International School Report Launch

08 September 2016


Demand for international school in China is rising rapidly, and not just among expatriate families. For the many Western expats who come to China to live and work, as well as others from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, selecting a school has always been a priority. But now more Chinese families are also seeking an overseas-style education for their children at home in China, complete with the different teaching styles, curriculum and multidimensional environment that it brings.

Based on this demand, CBBC has completed a report on the 'China International Schools Market', the aim of this report is to provide support to UK schools to become China ready. CBBC will be hosting a launch event in London to introduce this report. We have invited a number of expert speakers from DIT, ISC Research, COBIS and Bird & Bird to share their thoughts and experiences with us. 

This event will also offer UK schools a 1-2-1 matchmaking opportunity to engage with school principals from China to discuss further collaboration.  

The event will focus on the following topics:

  • What are the features of an international education in China, opportunities and challenges, laws and regulations
  • Chinese Bilingual School vs. International School: two models, Integration of Chinese and Western Cultures
  • Successful stories & case studies of introducing UK schools to China
