Activities for teachers

UCLan are following official guidance around social distancing measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  We are continually updating guidance for our staff, students and visitors and we are trying to limit as far as possible the spread of the virus across our campus and wider community.  We are therefore currently postponing our outreach activity for the foreseeable future.   The situation will be continuously under review and we will be able to honour commitments to events later in the academic year where possible. We are also using this time to develop our offering and to make arrangements for the next academic year. If you would like to liaise with our team regarding any enquiries or suggestions for activity, please contact and a member of our team will be in touch.

How to Introduce Chinese language and culture to schools

UCLan Confucius Institute is able to help you to introduce Chinese language and culture classes into your school. We can provide teacher conferences to improve the teaching style of current and prospective teachers, and to keep you up to date with the Chinese syllabus. We can arrange a Chinese language and culture workshop to introduce teachers to the subject before classes are introduced to your school. Your language teachers may also like to attend our evening course 'Introduction to Chinese Language & Culture for MFL Teachers'. We can also offer Chinese culture classes and general advice on how to encourage students' interest in Chinese language and culture, including Chinese activity days.
