One of the ways Nord Anglia Education sets itself apart from its competitors is the opportunity for staff to attain their master’s in international education through King’s College London (KCL). This two year course, consisting of weekly online seminars, reading, reflection tasks, and assignments, is proving to be incredibly stimulating.
Twice a year, staff are invited to King’s College London for face-to-face lectures in a weeklong residential. These intense weeks are great opportunities to discuss topics such as international mindset development in students, globalisation, and third culture kids, to name a few. For the duration of the week, instructors at King’s College London placed each staff member in a group and assigned a tutor who served to answer questions, support and facilitate the course.
Of course, having a 50 member cohort each year brings a welcome opportunity for collaboration. We are fortunate that Nord Anglia Education is a family of 46 schools worldwide, each with their own identity on the international stage. This course gives us rich exposure to different teaching practises, school cultures, and various curricula allowing us to share expertise, and build a strong sense of community.
