WORLD CAFÉ AND THEATRE The World Café is open every morning from 8.15-9.45 am for AICS parents to meet over a coffee or hot chocolate. The Melting Pot (parents association) also have their monthly international coffee mornings here. CENTRE OF EXPERTISE The aim of the Centre of Expertise (CoE) is to provide and improve professional development for Esprit employees and to provide AICS in-company training for all employees and participants of other (international) schools in the Netherlands. The Centre of Expertise offers a wide range of workshops, courses, lectures and professional development afternoons where staff share good practice, develop new ideas and improve teaching skills. In 2014-2015 the CoE hosted workshops about learning support topics, English and Dutch Language acquisition, subject specific workshops like Maths, Languages, and Extended Essay. Two official IB workshops have taken place as well on the topic of global contexts for teaching and learning, and inquiry in the MYP. We make use of our in-house expertise or we invite experts from outside.
