We know that helping your staff to feel equipped and valued is key to realising your vision of excellence in you school. And with quality teachers in high demand in international schools, training and development has never been more important.
Straight to Teaching
Straight to Teaching is a tailor-made professional development programme enabling school staff to meet the English Teachers’ Standards and be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) without leaving their current school.
The programme helps school leaders like you take control of your teacher shortages by up-skilling and retaining trusted school staff, including unqualified teachers and teaching assistants. It makes use of your staff’s existing teaching experience to help you create a qualified teacher workforce.
This international programme is intended for school staff in international schools teaching the English national curriculum who will teach in the English language medium and will be most helpful for those teaching to a British or English based curriculum.
The International Postgraduate Certificate in Education (iPGCE) is Masters’ level, fully online learning programme that helps further the careers of education professionals, working outside the UK.
Your staff will undertake a combination of online and interactive study sessions, learning tasks, virtual seminars, work-place and online supported learning. They will be guided by their personal pathway tutor, and supported by their school mentor, who will be a suitable member of your school staff.
Our award-winning Biology, Chemistry, Computing, French, Geography, German, Mathematics, Physics and Spanish SKE programmes are designed to help teachers across the world to update or develop their current subject knowledge and to train to teach other specialist subjects.

Continuing Professional Development
Our award-winning online continuing professional development (CPD) courses will help your teachers and school staff to up-skill and become confident in new teaching concepts and key subject areas.
Covering innovative teaching techniques, practices and resources, these flexible, 100% online CPD courses encourage peer-to-peer learning and allow teachers to fit CPD around their existing school and personal commitments. We’ve partnered with the best educators and institutions so that teachers can learn from high quality tutors, but the most important learning happens in discussions with the other teachers on the course.
