Yes please! What happened?
So you feel NA is not very god in the Far East and in China? May I ask why that is?
You just count the number of students who have left the schools in Shanghai in the last couple of years.
It's unfair to judge the whole of the Nord Anglia Education group, which consists of 60+ international schools in 25+ countries , based declining student numbers in one city...
Robert I have sent you a private message.
When you have worked "Overseas" as long as I have, you know exactly what NA are all about in the education business. Profit, Profit, Profit and Money in that order.
I've sent you a conversation @robertakeys
Not only students...
Not only students, and not only Shanghai....
It is not so cut and dried. I have friends in Myanmar and Bkk that work for NA schools. The one in Bangkok has a very well respected and strong head master. He really prioritizes the well-being of the teachers and is passionate about building a community. This I have witnessed.
In Myanmar, so far, my friend is getting support and opportunities for professional development. It is a big company, but it’s really down to who runs the individual schools. And yes, other of their schools have had big problems. So many weak leaders out there.
Very happy to discuss in a Conversation.
Yeah what happened? How can i get a personal response. I work at one.
Can you inform me privately? I work at one. And its going....bad
I work in one. Can yu send me your experience and perspective?
NA do not have a good name.
NA NYC info please?? Many thanks
My advice would be don't do it. I left a very well ran International school originating from an area located on a hill in London to a NA bilingual school and it has been an absolute nightmare. 3 months in and we are on our 4th and 5th National and International principals.
I heard the US ones were actually OK, albeit poorly paid compared to the cost of living. The New York one will be even worse than the others in this respect. It's near Tribeca if I remember rightly
If that picture is of you and your username is anything like your real name I strongly recommend that you change both. Every international school in the world reads this forum.
It means they have received your application. No more than that.
