Teaching Chinese

There are several ways to become a Chinese language teacher in Scotland. Scottish schools hire language assistants to teach Chinese language classes, but to become fully registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTC) you will need to obtain a PGDE.

For teachers interested in developing or incorporating Chinese language or culture into your school curriculum, there are many resources available through Learning and Teaching Scotland and the GLOW intranet. Support and resources for continuing professional development  are available through a number of organisations, including:

  • The Scotland China Education Network (SCEN)
  • The British Council
  • The Confucius Institute for Scotland

This section includes information for teachers and students interested in the new Scottish Chinese language qualifications.
