Administered by Buckingham International School Education (BISE) based in Beijing, this course takes one academic year and is suitable for teachers of all year groups in China.  

The course itself is a 37-week school-based course, during which time trainee teachers work under the guidance of a school-based mentor (appointed by the school in which they work) and receive weekly tutorials to review progress, discuss pedagogy and set targets. It is available in most subjects and to all age levels. 

Trainees are assigned a university-trained BISE tutor who will visit their school three times in the year to assess their progress and guide their development. A visit takes the best part of a full day as the tutor will need to observe three lessons, give feedback (including one paired feedback session with the mentor), meet with the mentor, give e-portfolio guidance to the trainee, and tackle any issues that may have arisen.

Trainees are judged against the English Teachers’ Standards and are required to provide evidence of reaching the required standard via an online e-portfolio.

In addition, trainees are required to write three academic essays during the year and follow a weekly programme of training and readings on-line. 

Trainees will be expected to attend eight training days during the course hosted by BISE in China and on-line. There may also be opportunities to attend residential training in UK at an extra cost.

Apart from September start, spring intake is also available for this course. For more details, please contact us.

For 2021, the course will be conducted in English.
