30th Anniversary – Taylor's International School

Teaching & Learning

Integration of Quantum Learning into teaching

The school has over the last 10 years worked with the Quantum Learning Network (QLN) from the United States of America to provide yearly Professional Development for teachers. All teachers are Quantum Learning certified. Quantum Learning is a methodology that allows teachers to have the greatest impact on a child’s learning. It does this by using the way a child’s brain works to determine the best strategies. As a consequence, learning is tailored to children, and not teachers, and makes learning joyful, meaningful and challenging.

  • In 2020, TIS becomes the first school in the world to be recognised as a Quantum Learning Distinguished School
  • In 2021, TIS offers the Quantum Learning in Teaching (Q-LiT) programme for undergraduates and postgraduates of Taylor’s University’s School of Education

Teacher empowerment for enhancing students learning

Empowering teachers through Professional Development is the foremost of the school's success in teaching and learning. After the international curriculum was introduced in 2011, teachers were empowered to enhance students' learning experience to an international standard.

  • IGCSE examinations subject training
  • Cambridge International Education Conferences and Training

Teacher collaboration to enable learning at high levels

Professional Learning Circles were formed with small groups of teachers to allow them to share the best teaching practices in the classroom to maximize students participation, comprehension, competency, reflection and self-assessment.

Digital transformation and improvement

As digital technologies continue to redefine the way we live, the school has expanded the use of technology throughout all aspects of learning. This direction will continue in the coming years, demonstrating what impact technology has on the learning process and how students naturally embrace it.
