COLLORATION WITH PARTNER AGENCIES
We work with the IB to encourage experienced candidates seeking positions in IB schools to establish professional portfolios with CIS Career & Recruitment Services. CIS member schools can access the portfolios of CIS Candidates through the Candidate Recruitment Hub. CIS Candidates can search and apply for positions at CIS IB Schools and other accredited CIS schools, while enjoying all the other benefits of being CIS Candidates.
Partnership with Queen’s University: new opportunities for schools recruiting teachers
Many of our member schools tell us that recently graduated educators bring a fresh perspective and enthusiasm to their schools, which often contributes to a much-needed dimension of diversity in the faculty. CIS has cemented a partnership with Queen’s University in Ontario to help prepare recent graduates to find their first positions abroad.
Queen’s University is one is one of Canada’s oldest degree-granting institutions, and the Faculty of Education is a highly regarded leader in promoting international education. Since the late 1980s, it has placed thousands of teachers in hundreds of countries. Along with Queen’s University, CIS sees this kind of partnership as central to putting the mission of “shaping the future of international education” into action that will benefit our member schools.
We are eager to see how this partnership will grow and enhance our commitment to serving our member schools’ staffing needs. We are encouraged by the positive feedback we have received about this new initiative so far. We hope that it demonstrates our ever-evolving leadership in connecting our schools with the best educators.
