For those interested in teaching Chinese in the state sector two things are required. Firstly, fluency in Chinese language and secondly a General Teaching certificate achieved by undertaking a Post Graduate Diploma in Education as offered by Morayhouse College of Education.
For those already teaching in the state, private or community sector the Confucius Institute for Scotland runs an ad hoc programme of CPD classes which focus on the pedagogy of teaching Chinese. These are led by or coordinated by the University of Edinburgh’s Chinese Language Programme DIrector Dr Zhu Zhu. You can register your interest in future CPD training here, check our website regularly, sign up to our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter to ensure you do not miss any forthcoming events.
