Nord Anglia Education’s Professional Development at Oakridge

  • 7 June 2024

I am Swapna Vanam, PYP learning facilitator at Oakridge International school, Bengaluru. I am thrilled to share my professional development journey with the school.

Importance of Continuous Learning

As educators, we have a personal commitment to excellence in addition to our professional duty to pursue continuous learning. For teachers, choosing to pursue a post-graduate degree is a serious pledge to comprehending global educational paradigms and developing cross-border teaching techniques. The perfect place to start this life-changing adventure is Oakridge’s opportunity to study at King’s College, London.

Earning a Master’s Degree

King’s College is known for lively classrooms, distinguished teachers, and a diverse student body from around the world. Pursuing an advanced degree (Master’s in International Education) with Oakridge has been an enriching experience for me. Tutors at King’s challenge our pre-existing beliefs and practices with novel topics and viewpoints. The professional development programme facilitates critical thinking by offering challenging coursework and thought-provoking debates to broaden our pedagogical repertory.

Learning with Nord Anglia

I have completed seven years as an IB teacher and am keen to bring global perspectives and best practices to my classroom. There will be a long-term impact of professional development on the academic success and holistic development of our students. My efficacy as a teacher has improved by this integration, and the learners in my classroom can prosper in an interconnected world through my expertise in international educational methods.

Impact of Oakridge Professional Development

I experience transformation in my overall thought process as I progress in the Master’s in International Education from King’s College. It is larger than just a professional endeavour. This is in alignment with Nord Anglia’s goal of offering top-notch education – Engage in critical reflection & integration with a commitment to quality. Dedicated educators will be able to improve their methods and better equip the next generation of global citizens to succeed in an everchanging world.
