Invitation to participate in research on Teacher Supply in British International Schools

POSTED: January 29, 2020Category: AISA ArticlesBY: Richard Moire

COBIS would like to invite you and your school to participate in the second iteration of our research project looking at teacher supply and the movement of teachers into and out of the British International Schools sector. This research, delivered in partnership with ISC Research, builds on the high-profile COBIS Teacher Supply Research from 2018.

This research project will provide a better understanding of the profile of teachers entering and leaving the sector, and the factors that influence their entry into and departure from the sector. Results will also be benchmarked against the findings from the 2018 survey to highlight trends and changes. COBIS would like to hear from school leaders about their experience and perception of the challenges of teacher supply. COBIS would also like to hear from teachers who have started a new job in an international school since August 2018, as well as teachers who are thinking about leaving the international school sector by summer 2021. The results of this research will contribute to the wider COBIS initiative on teacher supply as we aim to support the sector to find new ways to attract, train and retain first-class teachers.

To participate, please complete the relevant survey below, as well as forwarding this invitation on to teachers in your school. A donation will be made to UNICEF for each completed survey. Initial findings will be shared at the 39th COBIS Annual Conference in London, UK – 9-11 May 2020 – Leading in a Climate of Change.
