This session is part of BritCham Shanghai’s SDG event series and focuses on SDG 4 Quality Education.

The threshold of quality education is not just met by literacy and numeracy. Moreover, it is a system designed to help children and youth reach their full potential and enter society as full and productive citizens.

Education nowadays shall focus on all-rounded development, including the physical, mental, social, and cognitive development of each student regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, or geographic location.

And the learning should not stop after the school education. Adults shall be able to access all kinds of learning opportunities to achieve their personal fulfilment.

At this webinar, BritCham Shanghai is delighted to bring together speakers from K12 schools, Higher Education and Vocational Education sectors. They would share with us the key components of quality education and how they can be achieved through collective efforts.
