Adjust font size:

The Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG) has selected a total of 826 Games-time interns and put their training on its agenda.



This was revealed from a meeting in Beijing on Tuesday, which deals with the arrangement of the training work.


In September 2005, BOCOG signed a Memorandum of Understanding with 16 Beijing-based universities and colleges to jointly train 706 Games-time interns with an aim to meet the Games-time demand for various specialized personnel. Recently 120 interns were added to the list following a review of the plan.


The 826 interns include 590 post-graduate students, 94 university and college students and 142 polytechnic school students. Their entry is a result of the joint effort by the Beijing Municipal Education Commission, BOCOG departments which need more hands and related education institutions. The interns are required to go through a number of basic and professional subjects before participating in the preparatory work for the Olympics for a period of six months to one year.


Zhu Shanlu, member of the Standing Committee of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China in charge of the capital city's education, said the work with the interns can better nurture the team involved in Olympic preparations and can enhance the on-going educational reform in Beijing's higher education institutions.
