The Docent Training Course

With the improvement of comprehensive national strength, Chinese people who have a great desire for knowledge, are increasingly eager in understanding and studying world culture systematically. Museums and art galleries are some of the best ways for them to learn about the culture. The trend enhances the importance and charm of being a Mandarin docent in a museum and art galleries context.

Seeing such strong demand in the market, Ming-Ai (London) Institute and the UK China Culture Education Association decided to hold a short course on Docent Training (Mandarin Speaking) from November 18, 2019.


At the end of the course, students will receive a Certificate of Completion awarded by both institutes.

After obtaining the Certificate of Completion, you will receive a docent confirmation certificate by the UK China Culture Education Association after passing the on-site touring assessments in the British Museum, National Gallery, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, and Tate Modern Art Gallery.

This course is lectured by senior culture lecturer Ye Ming. He has been engaged in professional cultural teaching for nearly 20 years. He is looking forward to interested candidates with basic knowledge of culture and willingness in spreading world heritage culture.
