The Edinburgh Chinese Education Centre was initiated by a group of professionals who are enthusiastic about spreading Chinese education overseas and the Chinese culture. The centre was founded in June 2017, located in the city of Edinburgh- the capital of Scotland.
The Centre is committed to providing a high quality, distinctive learning experience in the Chinese language and culture for children from all social groups. In the aspect of Chinese language education, we focus on the development of the students’ ability to understand and use the language, emphasizing all-round progress in the four language skills “listening, speaking, reading and writing”. The centre utilizes flexible and diverse teaching methods, including multimedia teaching and entertainment, all in order to maximize the initiative and interest of our pupils to learn Chinese. The centre encourages students to participate in different levels of YCT Chinese Proficiency Test and the Scottish SQA mandarin exam, therefore they will be subjected to an assessment to showcase their own proficiency in the Chinese language , we will aim personalize their learning experience under the guidance of their teachers. In our centre, Chinese learning can be a fun and full of a sense of accomplishment. The centre encourages and creates opportunities for students to actively participate in cultural exchange and volunteer activities. Our centre aims to cultivate our young people and equip our next generation with both a Chinese and Western view of life, and lay a solid foundation for their personal life, social life and career development in future.
Our centre has a team of highly qualified teachers. Our teachers are all experts in overseas Chinese teaching. They are experienced in teaching in Chinese schools or local state / private schools. Four of them have been awarded with the title of ‘UK outstanding Chinese language teachers’, two of them are qualified with Scottish teacher credentials, three teachers are currently working in local mainstream school.
The Centre has a dedicated and enthusiastic management team. Our team members have held various management positions in Chinese schools. They are good at managing educational organizations. At the same time, they themselves are parents, well aware of the expectations of parents and children, and understand the difficulties encountered by our children at all stages of Chinese learning. In many ways our centre differs from many of other Chinese schools. We are confident in our new philosophy of overseas Chinese education. Please join us if you are in agreement of our philosophy.
