Company of the year 2020 Awards
Yesterday, 13th July 2020, the annual “Company of the year” awards were presented for a sixth year in a row, organized by Bulgaria Business Review magazine, Business Lady and Business Lady Club magazines.St. George International School & Preschool was awarded with first place in the Education sector and an award for its Human resources development program. We are thankful to the organizers and the jury who appreciated our efforts in the path to improving the educational environment in Bulgaria and finding new possibilities for the students as well as for the involved in the educational field. During November 2019 the school passed an inspection from COBIS (Council of British International Schools) with excellent and exceptional assessments in terms of safety, learning conditions, wellbeing of the children, facilities, selection and qualification of the staff, management, spirit and values of the school. During this year St. George International School & Preschool was the first school in Bulgaria that successfully introduced online learning activities, providing the children and their families with stability and support. St. George International School & Preschool’s students achieve excellent results in exams according to the international educational standards. They are successful not only in National contests but also in international competitions such as World Scholar’s Cup, where they win gold medals in debates, creative writing and general academic training. In the educational field, more than any other sector, the human resources are a key factor. In order for the teacher to stand in front of the students it is not enough to have all the necessary skills, qualification and experience. The teacher needs to have conditions, which give him/her security, calmness and perspective for development. During the last years the organisation invests in young Bulgarians who have the potential to develop as teachers by financing their education in both Bulgarian and international universities for gaining the required pedagogical qualification. Along with this the teachers are trained for interaction with children according to the highest international standards. During the last few years there has been a lasting interest in the school from highly qualified international teachers with proven professional experience in elite schools around the world. Also, Bulgarian teachers who have been teaching abroad for years choose to come back to Bulgaria and join the team of St. George International School & Preschool, where to continue their professional development. That is possible thanks to the school’s program for attracting, selecting, supporting and stimulating the staff.
