All of our teachers are carefully selected from highly qualified candidates, many of whom have come to us from the international school circuit where they have lived and worked in a variety of foreign cultures. Some have stayed with us since the beginning, giving us an overall stability, whereas our new teachers share their recent studies and experiences.
We are looking to appoint teachers who are committed to high standards, interested in using a constructivist approach to learning, and are enthusiastic about promoting international understanding.
Teachers are chosen on the strength of their academic and professional qualifications. All teaching staff are fully qualified and trained in the International Baccalaureate® Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP).
The Head of Primary and Head of Secondary provide a constant monitoring on the educational programme, help with the implementation of the IB Prpgrammes and offer a day-to-day support for all teachers at the International School of Bergamo. In the Primary school, specialist teachers are brought in for Italian, Music, Art and Italian as a second language. EAL specialists assist class teachers with the integration of non-English speakers into the curriculum, as well as providing intensive language tuition. In the Secondary school, subject specialists are expected to have an appropriare degree as well as QTS. Non-qualified teachers can apply for the role of teaching assistants in th EY department.
