Events & China Challenge Days


Due to its size, scale, strategic vision & capabilities, whatever China does will have an impact on the world in terms of climate change, supply chains, technological advance & access to global resources. Additionally, we know that young people in the UK today are disadvantaged in cultural know-how when compared to their Chinese peer group. When knowledge means power and ultimately access to jobs, we fill a gap in vital 21st century learning by delivering the building blocks to create a ‘China-literate’ generation. Rich in mystery, world-changing innovations, cuisine, history, culture, diversity and resilience, China offers so much that will intrigue young learners, build their global outlook, foster tolerance and challenge perspectives. Our programmes are designed for curriculum enrichment and we offer off-timetable ‘China Challenge Days’ for whole year groups. We take pupils on a journey of discovery about China sewing seeds of curiosity about the nation that is impacting the modern world the most. Pupils access knowledge about China whilst making connections across multiple curriculum subjects, including history, language, politics, geography, maths and science.

Our China Challenge Days are targeted at all of the major key stages with age-appropriate activities and content building skills and learnings accordingly using a variety to tools including including individual work, extension tasks, group-work activities and the development of key life skills, such as debating, role-play and public-speaking. Choose from our range of China Challenge Days aimed at different Key Stages and themed around people, places, events in history and well-being.

Engage with China’s off-timetable curriculum enrichment programmes are available across the key stages covering themes from global sustainability goals, society, innovation, geography, history and wellbeing/PSHE.

This programme is fantastic. Everyone should get involved with Engage with China. I learnt more about China in one day than I have done in the whole of my life.

Engage with China helps pupils to look more globally and to see the big picture. It ticks the cultural capital box.
