Strategically planned professional learning in schools can and should enhance the quality of learning and teaching as part of a vision for continuous whole school improvement. In collaboration with ECIS, The Hisar International School Istanbul has written a Professional Learning Standards Policy and has kindly given permission to share this as an example, to which schools are welcome to refer, as a model for their own policy writing. The Hisar International School Istanbul would like to be in contact with other schools who are interested in further developing their professional learning policies.
