We were delighted to award our prestigious IPC Accreditation to the Norwegian International School in Hong Kong in June 2020. It is the first remote Accreditation Fieldwork Education have done, and it was a huge success; both the team and the school felt it was very rigorous. Although it was a very different format for the Accreditation visit, we have all adapted to connecting through screens during COVID 19.
During the remote Accreditation, the whole school community got involved, whether they were in their office, at home or in school. It was amazing to see the mixture of blended learning taking place in the school, especially after they had been a ‘virtual’ school for 4 months, and the children and teachers had only been back in school for three weeks! However, the IPC learning taking place was engaging the children whether through e-learning or in the classroom.
We have another three remote Accreditations happening this term and several remote Check-ins. This is exciting as it means although schools might be functioning slightly differently, they are still looking to improving learning!
