Embark on a voyage of learning


Join ISH and Our 150+ members of Faculty and Staff

At ISH, we believe that everyone is a learner. This philosophy is embedded in our Professional Development (PD) programme which encourages both faculty and support staff to expand their knowledge base, their skills and their capacity to meet the ever-changing needs of our 21st century learners. We offer a generous range of opportunities throughout the year: workshops, local and international conferences, on-line courses and in-house offerings during four PD days that are built into our yearly calendar. We have brought globally-recognised workshop leaders to ISH in recent years to work with our faculty and staff. Our goal is always to ensure that an individual’s PD choices are closely aligned with her or his personal goals for the year as well as the over-arching goals of the school, which are found in the Action Plans developed within our respective Divisions (ECC, Junior School and Secondary School) and on a school-wide basis. We encourage colleagues to share their learning with peers so that everyone can benefit from the new knowledge gained.
