Accreditation Visiting Team Member Workshop | Moscow
Location: Moscow Economic School, Zamorenova Street, 29 Moscow 123022 Russian Federation
Facilitators: Lesley Stagg, School Support and Evaluation Officer & Stuart McLay, Associate Director School Support & Evaluation
For whom is this workshop intended?
A school accreditation programme encourages continuous school improvement through a process of self-study and peer evaluation. Schools participating in accreditation are visited by a team of experienced international educators who play an active role in evaluating the progress of the school, at the Team Visit stage, against high quality and rigorous international practices.
This workshop is designed for school leaders, teachers and business managers from CIS Member Schools that are accredited or are candidates for accreditation who wish to be considered for volunteer service on Accreditation Teams for the first time using the 8th Edition protocol of CIS International Accreditation.
The workshop is open to all individuals working in schools that are CIS Accredited/Committed Accreditation Candidates. However, fluent English speakers who are also speakers of Russian are encouraged to apply because of shortages of team members in these subjects and will be given preferential places. Russian speakers attending this course must also make themselves available to support a Team Visit within the next 18 months.
How will the workshop prepare me for participation in an accreditation team visit?
The workshop will cover various aspects of participation on a team evaluation, including:
- analysing a school’s Self-Study
- becoming familiar with the Visiting Team Report format;
- identifying major school strengths and areas for improvement;
- reaching a team decision for a recommendation about accreditation.
