Location: Hotel Pullman Melbourne On The Park, Melbourne, Australia
Facilitators: Helena Sobulis, School Support and Evaluation Officer & Graham Ranger, Director of 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 Evaluation 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 Evaluation Teams for the first time, as well as for experienced volunteers who wish to become familiar with the CIS International Accreditation, 2016.

The workshop will cover various aspects of participation on a team evaluation, including:
- analysing a school’s Self-Study
- becoming familiar with the Evaluation Team Report format;
