International Schools have developed since their inception from a largely native English-speaking student body to schools such as the author’s, the Vienna International School (VIS), where there are students of 90 nationalities with 65 mother tongues. Maurice Carder proposes a “three-programme model” for addressing the language and curricula needs of these students: a content-based second language programme; a programme of cultural and linguistic training for all staff; and a mother tongue programme for minority students. The model is based on research findings and practice: at the VIS every year approximately 1/3 of the graduating students gain an IB Diploma (International Baccalaureate) because they are able to take their mother tongue (other than English or German) as Language A1. The book contains insightful chapters not only for school leaders, programme designers and teachers, but also for parents. Inserted boxes of student responses give an authentic voice to the needs of second language learners, and many useful resources and websites are given.

Available in paperback from mid-December 2018. By 2020 it is estimated that there will be more than ten thousand international schools educating five million students. Native speakers of English, the language of instruction in 90 per cent of these schools, will be in the minority.The learning needs of second language learners in national education systems differ fundamentally from those in the international community. This book argues that second language learners in international schools are better provided for within models of instruction that do not assimilate to any political system; where motivation can come from areas other than wanting to belong to a specific culture; and where students can develop all their languages equitably.The authors trace the theories underpinning second language learning programmes in international schools and delve into the complexities of teacher relationships and the influence of curriculum agencies on second language learning. Through case studies and vignettes, they argue for establishing a department of Professional English as a Second Language at the centre of the academic life in each school, whose staff will build on the widely acknowledged potential of second language learners and enhance their capabilities in all their languages.

It is estimated that there are some 12 000 international schools world-wide, with over 25 000 middle managers and head teachers. Within this there are several different types of international school including British schools abroad, English-speaking schools overseas, European English-speaking schools and forces schools - in spite of some differences they and their managers share certain needs for administrative efficiency. This practice-based management book for international schools provides support and development for middle and senior managers and teachers. The book concentrates on school improvement and effectiveness by drawing on best practice from international schools around the world using school-based research. It is written by a team from the Oxford Brookes Centre for Educational Management (OXCEM), the UK's most active International Schools' consultancy service. Issues discussed include teaching, learning and the curriculum, primary and secondary curriculum development, recording and reporting assessment, English as a second language, school management and staff development.
