  • Proficiency in English - interaction within the board will be in English.
  • Motivation to be part of and contribute to a vibrant educational community.
  • Time commitment - an average of 2 hours weekly and participation in an annual 2 days study trip.

What will you gain?

  • Access to valuable educational resources, including online activities.
  • Quality pedagogical discussions within an international community of practice.
