Mar 05 Opening of Taekyeung College
Co-operative Education has played a vital role in the development and success of many Taekyeung College graduates. Students, co-op educators, faculty, and employers are partners in this educational process which integrates classroom study with paid on-the-job work experience. Co-op work terms bridge academic semesters with opportunities to apply knowledge and skills gained through studies. All Co-operative Education work terms are considered formal academic experiences with defined learning objectives, academic direction and evaluation.
Taekyeung's Co-operative Education program simultaneously offers on-the-job training, academic credit and the possibility of monetary compensation. A co-op provides valuable training and a laboratory in which to test classroom knowledge and one's aptitude in a particular career. All academic departments participate in co-op and positions related to a student's major, minor or career goals. In this program, you work with a co-op coordinator to find a qualified training site, or your current job may qualify if it relates to your studies. Co-op training can help you establish references for future employment and expand your knowledge of and experience in a particular kind of work while you are earning college credit. Co-op education may also improve your ability to make the transition from school to work when you complete your program.
This educational system is constructed with a high-tech classroom. This system enables students to practice classroom theory and practical experience demanded from the business industry. A definite hands-on approach to learning. This enables students to enter the workforce without prior work experience.
Included within this system is the 'Hair Studio' and 'Skin Clinic,' and the '42nd Street restaurant.' These are run by students and professors with profits awarded to students as scholarships.
Through the curriculum of practicality before name, competence before formality, we try to enhance the students' adaptability to business. We teach students to demonstrate abilities and skills needed most in the business world. For example, the "Lagosol" (Taekyeung's proper brand) is designed by Textile Design students, displayed by Interior Design students, advertised by Computer Design students and are being sold by Distribution and Information students through marketing research.
Co-operative education provides opportunities for students to learn and apply job search skills, enables students to develop a network of employer contacts, exposes students to the realities of the workplace in their chosen field, provides quality work experience where students can apply their knowledge and skills, and assists employers by providing well trained, enthusiastic co-op students.
The co-operative education work term is usually 17weeks in length and a minimum of 320 hours of paid program-related work experience is required. During the work term, the College will monitor the co-op student through an on-site visit, telephone call or mail.
The co-operative education work term is an academic experience for which academic credits are granted.Successful completion of a work term is based on assignments which generally include a work term exercise/report, an employer evaluation and a daily log.
Taekyeung College's CO-OP program is being internationally exported for the first time in Korea. The college established the international educational center, Taekyeung College's CO-OP (Co-Operative) program in Indonesia on the 23rd.
Now based upon this on-site educational center in March 2004, Students are being recruited. According to the international communication network, many institution staff including our own dean were invited to the actual location by the dean of U.I.A. College for the opening ceremony of the International Education Center. Also, they signed a contract with the Global Tri-Angle Educational System and made a continuous educational agreement for the three majors of security, beauty-design, and travel hotel. The college is pursuing the Indonesia international educational center in an operation method of tri-mutual cooperative system (tri-angle education system) of Taekyeung College, U.I.A. on-site college, and LG Phillips, the domestic on-site corporation. The supply and demand rate of students composes of the on-location LG Phillips laborers for the first time and the course period is from 1 to 2 years. The educational method will be executed in the CO-OP educational system developed by Taekyeung College. The subjects at the Indonesia Educational Center are Korean, Understanding Korean Business Culture, Computer Processing, and Beauty Processing; the students who complete the required courses earn a certificate.
The international global education center progresses in cooperation with the sister-school, Indonesia U.I.A. College (Domestic Islam [Ashaphia] College or U.I.A. College). The U.I.A. College provides the campus and the educational content and our institution provides the teaching staff along with course programs. Moreover, the institution agreed to further contract the security, beauty design, and hotel management majors with the U.I.A. College in operating the cooperative educational program.
From this educational program, the security major assumes the short-term security educational course as an internship from Korea's security educational exchange program; U.I.A. College operates the security educational program in sending the internship students to Korea as an on-site training group accordingly. As for the beauty design major, the professors were also sent to Korea. Thus, the U.I.A. College's beauty design and facility supports along with cooperative product development are contracted to outreach towards the Middle-East regions of Saudi Arabia and Syria. And, the travel hotel division reported to operate the actual on-site terms in cooperation through our college students and the Bally hotel on-site works along with the U.I.A. College students.
"Associated Travel Hotels - Kotakinabalu Pacific Supra Harbor Hotel in Malaysia / Foreign CO-OP Contract Treaty Concluded"
Taekyeung College's travel/hotel department has executed a short-term major study's training program by dividing into three regions of Malaysia, Kotakinabalu, and Japan for a 6 day trip from October 26 to October 31, 2003. As a result, we have signed a mutual educational contract for a CO-OP Program with Kotakinabalu's top quality equipment and grading scale, "Pacific Supra Harbor Resort Hotel". Through the CO-OP educational program, the school and industry can cooperatively operate the practical major-related work-study program and produce many students connected to the point of actual employment in case they desire so.
In addition, we have signed a contracts with the world famous chain hotel, Shangri-la Hotel and the People Korea, the on-site travel agency. So, through such contracts, both parties manage the students in cooperation. We have agreed to train and hire the students as the world-class hoteliers and tour guides together. Even until the present day, the travel hotel associates are managing the academics in coherence with the industry entities through the mutual contract agreement with domestic, Australian, Vally, and Philippine's top quality hotels and travel agents. Educating the registered students in such coherence every vacation and semester, the students receive pay for work and are hired at a high employment rate through the CO-OP practical on-site program.
