Accreditation Team Secretary Workshop | Moscow

Date: Friday - 13 January, 2017
Time: 09:00 to 17:00

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 directed at administrative support staff 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.   In this capacity, individuals would be providing logistical and organisational support to the Visiting Team.

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 secretaries 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:

  • the approach required of a Team Secretary;
  • information about the role and duties;
  • guided practice in formatting the Visiting Team Report.
How will I benefit from participation on an Accreditation team visit?

If selected as a Team Secretary*, the Team Visit experience will:

  • provide you with an opportunity to practice your administrative and organisational skills in a different setting;
  • offer you a broadening, professionally developing experience through opportunities to see other schools in a focused manner;
  • offer opportunities for networking through collaboration with experienced international educators and leaders;
  • provide a demanding but valuable and enriching professional development experience, which may enrich your professional opportunities and career.

* Please note that Team Visit Member selection is based on the areas of need and qualifications. Participation in the workshop does not guarantee selection for a team.


There is no charge for participating in the training. There will be a break for lunch which will be kindly provided by the school.

Participants or their school are also expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs, if required.

Please note that participants travel and make arrangements at their own expense. In the event of the cancelation of this workshop, the individual is responsible for any and all costs incurred regarding associated arrangements. Each participant is responsible for obtaining their own travel insurance coverage in the event of cancelation or risk.
