Being a Teacher

This description of the role and work of a teacher at CICD tells you also a lot about the school and what you can expect if you join one of the teams here. Here is a section from our new programme book:


You will find them active in their teaching and leadership tasks, performing these, together with the students, with their foundation firmly rooted in the programme, in the Teachers' Council as a collective force and as their part of the institution of the Common Meeting, which governs the school. Thus, you will find your teachers learning as well as teaching, listening as well as speaking, making investigations, digging deeper, taking action and speaking out, forging their singular part in the sum of collective processes of learning and actions that make up the journey through the different periods of the programme.

Below are a number of elements that exemplify how we see and understand the work, role and function of the teacher.
