A trip by Chinese teachers to schools in Aberdeen has been hailed a success by organisers and participants.
Nineteen head teachers from Guandong Province were in the city visiting secondary schools and attending seminars to gain insights into school leadership and management.
The visitors also went to primary schools in Aberdeen where pupils are learning Mandarin. Delegates participated in some inter-active ‘learning’ with pupils and teachers.
This is the second Education Leadership Learning Exchange (ELLE) organised by the University of Aberdeen and South China Normal University in conjunction with Aberdeen City Council. The first was in 2010.
Dr Anne Halsall, from the University of Aberdeen’s School of Education, said: “The visit has gone extremely well. We have had a great team of interpreters as our guests speak little, if any, English but they have an amazing capacity for understanding and have been engaged in learning through asking really pertinent questions.”
The visit concluded with a roundtable discussion in which the delegates shared their thoughts on the roles of head teachers in Guangdong Province and Aberdeen.
A special ‘graduation’ ceremony followed in which Professor Margaret Ross commended the Delegates on their active participation.
