“Who wouldn’t want to work with Nord Anglia?”
Teachers make the greatest difference to any child’s education and at BIS Abu Dhabi we have a truly great team of teachers. The two key aspects of making sure the students have great teachers are:
- Recruit the best
- Ensure all our teachers are continually learning and getting even better
Recruiting The Best
At this time of year we undertake interviews to find new teachers. We receive applications from all over the world and the candidates are put through a challenging process to make sure they are right for BIS Abu Dhabi.
As the reputation of the school grows, alongside that of Nord Anglia Education, more and more high quality teachers wish to apply to work here - the quote at the beginning of this article is something that one of the potential teachers said to us this week. It is so exciting to meet amazing teachers who will be able to join the team here and help our students reach even greater heights.
Teachers Are Continually Learning
As we all know, the world doesn’t stop still! All of us have to keep on learning so that every day we can grow and aim to be better at what we do. Our Staff Training Day on Thursday is a wonderful opportunity for us to do just that.
Thursday is when our annual Learning Symposium takes place. Teachers from all over UAE are invited to attend and our teachers lead the workshops for their colleagues and for the visitors. This opportunity to share expertise within and beyond the school has a huge impact on our team and what can be achieved in lessons.
At the heart of all the above is the students. So much of their success will come down to the skills and the hard work of their teachers. The focus of the school on recruiting and training our teaching staff ensures that students at BIS Abu Dhabi continue to learn from the very best.
