McDonald's China to spend US$14.7m in talent training programme

The fast food giant has partnered with over 40 schools so far.

McDonald’s China will invest 100 million yuan (about US$14.77 million) in a talent training programme in collaboration with more than 100 vocational schools from 2020 to 2022.

As reported by Xinhua News Agency, the fast food giant said it would work with vocational schools to carry out targeted training under the "modern apprentice" model, where participants can gain work experience at McDonald's restaurants before starting their full-time jobs.

McDonald's previously opened 12 modern apprentice classes across China and trained more than 300 students.

Currently, the company has reached agreements with over 40 vocational schools for cooperation under the apprentice model.
