SUPPORT AND ACCLIMATISATION

SUPPORT AND ACCLIMATISATION

Quantum Scholars can offer international teachers a comprehensive support and acclimatisation package to assist them from the moment they secure a positon. This includes an acclimatisation event upon arrival to England and online access to a suite of relevant CPD and training materials throughout their first year’s teaching in England.

Acclimatisation event – Cygnus Teaching Alliance School

Quantum Scholars is proud to partner with Cygnus Teaching School Alliance which delivers the acclimatisation events for our international teachers upon arrival in England. Cygnus deliver high quality professional development and training for teachers.                                                                                               
Cygnus is led by and based at Wycombe High School an outstanding grammar school in Buckinghamshire in the south east of England.

Acclimatisation events are held in September and January to accommodate teachers starting at different times in the year.  They are designed to ensure that teachers settle quickly into their new school environments and give them a sound foundation on which to embark on their English teaching experience. The September event is a two-day, three night residential with accommodation, breakfast and lunch provided.  There is also a social evening at the end of the event to celebrate arriving in England and the opportunity to meet new friends over a drink or two! Acclimatisation events are held in September and January to accommodate teachers starting at different times in the year.  They are designed to ensure that teachers settle quickly into their new school environments and give them a sound foundation on which to embark on their English teaching experience.
