BECOME AN IC SCHOOL
A Simple, Fast and Effective ‘Triple A’ Accreditation Process
The IC Accreditation is a quality assurance recognition to certify that your school is meeting the standards of high-quality international education as defined by IComprehensive and is committed to ongoing improvement through continuous reflection and Professional Learning. Schools receive their authorization within two years.
At Icomprehensive, we value both your time and your growth. Our accreditation process is designed to function in the best possible manner with efficient use of your time and resources. Our approach focuses on the process with a school portfolio in conjunction with regular feedback from our team and ongoing professional learning.
LEARNING IS A JOURNEY... FOR SCHOOLS TOO!
Once authorized to implement the IC EPYP, schools start the IC Continuous Learning Cycle.
This cycle is designed to run over two years to allow schools to learn, document, and reflect. Every new learning experience generates new questions and opens new possibilities. This is a virtuous cycle, not only to ensure quality education but also to keep improving our practices. IC builds relationships with educational institutions with the genuine intention to know them well and meet their unique needs.
We are not just evaluating you at the end, we are with you during the whole process and beyond.
The IC Continuous Learning Cycle
CONTINUOUS LEARNING CYCLE
1. ACTIVATION: Schools define personalized goals, plan actionable steps and schedule professional development.
2. IMPLEMENTATION: Schools undertake personalized professional development and document their learning journey. The IC team provides the school with ongoing support and feedback.
3. REFLECTION: The IC consultant studies the school's portfolio and self-reflection documents before connecting with the school and reporting back with suggestions regarding the final phase.
Schools implement the actions defined after the reflection phase, participate in targeted professional learning and document their learning journey. The IC team provides the school with ongoing feedback. At the end of this phase, a visit is organized on-site to determine wrap-up the first cycle.
