Corporate Training - In-house Delivery

Enterprising Solutions

The growth of China as one of Australia’s most important markets for exports and investment has encouraged Australian companies to accelerate the development of language and cultural skills amongst individuals and teams.

The Confucius Institute has had a long association with the government and business sector. We were an early leader in developing Chinese (Mandarin) language and cultural programs offered as in-house training. Over the years we have refined and enhanced these programs, ensuring they always capture the essence of contemporary Chinese business and social relationships.

Our in-house training can be tailored to meet the particular needs of an individual employee, team or a whole company. On-site training is not only flexible; it is also highly efficient and relevant, helping to build employee participation and engagement.

Language courses can be created for solo learners or for groups of up to six.

They are particularly suited to those who:

  • manage business ties with Chinese partners;
  • focus on Chinese market development;
  • are unable to commit to fixed-schedule classes at Campus
  • appreciate a focussed environment and a flexible approach to learning

In-house delivery is available for sites in Sydney’s CBD or around the University of Sydney Camperdown Campus.

If your group is larger than six people, we are happy to design alternate solutions.

For larger groups, we offer sessions and briefings on Chinese culture, business etiquette and the strategy for building good business and social relationships.

We focus on:

  • avoiding the common mistakes made by those new to Chinese culture;
  • understanding the subtexts of conversational exchanges;
  • the history and importance of common social customs and traditions;
  • Chinese culture core values and popular thinking
