New Hanban tutors arrive in Cardiff University

Cardiff Confucius Institute was delighted to welcome four new Chinese tutors from Hanban on 25 February 2014. The four new tutors will be based in three of Cardiff Confucius Institutes Confucius Classrooms –  St Cenydd Comprehensive in Caerphilly, Cathays High School and Lansdowne Road Primary School in Cardiff.

The tutors will be hosted by Cardiff Confucius Institute for two years and in that time will deliver Mandarin and Chinese culture classes throughout schools in Wales, as well as working within the Lifelong Learning Centre at Cardiff University to provide Language tuition to adult learners and undergraduates.

Cardiff’s flagship Pathways programme is a chance for everyone to study a degree.

Information evening on Thursday 21st November at 6.30pm

front-coverCardiff University’s Centre for Lifelong Learning provides a programme of pathways towards a degree for adults who may not have considered university education was an option in life.  Pathways are part-time, taught in the evening and at weekends and funding may be available.  Those interested are encouraged to come along to an event on Thursday 21st November at 6.30pm at the Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning.  The evening will be an informal opportunity to discuss degree options, funding and study support.  Students may also enrol.

Each Pathway has been developed with a busy adult learner in mind. For the majority, prior qualifications are not required to begin a pathway.   All courses are taught by knowledgeable and experienced tutors and take place in a friendly and nurturing environment.

Inside Narratives will be launched on the evening as one of the Centre’s NEW pathways. It is a collaboration between Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning (LEARN) and the School of English, Communication and Philosophy (ENCAP) at Cardiff University. The evening will provide the opportunity to learn more about the fascinating topics the pathway will cover, how the pathway can support your creativity, study the stories we use to make sense of life, and how to further your imaginative ideas. Enrolments are open now for Inside Narratives which will start from January 2014.

Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning is additionally launching the Cardiff Business School’s new pathway which will allow students to study towards a degree in Accounting (BSc) or Accounting and Finance (BSc). The new business courses will teach skills for those interested in a career in financial accounting, the core elements of financial management and will familiarise students with the concepts and methods through which management operates.
