Company Description

ASDAN is both a curriculum development organization and an examination board, which provides a wide variety of courses, resources and qualifications that teachers use to recognize and reward activities undertaken by young people outside of their formal academic subject work. ASDAN develops and accredit skills for learning, employment and living. It was founded 36 years ago and now works with 6,000 schools, colleges and education providers across the UK. Its headquarters are in Bristol, England.

In 2011 ASDAN formed a partnership with SEED International to create ASDAN China, with an office in Beijing. Our activities range from work with high schools across China, to running unique mini-MBA programs in Europe, UK & USA, to an intensive Model United Nation conferences in the USA, to X-Lab programs in University of Göttingen, to participation in Silk Road cultural trips across China, and to volunteer programs in Hainan.

Currently, there are over 13,000 Chinese students involved in ASDAN programs each year, and the number is growing very fast. Because of this rapid growth ASDAN China is looking to recruit graduates from EU/UK/US/HK universities to join its young and dynamic team in our Beijing office. Currently we have 50 people in Beijing, with 20% international staff, and the remainder Chinese nationals. 90% of our staff have been with the company for at least 12 months.
