Chinese language teachers (CPD)

The Confucius Institute delivers regular teacher training workshops combining our rich experience of teaching in the UK and the expert knowledge of Chinese language through our partner Beijing Normal University.

They are offered for free to those who are already teaching locally or who aspire to teach Chinese as a second language.

In addition, our Chinese Director observes teaching in Chinese community schools and advises head teachers on language learning.

We have established an extensive network with local schools and institutions where Chinese is taught as part of the curriculum, such as Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester Grammar School and the Swire Chinese Language Programme.

As a HSK and YCT test centre, we can help schools to administer YCT tests to their pupils and advise on the syllabuses and teaching materials for this test.
