June 22nd 2017 marked the official opening of the restored and refurbished UCL IOE Confucius Institute (IOE CI) building at 15 Woburn Square. This building is the base for IOE CI’s work – a teacher training, administrative and research centre.
The building established IOE CI as a Model Confucius Institute and will ensure that it continues to thrive and lead the drive to solve the key challenges for Mandarin Chinese teaching in schools.
Using the flexible seminar spaces for teacher training will ensure that the building is utilised to its full potential and will ensure that the most effective teaching practice can be developed for implementation in schools. The teacher training spaces enable the option for common themes to be discussed with larger groups of teachers and then smaller group activities and collaborative exercises to take place throughout the building.
The IOE CI building will serve to enable significant growth in the infrastructure for teaching Mandarin Chinese in English schools, and to establish London as the centre in Europe for Chinese teaching and learning in schools, with huge long-term benefits for children and young people and for the development of the bilateral relationship between the UK and China.
