Lifelong learners - BIS HCMC

Our community of lifelong learners

Discover how the BIS HCMC professional development programme ensures all our teachers remain at the forefront of 21st century learning.

Learning from a teacher who has stopped learning is like drinking water from a stagnant pond.

I have it on good authority that the above is an Indonesian proverb, but will gladly stand corrected. Provenance aside, it is a phrase that I agree with wholeheartedly – I know that your children’s teachers would say the same. I feel very fortunate to be a part of a community of lifelong learners at BIS HCMC. Even before the start of term, whilst students were still enjoying the comfort of their beds at 07:45am, our teachers were engaged in a comprehensive 5-day programme of INSET (In-Service Education and Training), with topics ranging from the IBDP Extended Essay to Safeguarding, from integrating the latest learning technologies in the classroom to First Aid. This programme was entirely led by our in-house team of experts – your children’s teachers – 21 enlightened pedagogues facilitated these sessions, reflecting the breadth and depth of experience we share at BIS.

With the term now well underway, your children’s teachers will continue to grow and develop professionally through training opportunities in the SE Asia region, Nord Anglia Education’s burgeoning online library containing over 3000 academic titles and postgraduate Masters study opportunities at King’s College London to name but a few. Your children’s teachers will also meet regularly throughout the academic year to engage with professional learning and research, choosing from 11 routes of rigorous and engaging study and practice-based learning.

Together, as a community of lifelong learners, we ensure that your children drink from a healthy fountain of learning – no stagnant ponds here at BIS!
