We offer teachers the following free resources available to download and use straight away in the classroom:
Mandarin Ebooks - Our ebooks aim to support Chinese language learning at all levels.
L3 Resources - These resources will support non-specialist and specialist Chinese teachers with the implementation of Chinese as an L3. The resources favour a gentle progression and will help practitioners embed Chinese into their learning context.
SCILT and CISS are compiling a database of partners and stakeholders, including teachers from all sectors, who wish to become associate members of the SCILT/CISS team. Throughout the year, we may contact our associates if we are planning either a project or piece of work where we require additional capacity, expertise or advice.
As a SCILT/CISS associate we may contact you where we think your skills and experience could add value to the work of the team. This could include:
providing practical exemplification of current policy and theory
participating in/speaking at SCILT/CISS professional learning opportunities or promotional events
peer-reviewing documents and materials
taking part in short-life working groups
If you think you might like to work more closely with the team and help us enlarge the 'SCILT/CISS family', then please complete the registration of interest form.
