On the 31st of August, BIEA met with a representative from the Department for International Trade (DIT) to discuss government support for its overseas programmes so that it can continue to expand its mission to export the best of British education overseas.

BIEA’s Early Years Chairman Chris Waterman led a discussion on EYFS quality assurance and how accreditation processes worked overseas and how BIEA was ready to ensure its own CPD qualifications met the rigorously high standards that had been laid out. The discussion also focused on teacher training programs, BIEA’s upcoming E-league accreditation program for overseas teachers and the details of the BIEA membership supermarket.

BIEA and the DIT look forward to continuing to work together in pursuing interests for British education in China, following the official line of the British government in promoting EYFS education overseas and helping UK educational services providers to grow.
