■ Nine Northlink College students will be jetting off to China as part of a scholarship programme that will equip 200 South African students with the necessary skills and experience to better their chance of being employed in the future. They will be doing six months of university and theoretical training at Beijing Union University while the other six months will see them gain practical experience in the related mechanica* engineering field. “The college is excited to be able to have such great international partnerships that will not only benefit the college but the students themselves. With this support, these nine students will be able to grow their skills-set and become more employable within the trades and industries they are part of,” said Trish van der Merwe, Northlink College deputy * rincipal: Innovation and Development.
