INK-LogoNext month will see the first conferences to be staged under the banner of INK Education, a new company we have launched with author, trainer and former Headmaster Andrew Hammond.

INK Education grew out of a discussions surrounding a seven-book ‘Invisible Ink’ series authored by Andrew that will explore character education and the ‘invisible curriculum’ that can unlock children’s learning.

The idea behind INK is to host inspiring events with charismatic, energetic speakers – and to stage them at iconic venues. There are 12 conferences taking place in May and June in venues in London, Bristol, York and Birmingham, and we have also just announced our autumn term programme.

You can find out more about INK and the individual conferences by visiting www.ink-ed.com.

To find out more about the services that Andrew can offer schools, please visit his website. For information about the first book in the Invsible Ink series, Teaching for Character, click here.

ISJ 2015 April web-readyWe are pleased to announce the publication of the April 2015 issue of the International Schools Journal.

Copies of the journal will be sent out to subscribers in the next few days.

Regrettably, it is the last issue to be published with ECIS, who have been associated with the journal for 34 years.

However, John Catt continue to publish the journal in both print and digital formats. We understand how highly regarded the journal is in schools and are keen to make sure that this unique source of opinion and research remains available to all those with an interest in international education.

But these schools will no longer receive the journal for free and will be required to take out a subscription if they wish to keep receiving the journal. Schools will also no longer be sent PDF copies for free as part of their ECIS membership.

You can sign up for either a one or two-year subscription by visiting our bookshop.
