When the BSME CPD Programme began in earnest, in 2011, we had only half a dozen schools officially listed as ‘host schools’. To date, thirty-five schools have already hosted for us and we now have forty-seven schools (approximately 65% of the total membership!) registered as willing hosts. That is a fantastic statistic and a real testament to the credibility of the the rapidly growing CPD Programme.

Such keen support is not only much appreciated, it is also essential to the success of the programme. Without it, the BSME CPD Programme simply could not run in the manner in which it does currently. Our sincere thanks go to all our host schools across the region.

How should host schools book their free places?

To claim host school free places, you will need to fill in the Host School Free Place form. Please click on the link below to download the form.

Booking Form - Host School Free Place

Please email this form to Sam via cpdassistant@bsme.org.uk before the course booking deadline. Please DO NOT register your free places online - all delegates registered online will be charged. Should host schools wish to book any additional (chargeable) places, they should do so on-line, in the ‘Programmes and Courses’ Section of the CPD area.

Kind Regards,

BSME CPD Coordinator

Special Needs Provision

At the British International School, Abu Dhabi, we deliver the English National Curriculum from the age of 3-16 and the IB Diploma Programme and the AS Levels for the 16-18 year old students in their last two years of school life.

We do this because we believe that the style and structure of these qualifications along with the depth of subject knowledge taught, prepare students better for both university and working life than any other curriculum available worldwide.

In addition to the high quality experience within the Abu Dhabi learning community our Global Classroom initiative ensures that students are collaborating with other students from our schools around the world. This makes their learning experience uniquely international.

Our High Performance Learning strategy offers a contemporary approach to the private school experience. It is developed by leading educationalist and our Director of education, Professor Deborah Eyre.

High Performance Learning is unique to Nord Anglia Education. Our approach inspires and supports all children to achieve academic and social success that is not constrained be outdated notions of 'ability'.

We invest significant time and energy carefully selecting the teachers that join our community.

Once they join, they have opportunity to be part of Nord Anglia University where they work with the finest teachers around the world to apply the latest developments in education to their teaching practice.
