This session will illustrate a sustainable development model for the teaching and learning of Chinese in Scotland and England, respectively. In 2008, Scotland had only one Confucius Classroom in one school. By 2010 there were 10 Confucius Classroom Hubs serving 15 school districts and hundreds of schools. This presentation will describe a sustainable model used to promote and develop Chinese language and culture across the curriculum in Scottish schools and coordinated by a national agency working in partnership with school districts. The national model in Scotland is guided by a set of principles that are relevant to anyone interested in developing Confucius Classrooms and significantly increasing the number of teachers and students learning Chinese language and culture. In England, the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) is an independent membership organization dedicated to raising the achievement of young people in schools, through our “by schools, for schools” approach. The SSAT Confucius Institute has 34 Confucius classrooms developing Chinese and the study of China across schools in their area and a national fund to make support available to all schools in England introducing Chinese and to progress the core issues around teaching resources, teacher training and appropriate assessment for learners.
