Supported by the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban) in response to growing interest in Chinese language and culture, there are now over 290 Confucius Institutes worldwide, more than 80 of which are located across Europe. Performing a similar role to the British Council, the Alliance Française and the Goethe Institut, a major part of the Confucius Institutes’ work is to provide professional development support for teachers of Chinese. While mainly focusing on the teaching of Chinese as a foreign language, many of the teaching ideas and resources being developed are also relevant to teachers of Chinese as an additional language.
One of the ways that good practice is being shared across schools in the UK is through the establishment of Confucius Classrooms in different regions. These are schools which are recognised as centres of excellence in the teaching of Chinese. They are expected ‘to develop their own regional networks of schools which are teaching Chinese and about China and to function as a regional hub, playing a coordinating role for regional sharing of experience around Chinese and China.’ The initiative is being managed in England by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust:
Whilst many individual Confucius Centres have their own websites, there is also a central site managed by the Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters where a range of resources to support teachers is provided.
