We are delighted to announce that four of our leading international schools in the UK, Spain and Italy are finalists in The PIEoneer Awards 2020, recognising some innovative education programmes and projects that have taken place this year across our global network of Globeducate schools.
Facing tough competition from hundreds of entries, the finalist nomination was awarded to: Rome International School for Sustainability International Impact; Nobel International School Algarve for Progressive Education Programme Delivery; and both Agora Sant Cugat International School in Barcelona and Stonar School in Wiltshire, England, for the Secondary Learning International Impact award.
Launched in 2017, The PIEoneer Awards, organised by The PIE (UK-based Professionals in International Education), are the only global awards to celebrate innovation and achievement across the whole of the international education industry. Applications were submitted by individual schools to an expert panel of judges, providing evidence of impact. The judging panel comes from across the globe and evaluations are based on criteria such as a creative approach to teaching, an emphasis on helping students develop wider life skills, and the ability to deliver an experience that addresses the specific needs of international students.
Globeducate´s Education Director Oanh Crouch said: “It is a testament of our teacher´s commitment to providing the highest quality learning that four of our leading international schools in the group have been recognised in the shortlisting process. It is affirming that our achievements, before and during COVID19 challenges took effect, are being recognised on an esteemed global platform. These awards relate to our educational mission as a group – collaborative teaching and learning initiatives which impact on a global scale. We are greatly looking forward to the virtual awards ceremony in September.”
