A follow up news story from China Daily reports that:

Training approximately 5,000 teachers worldwide a year through its online and classroom courses, TEFL Scotland looks to extend its services to English teachers and teachers of other subjects in China by offering educational tours abroad — particularly to the UK — in addition to its internationally recognized TEFL courses, after it entered the Chinese market last year.

About 20 English teachers from middle and high schools in Beijing will join the first training tour to the UK at the end of August, he said.

As part of the tour, teachers will have the chance to visit at least six different regions of the UK and have TEFL training in London during a 10-day trip, he said.
