TIC sponsored the award for Best New International School

The first ever British International School Awards ceremony took place in London on January 23rd. The event was organised by British International Schools Magazine, and TIC Recruitment was one of the main sponsors. The awards recognised excellence in British schools overseas and celebrated many successes of exceptional learning, school support and leadership.

Representatives from many international schools, from all corners of the world, attended the gala event. Several of the schools that TIC supports for teacher and leadership recruitment were winners.
