KICS is committed to providing professional development funding for all teachers. We offer a generous annual Professional Development allowance to all our faculty to support their continued teacher education with the expectation that professional development will directly and positively impact student learning in the classroom. The annual allowance of 1,750 USD can be used within the first year of contract or carried over into the second year of contract where terms and conditions may apply. Over the years teachers at KICS have applied their PD allowance to a wide range of events; IB conferences, graduate programmes and course work, attendance at regional conferences such as AISA or NESA, and many other worthwhile endeavors all in support of continued education and student learning. The KICS Professional Development plan is a robust, and well funded programme supporting a wide range of opportunities for choice, allowing teachers to grow professionally and gain experiences in appropriate and up-to-date learning practices.
