NEASC Visitor Training Part 1 - March 16, 2023 (CEESA pre-conference)

Training for Visiting Teams | International Education

"From compliance to improvement to transformation" - NEASC Visitors are excited about the future of education and interested in helping other schools gain traction for their improvements and transformations. Visitors are flexible thinkers, caring collaborators, fluent communicators, and generous with their time and talents.

This full day training, being held as an in-person Pre-Conference workshop for the 2023 CEESA Conference, will include many activities to get participants thinking deeply about what makes learning effective in schools. NEASC offers additional top up training and other supportive training at no cost once the participant has been approved for visits.
