Professional development for teachers
In order to support the long-term provision of Mandarin language teaching in Wales, we invest in Continuing Professional Development opportunities for local teachers.
Each year we organise two intakes to our six-week Introduction to Mandarin for teachers courses, provided after school hours and designed especially for busy teaching professionals to give a basic introduction to Mandarin. Once completed, teachers are able to progress on to one of our established part time courses for adults in Chinese language, fully funded, where they can work towards a 10 credit level 3/4 module in Chinese.
In addition to providing language teaching we also support a vibrant community of Mandarin teachers across Wales through our quarterly newsletters and regular Forums. Both offer the opportunity to share best practice and exchange ideas on Mandarin teaching with other teachers across Wales.
