LCMC to welcome Chinese officials in September
Published 1 September 2010
Lancaster China Management Centre (LCMC) has again been commissioned by the China Youth Centre for International Exchange (CYCIE) to organise a management development course for a group of seventeen senior Chinese officials in September 2010.
The officials from across China will benefit from an intensive 7-day course, focusing on UK government structures and public administration, with a particular emphasis on current youth issues, such as education and youth offending. Other areas of study will include an insight into public finance, e-governance and performance appraisal.
The course will also give the officials opportunities for interaction with speakers and colleagues on the course, allowing them to draw comparisons between their systems in China with those in operation in the UK.
Course Director, Professor David Brown, who is also Director of the LCMC, said:
“We are delighted to be able to work again with the CYCIE, to deliver this course for senior officials. We can draw on the experience of prior courses to ensure that we meet the needs of the officials and that they can return to China with new insights and ideas. We look forward to welcoming this important group to Lancaster in September.”
The course will draw on the expertise of a range of speakers, including LUMS and Lancaster University lecturers and also professionals from outside institutions, including Glasgow Caledonian University and Leeds Metroplitan University. The knowledge gained from these sessions will be enriched by visits to Lancashire County Council, the Young People's Service and Lancaster City Council.
