The Education Committee supports all levels of British educational development in China and the UK. We work to connect and promote businesses in this sector to support their growth and development. Let’s connect.

Let's Connect

Our purpose

We advocate on behalf of British educational institutions who operate in China or who receive Chinese students in the UK. We actively share knowledge and insights to enable better awareness of education policy and to improve educational development from primary level, all the way through to tertiary, vocational and professional education in China.
