Child Protection Workshops

A global team of experts who are world-renowned in all aspects of child protection and student well-being deliver a workshop programme to support educators learning about critical steps in protecting students. Our workshops cover the foundation of child protection, followed by more focused workshops to go deeper into topics such as setting school policies, managing school disclosures, recruiting practices and more.

Advancing global citizenship and intercultural learning in your school

What does global citizenship mean to your students and school community? How do you define and implement global citizenship development and intercultural learning? Many schools that we support along their school improvement journeys grapple with how to envision this work. Our conversations usually lead to two challenging questions: How do we assess the impact of our programmes, and how do we know whether students have indeed developed the traits of a global citizen? Two new CIS workshops will support you with this work.

Tackling Racism Workshop Series: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our Schools and Universities

Progress is dependent on strong foundational concepts that are grounded in being self-reflective, deliberate, and evaluative. Taking time to develop and strengthen our foundations—individually and institutionally—is essential, no matter how progressive or rudimentary we are in our thinking and actions. We can help you do the groundwork via three foundation workshops. They focus on implicit biases, intercultural competencies, and structures and systems. They are each 2.5 hours long, virtual, and interactive. You will explore ways to evaluate your practices and take positive action. Learn more about these workshops.

Conferences & events for university guidance

CIS offers a unique opportunity to facilitate links between guidance/university counsellors in schools and international university admissions professionals worldwide. Together, they support students in the transition from school to university. Through in-person and virtual conferences, regional institutes, college & university fairs and events, we aim to enhance communication and provide networking opportunities for guidance counsellors, colleges and universities across our global community.

Data Protection & Cybersecurity Workshop

It is increasingly important for international schools to understand data protection and cybersecurity, yet leaders struggle to understand what actions are required and how to comply with new legal requirements such as GDPR. Our in-person and online workshops are designed and tailored to the needs of international schools to support them with this challenge. The workshop content is based on recent data protection and cybersecurity research and will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to strengthen your associated policies and procedures in line with CIS accreditation standards.
