If you still have some questions about what the International Learning Centre (ILC) is and why it was created please read on. The idea of creating the ILC was sparked exactly a year ago now when there were many discussions around the school about how BISP could support Phuket into becoming ‘a more successful community’. BISP identified the opportunity to extend our provision to include becoming a provider of life-long learning, thereby potentially enriching the lives of citizens in the wider domestic and international communities, as well as for our BISP students, teachers and parents.

Broadly, the ILC aims to provide more learning and training opportunities for the BISP school community, Phuket and international communities, classroom practitioners and business. Based at the BISP north boarding quad, the ILC comprises a languages centre and a training centre. The ILC major areas of expertise are learning languages, preparation for language examinations, testing, professional development and learning about learning.

ILC objectives are:

    1. To provide high quality language instruction;
    2. To provide professional development training;
    3. To implement life-long learning and to learn about learning.

At the moment we are implementing a language learning programme where English, Mandarin and Thai language courses have been taught to BISP parents and students. We have also been working closely with the local Thai education area offi ce by providing professional teacher training to them. Please feel free to turn to us with suggestions depending on your learning and training needs and we will try our best to accommodate them.
