Enrichment Sessions

Enrichment Sessions

Dragons in Europe runs a very popular Mandarin Chinese enrichment programme for Years 6-8 in UK preparatory and secondary schools. This programme is perfect for students that have finished their exams and who consequently have flexibility in their timetable to start learning about the fundamental basics of Chinese language and culture.


We have a team of over 50 engaging, charismatic and experienced teachers whom we provide for running enrichment sessions. Each teacher that we provide to a school is legally allowed to teach in the UK, they are DBS checked and all references have been contacted and verified by Dragons in Europe.

Enrichment provision can either be one-off or regular weekly sessions. Our minimum time requirement is 1 hour’s teaching per week. We have a fixed hourly pro rata rate, we do not charge for transport, and we ensure that the school parents receives half-termly progress updates.

Our team of Teaching Coordinators will continually visit and observe our teachers to ensure that we meet all expectations both in terms of teacher quality and giving students access to a variable and exciting class dynamic.

Teachers teach in alignment with either our Primary School Chinese or Cambridge Chinese for Beginners curricula. Textbooks and online portal access are provided to all students. To see the teaching materials, please click here.
