COLLABORATIONS WITH PRESTIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS
The Juilliard School
In 2015 Nord Anglia Education and The Juilliard School announced a global collaboration to enhance performing arts education for students age 5-18. The program includes an embedded curriculum along with continued support and engagement with Juilliard alumni and affiliated artists. It also includes professional development for teachers, a summer school and private lessons.
The Music curriculum was rolled out in the British International School Bratislava in September 2016, while Dance curriculum will start in September 2018.
In addition to inspiring a love of learning for music, dance and drama, the collaboration with the Juilliard school develops students cultural awareness, international perspective and skills for life such as critical thinking, creativity, complex problem solving, people management, negotiation, etc.
MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
In September 2018, BISB will start with another exciting collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on STEAM subjects for students age 5-18. The collaboration will develop a new approach to implement science, technology, engineering, visual arts, and mathematics at BISB and across other 54 Nord Anglia schools worldwide.
Subjects traditionally taught in school do not necessarily give the knowledge and skills needed in an ever-changing world and the greatest discoveries in our century exist at the cross-section of subjects.
Core to the collaboration is the reflection of MIT's philosophy of 'Mens et Manus', 'mind and hand', which calls for a hands-on approach to problem solving. Students will learn directly from lecturers and students at MIT. STEAM discipline teachers at Nord Anglia will also benefit from unique professional development opportunities through annual workshops and ongoing training with MIT staff, hosted by the MIT Museum.
The United Nations have identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals), to transform our world and create a better future for our planet and everyone living on it. BISB students will work together to raise awareness of and take action on the goals, whilst researching and designing practical solutions to achieve them in our community.
