Venture for Schools in Mainland China
Founded in 2013, Venture Education has spent the past ten years supporting the international education sector in China, building meaningful networks, gathering intelligence, and supporting the growth of schools. We are educators, we are driven to help others, and we care about what we do.
See the offerings in detail below
News Summary (monthly)
Our concise and readable summary analyses hundreds of key news articles from 30 Chinese news sources every month. Understand what the government is really thinking, see what matters, and predict the future movements of the sector.
Policy Analysis (bimonthly)
We monitor and sift through every policy statement, guidance, and regulatory directive from the Ministry of Education, providing a bimonthly overview of routine changes, and an explanation of major new policies affecting the sector.
Insight Series (bimonthly)
These off-the-record, one-hour Q&As with Chinese experts from government, academia, and think tanks provide deep, frank, and on-the-ground insights that reveal some of the underlying priorities and ideologies shaping the landscape.
Key Reports (three every year)
Using our networks of thousands of teachers and parents in China, we are able to conduct extensive research to track motivations, experiences, challenges, and intentions which shape your teacher recruitment and student enrolment in our two flagship reports “Teachers in China” and “Parents in China”.
Our final report, Schools’ Choice, gives member schools an opportunity to vote on the topic that they would most like our research team to dig into.
Recruitment Support (ongoing)
Features in the TeachBetter newsletter position your school as a thought leader and school that cares about teacher development
Online and offline jobs fairs for hundreds of prospective teachers

Contact us whenever you like to ask questions, get advice, seek answers, or get our honest thoughts on what is happening. We work closely with the leadership of all of our subscriber schools to provide them with opportunities that will truly allow their school to stand out and flourish.
Topical updates (ongoing)
It’s not radical to say that the world of education in China is a changeable one. We deliver concise, one-page updates when big news stories drop, giving you the information you need to know.
Leadership in Action
Marketing & Admissions
School promotion (ongoing)
Feature your school on our LinkedIn with 4500+ followers; amplified by our team and their 20,000+ followers. Champion your unique history and achievements through our work behind the scenes on a number of prominent educational publications.
Student recruitment (ongoing)
Our co-founder, Zhubei, has a growing social media channel with an audience primarily composed of parents in China who are considering or undertaking the international education path with their children. She visits your school, or runs a session online, promoting what you do to a whole new audience. We get to know your school inside out and share information positively with everyone we meet; especially in parent communities around China.
We work really closely with marketing and admissions teams so we know what they are promoting and leading in order for us to align it with the work we are doing in public reports, events or other activities. We love to help!
Marketing & Admissions in action
Hungry for something a little more specific? We know that each school is different and so the above services just might not be enough for some members. This is why we have developed our premium subscription in order to give schools all of the services listed on the previous pages, plus an extra project personal to them. See below some of the bespoke projects we have done for our premium members:
Created, designed and launched a promotional campaign targeting embassies, sports groups, chambers and all other sources of foreign families in China to support foreign-passport holder enrollment.
After highly irregular A-Level POE results, we interviewed several subscriber schools, created a report, and lobbied the head of Cambridge exams.
Contacted 100 UK-based IB schools to arrange a formal partnership with a subscriber school in China.

Research report on alumni to establish a more resilient and sustainable alumni network that could contribute to the ongoing school community.
