At Britannica International School, Shanghai, we recognise that each member of staff has an important part to play in ensuring the school is a safe, warm and welcoming environment for our students.

In response to this, today marked the start of our brand new in-house English Language programme for support staff.

Many members of our school community have enrolled in this course including; our team of cleaning staff, security officers and site maintenance team.

The course, designed and delivered by some of Britannica’s fully qualified teachers, aims to enable all support staff in school to acquire the knowledge and confidence to allow them to communicate with our students throughout the day.

This course will continue throughout the year and I look forward to watching it grow and allow all members of community to continue with their own personalised learning.
