Amazing Learning



Josh Widdows

Group International Opportunities Project Manager

Josh has lived in Barcelona in Spain for a decade which is where he now calls home. Growing up in the Suffolk countryside, in the UK, he’s always inherently been an active person so his zest for outdoor life has meant he’s travelled around 48 countries worldwide and lived not only in Spain, but Guatemala, Australia and New Zealand.

Having a 15-year career in education and holding a BA in Art & Visual Culture, creativity and innovation are central to his work. From youth worker to summer school director, Josh has designed courses and delivered programmes for international students in Spain and the UK – all of which has led to him joining the International Schools Partnership (ISP) in April 2020 as one of our two new International Opportunities Project Manager.

Josh leads on the ISP Buddy Exchange Programme (BEP), the ISP Virtual BEP, the ISP International Summer Camp and the ISP Short Film Festival. Having been an English language teacher and teacher trainer in Spanish-speaking countries for many years, he is an advocate for developing language and communication skills ensuring that educators and students alike continuously make the most out of their learning journey.

One of his most amazing learning experiences was working on a permaculture plantation in Nicaragua. One a more regular day in Barcelona considering Josh is an avid cyclist, hiker, swimmer and map drawer, you’ll find him either navigating around the Catalan countryside on a saddle or sat on his terrace interpreting his experience.
