Sian Marsh, Director for Early Years and Initial Teacher Training, will be in China as part of the UK-China bilingual teacher training conference supported by the Department for International Trade.
As Richard Burn, HM Trade Commissioner for China says, “The UK is a world leader in providing educational resources from preschool to university and beyond. Our strength comes from various areas, including a holistic, enquiry-based approach to learning and teaching, underpinned by the mature and effective teacher training system in the UK, which offers a wide range of programmes targeted at different levels of teaching and management roles in schools.”
Best Practice Network’s mission is to make a positive difference to children and young people by developing education professionals worldwide through accredited qualifications and blended learning. Our candidates achieve formal qualifications in teaching, school leadership, special educational needs (SEN), early years and other areas.
Our partners, in the UK and overseas, work with us as training centres for practitioner-led delivery. We also work with governments, schools and nursery groups to design, develop and deliver professional development programmes on a regional and national basis.
We have recently trained 5,000 school leaders, 3,000 teaching assistants, 2,000 Early Years teachers and 1,200 SEN Coordinators. In 2018, 98% of candidates said they would recommend us to a colleague and we continued our 100% pass rate for Early Years Initial Teacher Training.
