Zein Academy - Staff Training

From experience we know that new staff find the programme interesting and stimulating and that they grow in their pedagogical knowledge and approach as a result.  

All new members of Zein undergo a detailed induction and training programme so that they learn to understand the difference between our approach and that of other organisations where they may have worked in the past.  We believe in the concept of lifelong learning, and invest time and energy into ensuring that all our staff feel happy and confident about their role in helping us continue 'Setting the Standard' in international childcare.

The Zein Academy Staff Training Programme is made up of a combination of lectures, interactive workshops and on the job application of knowledge. This in-depth programme looks at the specific needs of Third Culture Kids (TCKs) as well as the practical application of the Zein approach in the workplace.  The training programme covers the following areas:

  • Zein Vision & Philosophy
  • GGD Health & Safety/ Active Supervision
  • About our Company
  • Zein Communication Protocol
  • What if Scenarios
  • Effective Communication with Parents
  • Third Culture Kids (TCK)
