IAAR INTERNATIONAL LICENSE INSPECTION FEEDBACK
TAMOS education is pleased to inform the TAMOS family that between the 21st and the 23rd of April the school was given an inspection by the Independent Agency for Accreditation and Rating (IAAR) to check our level and status as an international school. Due to the COVID restrictions it was the first ever international inspection to be conducted online. Despite the difficulties of a distance inspection, we had three days where the inspectors held interviews with the various stakeholders of our school from our governor Mr. Paul to Mr. Murat shareholders representative, the Directors of the Russian, Kazakh and primary schools Ms. Lydia, Ms. Zhanar and MR. Rinat to teachers to students and to parents.
The inspectors took close scrutiny of our school policies, child protection systems, health and safety policies, curriculums, lesson plans, training, teaching, professional development, finance and management systems. Many questions were asked and answered. Classrooms were visited by zoom and online lessons were joined by the inspectors from Kazakhstan and England.
At the end of the process the final feedback was very positive. Some of the comments that were made concerned our students. The inspectors told us that they were great ambassadors for the school. Our teaches were complimented as some of the most positive and enthusiastic teachers they had encountered. They thought we were well resourced; the location of the school was good and our development and tracking system excellent.
The inspection team will write their full and thorough report on the school and in May will make the recommendation to the Kazakh government as to whether we should be rewarded the coveted “full international status” from the Kazakh education department.
Mr. Paul, our school governor said “the inspectors were very positive about their experience in our school and I can’t say for certain, as we have to wait for their report in May, but I am quietly confident that we will achieve our goal of international status. I would like to thank all the people involved in this team effort as everyone worked very hard to make this inspection such a positive experience.”
The results and feedback of the inspection will be published on our website and in our social media accounts as soon as we receive it. What this space…
