Lifelong learning

Lifelong learning

We believe that learning goes beyond the time we spend at school.

At ISP schools, we equip our students with the knowledge, tools, and mindset to develop skills for life.

International opportunities

We offer our students opportunities to participate in our International Learning Opportunities for Students (ILOS) programmes. ISP students around the world have the chance to connect with each other through our specially designed beyond-the-classroom experiences.

ILOS programmes are a chance for students to pursue their passions and develop their skills while learning how to be confident, global citizens. From leading a film crew, to taking the first steps into unknown cultures, each of our ILOS programmes is designed to shape our students’ life skills. We focus on developing cognitive awareness, interpersonal skills, digital fluency, self-leadership, and global competence: all crucial life skills.

ILOS students who took part told us that they:

Increased their capacity to work in teams and solve conflicts collaboratively

Saw improvement in expressing their ideas creatively and effectively

Have a greater understanding of others’ world views

Felt they have gotten better at identifying their own areas of growth

Felt more aware of the impact they can have in their own community, the planet, and cultures

Our students highly value these programmes:
