AGCAS representatives return from China visit

Two small groups of members and staff from AGCAS and the National Association of Student Employment Services (NASES) recently conducted an employment-focused visit to Beijing and Shanghai to meet with government bodies, employers and HR organisations, university careers staff and Chinese alumni from universities across the UK.

Better support

The purpose of the visit was to help members of AGCAS and NASES provide more effective support for Chinese students and graduates in the UK by:

- improving understanding of the Chinese labour market in order to help UK-educated Chinese graduates enter the job market more successfully on their return to China;

- developing relationships with Chinese employers who would be interested in recruiting UK-educated Chinese students;

- developing information and resources to be made available nationally to support careers and employment advisers working with Chinese students.

The visit was funded as part of PMI2. Look out for further announcements about the visit, including reports and resources, in the coming months.

Launched in April 2006, the Prime Minister's Initiative for International Education, commonly referred to as PMI2, is a five-year strategy to secure the UK's position as a leader in international education and sustain the managed growth of UK international education delivered both in the UK and overseas.
