Staff Development


Staff Development

The British School is highly committed to the continuing professional development of its staff. We recognise the great importance of training our staff to ensure that they are up-to-date with the best international pedagogy and practices so as to maximise our students’ learning outcomes. We believe that a life-long learning is both challenging and motivational.

As well as on-going weekly training, TBS hosts a biennial educational conference, which is available for all of our own staff, as well as teachers from other schools. We invite renowned speakers from the world of education to present keynote speeches and deliver dynamic workshops that are aligned to our school’s strategic goals and objectives.

Staff Training

Our staff also undertake regular training in a variety of other ways. For example, staff are trained in the use of learning technologies so that they can apply these to support students’ learning in the classroom and beyond. Many of our teachers have been encouraged, and supported, to study for Masters Degrees in education. All staff are kept up-to-date with curricula developments in our various curriculum stages such as: the International Early Years Curriculum; the International Primary Curriculum; Cambridge International IGCSEs; and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Staff engage in online training, including longer courses provided by Harvard Project Zero, to engage in action research and to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.

Our Assistant Teachers are provided with a rigorous two-year training programme to prepare them to become outstanding teachers for the rigours of our curriculum. Many of our teachers are examiners for international examinations, and some are also invited to evaluate schools around the world as part of visiting accreditation teams.
