International Learning Opportunities for Students
At the International Schools Partnership (ISP), learning is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to continually provide the best learning opportunities possible for our students and their families. We believe that as part of our students’ learning journey it is important that they have the chance to experience learning outside of the classroom and connect with other ISP students across the world. As a global group of schools our students benefit from being part of a wider international community, which provides many additional learning and cultural opportunities.
We want every ISP student to have the chance to experience learning outside the classroom, repeatedly practising life skills and connecting with other ISP students across the world.
In 2019, we launched the ISP Buddy Exchange Programme, the ISP Model United Nations, and the ISP International Summer Camp. ‘Amazing’, ’Educational’, ‘Empowering’, ‘Inspirational’, ‘Life-Changing’, and ‘Unique’ are just some of the words used to describe these experiences by our students, parents, and colleagues.
Due to the incredible success of all our programmes, we have expanded our International Learning Opportunities for Students (ILOS), and now run eleven different ILOS for students ranging from 5–18 years of age.
Some projects take place online, others in school, and many include in-person experiences abroad. The ILOS cover a wide range of topics and skills so that there is something for every student, no matter what their passions or interests are.
The ILOS provide amazing learning experiences that enable our students to:
- Connect and share with other ISP students from other countries and build friendships
- Develop their language and communication skills
- Apply learning in contexts outside the formal curriculum
- Gain knowledge and develop their understanding about different cultures and traditions
- Develop transferable skills including critical thinking, confidence, teamwork, and leadership
- Develop their understanding of their capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses
- Become a more responsible global citizen
