The International Studies Foundation is an official permanent training center for teachers, and has been ever since signing a collaborative agreement with the Madrid Autonomous Community in early 2008. Each year, we provide the “Dirección General de Mejora de la Calidad de la Enseñanza de la Consejería de Educación de la Comunidad de Madrid” (essentially a government agency tasked with quality control and optimization for public school teachers, as well as curriculums in and around Madrid) with a detailed syllabus that specifically highlights what we wish to achieve with our students.
We are exceptionally fortunate to be able to contribute to our local community by working with some of the people who are most responsible for guiding young people in some of their most developmental years.
The International Studies Foundation is an Official Training Center for the Teachers from the Madrid Autonomous Community
Since 2008, we have taken the following actions in terms of training teachers in and around Madrid:
- 5 annual scholarships for high school students in and around Madrid to study for a Master of Education in International Education from Endicott College. All in-class portions of the program are done in Madrid at CIS – The College for International Studies.
- Training courses centered around Methodologies and Improvement of the English language for high school teachers.
- Training courses centered around Methodologies and Improvement of the English language: “Advanced English: Teaching English Through Literature”.
- A scholarship for a student from Mozambique to study in Madrid at CIS – The College for International Studies for a Master of Education in International Education from Endicott College. The scholarship itself is awarded by the NGO Cruzada por los Niños (Crusade for the Children), which belongs to the same educational group as this foundation, as well as CIS – The College for International Studies.
