Onboarding and Continuing Education Made Easy

TCK Training has created Virtual Training Courses for International School Staff with content specific to the unique context and challenges of international schools. 

Each course consists of four units, with a total of 12 training hours. Each unit comprises a combination of short videos, reflective activities, infographics and other handouts, plus unit quiz and supplementary resources for further learning and applying content in various contexts.

Our training is backed with research specific to the international school world.
