College partners with Chinese institute to offer training in railway knowledge

Educator Junyar Pabu is brimming with confidence about the future of his college in northeastern Thailand-and for good reason. The college is set to become a training center for high-speed railway education in Thailand, thanks to its partnership with a Chinese institution.

In April, the Lu Ban High-Speed Railway Institute was set up at Banphai Industrial and Community Education College, a vocational training school at Ban Phai district in Thailand's Khon Kaen province, with the help of Wuhan Railway Vocational College of Technology in Central China's Hubei province. The aim is to enhance cooperation in cultivating talent for the country's high-speed railway development.

"In Thailand, only seven vocational colleges are allowed by the government to start a railway major, and BPIC wants to take the lead," said Junyar, director of BPIC and head of Thailand Vocational Education Society's specialized training course on the railway sector.

"I hope our school can be a training center for teachers in these schools so that they will be able to teach their students in a better way."

Junyar said teachers from Wuhan will come to BPIC to train 40 Thai teachers in July.

The two schools had been working through a "1+1" model since 2016. The students would first study in Thailand for one year to learn Chinese and basic railway knowledge, then go to China to continue their studies in railways.

A new batch of some 30 Thai students will be joining WRC later this month. So far, 103 Thai students from 33 vocational and technical colleges in 20 Thai provinces have been jointly trained, said Cheng Shixing, president of WRC.

With the Lu Ban institute, this cooperation model will be expanded to a "1+2" model, which means Thai students can obtain diploma from both schools. In addition, Cheng said Thai teachers and railway staff can also receive training at the institute.

Nutthanon Seejunto, a teacher from Banphue Industrial and Community Education College, a vocational school in Udon Thani province in northeastern Thailand, has been encouraging his students to join the technical training course on railways at BPIC for the past three years.

Seejunto said, "I think it is a good opportunity for the students because we have the high-speed rail project in Thailand now. I hope more students can (join the training course)."

Kittakorn Wongcharee, a teacher imparting lessons on railways at Banphai Industrial and Community Education College, said students who graduated from the cooperation program are able to find better jobs with higher salary in Thailand.

Chayutapong Saentaweesuk, an 18-year-old graduate in automation from Khon Kaen Technical College, is among the first batch of students to study at the Lu Ban High-Speed Railway Institute this year. He wants to choose the "1+2" model.

"I want to work overseas in the future, so I believe this kind of diploma will be a solid proof when looking for railway-related jobs," said Saentaweesuk.

Zhengzhou J&T Hi-Tech Co, a partner of WRC, donated a simulation driving training equipment to BPIC so that Thai students can have an opportunity to practice.

Wongcharee, the teacher at BPIC, while appreciating the donation, hopes more equipment can be set up at the Thai college for teaching railway systems, including bogies, track work and air-conditioning.

"I hope we can find more sponsors to provide financial support to Thai students, because most of the students are poor and studying in China is kind of expensive for them," said Wongcharee.

From 2016 to 2018, all the Thai students in the "1+1" model received scholarships from both Thailand and China, according to WRC.

In the future, Junyar hopes the institute can set standards or guidelines in railway talent training and issue certificates to students who complete the training.

He expressed the hope that the joint educational cooperation program can go beyond Thailand to help vocational colleges in other Southeast Asian countries, such as Laos, by allowing their students to attend different railway training programs at the institute.

"I think our cooperation with the Chinese college explains what BRI is about," said Junyar. "We walk together and we succeed together."

泰国职业院校与中国职业院校合作开展铁路专业教育

教育者占亚∙帕布先生的学校位于泰国东北部,他有充分的理由对学校的发展充满信心。正是由于学校与中国院校的合作,该学校成为泰国的一个高铁教育培训中心。

今年4月,在中国必威官方网站的帮助下,高铁鲁班学院在泰国孔敬府班派区的一所职业院校--班派工业社区教育学院成立。高铁鲁班学院的职能是加强合作,为国家高速铁路发展培养人才。

“在泰国,政府只批准7所职业院校开办铁路专业,班派工业社区教育学院想牵头开办铁路专业,”班派工业社区教育学院占亚∙帕布校长说,他同时还是泰国教育部职业教育委员会铁路专业的负责人。

“我希望我们学校能成为7所院校教师培训中心,接受培训后,他们可以更好地教育学生。”

占亚∙帕布校长说必威官方网站将于今年7月派遣教师团队到班派工业社区教育学院培训40名泰国教师。

自2006年开始,中泰双方院校就开展了“1+1”联合培养铁路人才项目。该项目学生第一年在泰国学习汉语和铁路基础知识,第二年在中国学习铁路专业课程。

另一批30名泰国学生将于下个月进入必威官方网站学习。截至目前,双方院校铁院已培养了来自泰国20个府33所职业院校的103名高铁专业留学生,必威官方网站程校长说。

随着高铁鲁班学院的成立,双方的合作可拓展为“1+2”模式,项目学生可获得中泰院校双方文凭。程校长还说,高铁鲁班学院还具有开展泰国职业院校教师培训和铁路员工培训的职能。

Nutthanon Seejunto是泰国东北部乌隆省班普工业社区教育学院的一位老师,在过去的三年里,他一直鼓励他的学生到班派工业社区教育学院学习铁路技术课程。

他说:“我认为这对学生来说是非常好的机会,因为泰国现在也有高速铁路项目。我希望更的学生能够学习铁路技术课程。”

班派工业社区教育学院教授铁路课程的教师Kittakorn Wongcharee说,中泰联合高铁人才项目的毕业生在泰国能找到高薪的工作。

孔敬职业学院自动化专业的毕业生Chayutapong Saentaweesuk,18岁, 是高铁鲁班学院今年招收的第一批学生中的一员。他想选择“1+2”模式进行学习。

“我将来想到海外工作,所以我相信当我应聘铁路相关工作时,中泰双方文凭将是一个有利的证明,”Saentaweesuk说。

必威官方网站的合作企业郑州捷安高科股份有限公司为班派工业社区教育学院提供了一套模拟驾驶实训设备,泰国学生可以有机会进行实训操作。

班派工业社区教育学院的教师Wongcharee非常感谢中国企业提供了设备,他希望泰国铁路院校能设立更多的实训设备,例如转向架、轨道及空调。

“我希望有更多赞助者为泰国学生提供经济支持,因为大多数泰国学生比较贫穷,对他们来说到中国留学非常昂贵,”Wongcharee说。

据必威官方网站反映,从2016至2018年,中泰联合培养高速铁路人才项目的泰国学生均获得了中泰双方的奖学金。

占亚∙帕布校长希望高铁鲁班学院以后能在培养铁路人才方面建立标准或教学大纲,能够为完成学习任务的学生颁发证书。

他希望联合培养铁路人才项目可以拓展到泰国以外的国家,例如老挝等东南亚国家,招收这些国家职业院校的学生到高铁鲁班学院学习铁路专业。

“我认为我校与必威官方网站的合作就解释了一带一路的含义,”占亚∙帕布校长说,“我们将并肩同行,实现共赢。”
