About Us - Soft Skills Training for International Schools

Research with over 200 international school leaders has shown strong demand for soft skills training at all levels. Change management, leading with agility and empathy, speaking with impact, motivating teams, communicating succinctly.

At Partnership Media Group we have been helping tens of thousands of UK civil service and private sector staff to solve these challenges. Outstanding Schools is now making these solutions available international school leaders and administrators for the first time.

We offer a series of truly unique soft skills training courses, all designed for international school staff. All courses are CPD accredited.

The Education Board includes Sir Andrew Carter, Stephen Morales, Debbie Clinton, Rt. Hon. David Laws, Rowena Hackwood and Steve Rollett.

The Outstanding Schools division launched during the pandemic in 2020. The aim was to leverage its deep education network and powerful technology to deliver innovative and engaging virtual conferences, to support international school leaders when collaboration and solutions were needed most.
