HOW WE TEACH

At NAIS Dublin, we’re committed to recruiting only the best, most experienced and qualified teachers, dedicated to inspiring students to achieve anything they put their minds to.

OUTSTANDING TEACHERS MAKE OUTSTANDING SCHOOLS

As a member of the Nord Anglia family of premium international schools, NAIS Dublin has the reach to attract some of the world’s most sought-after educators. Our teachers have a wealth of experience acquired in posts around the world and we select them for their passion, expertise and ability to inspire young minds to achieve academic and personal success.


Ninety-five per cent of our parents say their child receives a high-quality education and is happy at school. That’s because our expert teachers know how to get the very best out of our students, by responding to their needs and believing in them.  Combined with this, our individualised approach to learning and pastoral care enables students to excel across all areas of the curriculum.

TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM AND AT HOME

TEACHER-LED TECHNOLOGY

NAIS Dublin uses cutting-edge EdTech to reimagine teaching, enhance student engagement and accelerate student learning.

Students have access to a wide variety of technologies which bring subjects to life, like iPads, drones, Spheros, 3D printers and interactive whiteboards. Students benefit from our 1:1 device programme from age 6, in which they become digitally savvy in preparation for their future education and beyond. Our world-class online learning platforms enable a seamless transition between class-based and home learning, which means students, parents and teachers can collaborate throughout the learning process, celebrating success and achievement right there in the moment!

 

HELPING OUR TEACHERS GROW

Children learn best when they’re having fun – and fun is never far away when our wonderful teachers are about!
  • Teachers at NAIS Dublin have rich international experience, which givens then a unique lens through which they educate.  They stay at the front of global education trends through Nord Anglia University, our online training and collaboration platform where teachers share resources and best practices with their peers worldwide.
  • Our teachers benefit from subject-specific training from leading learning organisations like MIT, Juilliard and King’s College. In fact, Nord Anglia offers teachers a leadership pathway through management training courses, culminating in our exclusive Master’s in International Education through King’s College itself.
  • Every IB Diploma Programme teacher at NAIS Dublin is certified and trained by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), meaning they have a deep comprehension of the teaching approach, methodology and assessment procedures required to help students achieve outstanding results.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

NAIS Dublin invests in teachers through world-class professional development programmes, enabling them to consistently hone their teaching skills. This ensures we’re always innovating and improving according to quality assurance and safeguarding measures. We continually assess our teachers against local and national benchmarks, as well as Nord Anglia’s stringent Quality Assurance framework.

 

Our Senior Academic Leadership team conduct regular peer observations and learning walks, ensuring continual refinement and optimisation of our curriculum and teaching methods. These empower every student in our care to realise their potential and succeed, no matter what they go on to do.
