The Interteach mission

 

Mission

'Towards a glorious future, full of opportunities'

Interteach endeavours to bring the very best out of every child, ensuring the child is proud of who he or she is and what he or she is capable of.

Interteach offers the highest quality education, with small classes, the most experienced teachers, the most contact hours and the best results. Interteach stands for the very best quality in private education.

 

Vision

Within our vision, 'differentiated teaching', with personal learning routes, is a standard, in which we strive to achieve the right balance between qualification, socialisation and character building.

Children and young people not only learn from what they are told and shown, but also how that is done. This means that when it comes to the ‘how’ of the education we offer, we cannot merely focus on what is effective and efficient in achieving a certain result, but must also always ask ourselves whether the effective and efficient method is also desirable in view of our aims with regard to our educational activities and processes (Biesta, G. 2014)

Qualification
Interteach is focused on the acquisition of a flexible knowledge base, skills and attitudes that can qualify and prepare children to operate optimally in our complex, multicultural society. In this, Interteach focuses on offering bilingual primary education (BPE), in which subjects relating to global awareness are offered in the English language. In addition to the attention paid to languages, multilingualism and global awareness, Interteach also considers it important for children to become qualified in sport, art and culture.

Socialisation
Alongside qualification, Interteach also prioritises socialisation, which involves how children and young people learn to move and act responsibly within a diversity of multicultural traditions and practices. Citizenship education has an important role to play in this. The education Interteach offers is not isolated behind the school gates, but actively connects with the outside world, enabling children to become acquainted with the world around them. In this socialisation process, collaboration with external partners is essential.

Character building
in addition to qualification and socialisation, the education at Interteach places character building, in its widest sense, at centre stage: there is a focus on bildung, the process in which a child develops his or her identity through interaction with our educational offering and becomes an individual person. Interteach aims for every child to discover his or her own talents and to learn to think critically and reflect. The children are offered choices and given professional support in dealing with these choices.

At Interteach, everything is about ‘who you are and what you need’ to enjoy learning and to challenge yourself to develop even further.
