Creating world-class international schools requires continuous professional learning on behalf of school leaders, teachers, and support staff. ISS professional learning initiatives give you a variety of events and networking opportunities to keep growing by providing ongoing learning, opportunities for networking, and the exchange of ideas and knowledge with a community of learners from around the globe.
ISS is here to meet the ever-changing needs of education and learning around the world with professional development for teachers and school administrators. Our interdisciplinary professional development opportunities are uniquely designed to provide support for your entire international school faculty and staff. We thoughtfully construct sessions for school leaders, educators, school operations, professional staff, and more. Our topics range from curriculum, assessment, social emotional learning, DEIJ, to marketing, budgets, and human resources.
International School Expertise and Focus
We harness a strong cohort of engaging, contemporary educators and facilitators, who are experts in their respective disciplines. In addition, all of our educational presenters are experienced international educators and understand the nuances of international schools. This means that the content in all of our sessions is squarely focused on the unique needs of international educators and staff in their critical roles of serving an international school community.

Our sessions include deep learning from experts in their field and include sharing and learning with fellow attendees. Through these constructivist activities, you gain tips and insights about what has been tried by others and the learnings gained. You also get an opportunity to include your unique experiences.
