The UCL IOE Confucius Institute is a national advice centre for the teaching of Chinese in schools. Our support includes curriculum planning, teaching materials, teacher training and research. We have an extensive network of secondary and primary Confucius Classrooms across England, schools which have both Chinese language and learning about China firmly embedded in their curriculum and which give advice, support and taster class to other schools intending to start teaching Chinese in their local area.
Kingsford Community School is a Confucius Classroom based in London that is committed to developing the teaching of Chinese and have achieved great success with the subject in recent years.
