BISC Safer Recruitment Policy

BISC is committed to safeguarding children and young people through safer recruitment practices. The School's recruitment protocols adhere to the standards set by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, within the British Schools Overseas framework. Candidate references will be checked and qualifications attested. Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or local police checks are required, together with a Statement of Medical Fitness. 

Developing Our People

Learning is at the core of what we do. Our teachers' knowledge, experience and expertise are recognised, shared and developed.

We believe that Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is an entitlement for, and the responsibility of, all staff. We believe that CPD is a continuous and pervasive process. Our staff value this sharing of learning.

A comprehensive, structured and thorough induction programme introduces new staff to our community, and ways of working at BISC. This will involve the allocation of mentors to offer support and guidance, and supportive meeting with managers throughout the initial period. Our Staff Welfare Coordinator ensures new staff are also appropriately introduced to Cairo.

A comprehensive Professional Review and Development Policy is well established and fully embedded at BISC. This process is driven by staff and used to identify strengths and areas they wish to develop further. This cycle of reflective review, action and evaluation drives the vision and the strategic plan for CPD. All staff are, therefore, entitled to an annual Professional Review and Development Interview, where CPD requirements are identified, agreed and fully supported. The process ensures a positive growth of professional practice; the impact is classroom based and ultimately on the learning experiences of our students.
