Early Years Symposium with the British Vietnamese International School (BVIS)

Hosted by the British Vietnamese International School Hanoi (BVIS) with the support of the British Embassy Hanoi, we facilitated a symposium on early years education. 

Bringing together educators, administrators, and investors in early years the event provided an opportunity for all to discuss the important roles of early years education as well as on the theme of 'play - a pedagogy for learning and teaching'.

'Speaking at the event, the British Embassy's Head of Trade and Investment Hanoi, Mr. Harry Rawicz-Szczerbo, emphasised that the playful, holistic and child-focused approach should be encouraged to learning and development. The UK is committed to supporting Viet Nam with its experience and expertise in this regard.'
