Teaching and learning of Mandarin in your school

Invest in your own professional development, link with a school in China, or encourage teaching Mandarin and Chinese culture in your school through the Hanban funded visit.

Chinese Bridge is offering an exciting opportunity for school leaders, heads of languages, and local authorities.

Successful applicants will be offered a place on a week’s visit to China from 30 October- 3 November and will be invited to take part in a pre-departure briefing to prepare for the visit.

Hanban are considering applications from Wales as a priority but there is only 60 places available.

Applications close 12:00 - 23 June.

To encourage participation, a travel grant of £500 will be provided by the Welsh Government for up to five schools in Wales.

Travel, accommodation and expenses in China will be covered by the programme.
