered by the college. This innovative contract enables the college to follow its strategic direction of increasing and widening participation with international students.

We are proud to be the only centre offering CIPD awarded qualifications at the highest level, the top tier of Human Resources Management study, in Bahrain.

We are looking forward to strengthening further our role as an accredited CIPD centre, one of whose strategic aims is also to develop a major presence in the Middle East.”
