Five teachers from Myanmar are learning mechanical skills at state vocational school SMK 2 in Surakarta, Central Java, under an international school cooperation program, supported by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education (SEAMOLEC).
“They will be at SMK Negeri 2 from Nov. 22 to Dec. 2 to gain theoretical as well as practical knowledge under the guidance of the school teachers,” the school’s instructor, Ali Ahmadi, said on Sunday in Surakarta, which is also known as Solo.
One of the participants, Khwa Nyo Win Shein, a lecturer at the Technical University of Myanmar, said he participated in the program to study mechanical materials. “Here I learned more about them and could practice [my newfound skills and knowledge] at the workshop,” he said as quoted by the Antara news agency.
