The primary focus of our Teacher Development curriculum is the art and craft of teaching itself. This is often overlooked but we believe, as in any other vocation, that it takes extensive practice and focus to perfect one’s skills as an educator.

Our development model draws strategically on the skills of practitioners from Lebone and RBI, alongside superb teachers in our other schools. These individuals are employed to transfer these skills in the areas in which they excel, thus creating a rich reservoir of promise for aspiring new teachers and experienced practitioners.

This core competency is vital for improving subject-specific skills and understanding and the creation of a broader culture of learning across our schools.

Quality assurance

As an ISO 9000 company, we strive for high standards and a professional approach to our work. All our programmes are either accredited or are in the process of being accredited. We believe that this is important because it shows the community that our interventions are of a high standard, and that the skills acquired can be transferred to other professional environments. Accreditation also affords us the opportunity to access state funding and to position RBI as a serious service provider in the skills provision market.
