Jee, KOSHIPA Enter Training Collaboration
Jee Ltd., an independent multidiscipline subsea engineering and training firm, has partnered with the Korea Offshore & Shipbuilding Association (KOSHIPA) to deliver its subsea engineering courses to the shipping body.
Jee signed a memorandum of agreement with KOSHIPA in November for the provision of its courses, due to begin in 2014. Under the agreement, Jee will send its U.K.-based tutors to South Korea to deliver its subsea courses to KOSHIPA’s member companies, which include major players such as Hyundai, Samsung and Daewoo.
Jee Head of Courses, Jenny Matthew, said, “We are very proud to join forces with an organization as prestigious as KOSHIPA. At Jee we are passionate about learning and development, and the team is very excited to work in collaboration with such a well-established organization to deliver a tailored curriculum.
“As KOSHIPA represents 90 percent of the global shipbuilding industry, this is a fantastic opportunity for Jee to expand its geographical horizons and share its training knowledge further afield. Our tutors will be delivering training to strengthen KOSHIPA’s members’ subsea skills base, and we look forward to learning more about the processes and development needs of KOSHIPA and its member organizations.”
The Vice Chairman YoungJuSuh represented KOSHIPA alongside SangdukBae and Dong-Hyuk Rhee to sign the agreement, which took place at Jee’s headquarters in Tonbridge. In attendance on behalf of Jee were founder and Managing Director Trevor Jee, Head of Courses Jenny Mathew, Business Development Manager Jamie Burrows and Head of Technical Excellence Jonathan Franklin.
Jee tutors utilize the company’s blended learning techniques, which involves using the most effective learning methods for a particular course and integrates techniques such as podcasts, group discussion and traditional tutor support to optimize the learning experience.
