The background to our Annual Stakeholders' Roundtable is the changing face of education at all levels. Until recently the UK's main government player was the British Council; members in the education field were aware of their support thanks to regular annual meetings with them. However, over the last 18 months members have also become aware of UKTI and CBBC's growing interest in education, which has made it important to clarify the roles of all three organisations to ensure we are all pulling together to support British education in a very competitive world market.
Early in 2014 we held our first roundtable to include representatives of BC, UKTI and CBBC. The representatives gave short presentations on their roles and we experienced a very lively Q&A session. At the time UKTI and CBBC had not made clear decisions on their future initiatives, but UKTI has now identified four key areas of development and is establishing a small specialist team in Beijing, and CBBC has set down its main areas of interest, in particular employability and entrepreneurship.
The membership of the Chamber/CBBC's Education Forum consists of education companies, university representatives and international schools and we have a wealth of experience not only in the UK, but more importantly in China too, which can benefit both UKTI and CBBC in their new and expanding roles.
We are fortunate to welcome the key representatives of each organisation to this roundtable - Jazreel Goh from the British Council, Michael Charlton from UKTI and Simon Stewart from CBBC - who will update us on their experiences and plans to ensure the continuing success of British education in China.
