Last weekend the leadership team of the British International School Ukraine went to the Dnipro campus to have a two-day strategic development planning workshop initiated by the principal, Mr. David Cole.
One of the biggest questions for discussion was the School Development Plan which focused on areas ranging from government, leadership and management to teaching and learning, to information technology. The team also discussed some key policies, such as Assessment policy, Language and Reading policy as well as subject option choices for the students.
The workshop also provided a chance for campuses’ administrators to share proven and innovative methods in teaching and administrating at all levels of international education and promoted collaborative excellence between the 4 campuses of the British International School Ukraine.
“We were able to explore a wide range of school development issues and how to match our developments with our beliefs about student learning”, said Mr. James Costain, Head of Kyiv Pechersk school. “It has been very rewarding to discuss this whilst looking for improvements in our assessments and our curriculum programme within the British International School of Ukraine”.
“I really appreciated the chance for open, honest and frank discussion”, said Ms. Pauline Westwood, Head of Nivki Secondary school. “There is a wealth of experience around the table but also completely different educational experiences, both personally and professionally. This weekend made me realise that between us, we will have the solution to any problem that the future may bring”.
