Support for British Schools Overseas

From working with British International Schools worldwide we know that a common concern is feeling isolated and a lack of effective support. We are already working with schools worldwide acting as their Appropriate Body and School Improvement Service, providing cost effective, quality assured and guaranteed support to meet their exact needs and requirements.

These relationships vary from a single day in-school consultancy to long-term support contracts covering all areas of school life.

At the same time, schools are more accountable than ever for the standard of education they provide, particularly in terms of the quality of teaching and learning, effective assessment practice that ensure student progress, behaviour and student welfare, and the impact of school leaders and managers on standards.

The rapidly changing world in which we live means that schools must continually adapt to ensure a relevant, high-quality education that will equip their learners for the future.

“We would like to thank BLT for the helpful and supportive approach they have shown us both this year and in previous years. We have found the process of managing our NQTs through their induction process well-structured and very good. The quality of materials to guide mentors and NQTs has been excellent. The online system has been easy to use by all parties; NQTs; Mentors; Induction Coordinator and Head Teachers. We have found BLT very friendly, efficient and quick to respond.”

Charlotte Hughes, RAK Academy Accreditation Coordinator, RAK Academy, UAE

“I have been incredibly happy with the support that I have received from BLT’s NQT service. As an overseas NQT, this can pose more of a challenge without the close geographical proximity and regular face to face contact. Nevertheless, BLT has ensured that I have always felt part of the NQT team. I wholeheartedly recommend choosing Buckinghamshire as an AB provider. You will certainly be greeted with friendly faces and motivated staff, who are so crucial in helping to support you in your first year of teaching.

Amy Curtis, current NQT, British International School, Stockholm

“BLT has been absolutely superb in answering all sorts of queries and concerns regarding my NQT induction. I would highly recommend the team to anyone wanting to complete their NQT both abroad or in the UK. They are extremely knowledgeable and approachable to help NQTs to fully complete their QTS. It has been a very straight forward and smooth process. The NQT coordinator has been hugely efficient, supportive and encouraging in all communication and dialogue. The online portal is really easy to use as you collect and upload your evidence online. BLT is your 'one stop shop' to getting your NQT induction and paperwork completed to move forward with your teaching career."

Shannon Cribbin, Fast-track NQT, British School, Alexandria

The support that the BLT offers through the rigorous and thorough AO programme is excellent and enables a quick and smooth transition into a fast track induction. The overall support that the BLT gives to schools is exceptional and through excellent communication and assessment visits they ensure both the AO Route and the NQT Induction is successful".
