Directors and staff of ten Confucius Institutes from around the UK met in Edinburgh for a full day meeting to discuss operational and development opportunities for CINUK (Confucius Institute Network, UK).
The growth of the Confucius Institute network in the UK is shown by the increased geographical spread and extended reach of the partners. With ten tertiary education based Institutes now in the UK and twenty Confucius Classrooms across the country, demand in this area is one which, against most trends, is expanding. This expansion is mirrored elsewhere in the world with new partnerships being established which will take the number of Institutes to around 300.
By working together CINUK members aim to manage costs, expand the programme of activities and share knowledge and best practice with each other.
