HUDDERSFIELD Technical College is helping to rebuild Iraq's education system.
Ten lecturers from the country are in the town for a six-week course at the college aimed at equipping them with the latest theory and practice in teaching.
The project is being funded by the British Council and was initiated by the college's Rasheda Zaher Draey, who worked in Iraq in 2001.
Her visit made her realise how Iraq's teaching and resources were vastly outdated.
"We are hoping to help the universities in Iraq improve their standard of teaching by sharing our expertise on this training course," she said.
Lecturers on the scheme are from four universities in northern Iraq.
A number of publishing houses and speakers will be giving presentations.
Huddersfield Technical College also recently played host to Iraqi education managers in another project designed to boost the country's regeneration.
