Announcing ISS-Schrole Advantage


Collaboration is expected to create the largest ecosystem of international schools and educators.

 

Princeton, NJ, USA (April 4, 2018)logo-(1).jpg International Schools Services (ISS) announces it is launching ISS-Schrole Advantage for the 2018-2019 recruitment season, in conjunction with Schrole Group Ltd. This collaboration is expected to significantly enhance the international school recruitment experience for both candidates and schools by combining advanced technology and personal service and creating the largest ecosystem of international schools and educators worldwide.  

“The desire to collaborate is in many ways in ISS’s DNA,” says ISS President Liz Duffy. “Since our inception in 1955, we have worked with partners of all types – educators, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and government entities – to strengthen international education. With the adoption of ISS’s strategic plan, we have re-energized that early inclination to create meaningful partnerships. In the last 18 months, most of ISS’s core services have established new strategic partnerships to better serve the international school community. This new alliance with Schrole will do just that by making it easier for both candidates and schools to connect and make meaningful matches.”

ISS-Schrole Advantage is designed to bring more schools and more candidates together to find the best fits through a comprehensive set of tools and services, including dashboards and search functionalities, engaging apps, job fairs, webinars, and virtual events. ISS-Schrole Advantage will also feature simple pricing for schools and candidates, so users will know upfront exactly what they will pay for the entire recruitment season.

“We are pleased to create this alliance with Schrole because together, we can create a dynamic ecosystem that combines powerful technology and essential personal service, bringing more schools and more educators together,” says Duffy. “As ISC Research forecasts that by 2026 the demand for international teachers will rise by nearly 200%, it is now more critical than ever to ISS’s mission that we collaborate and innovate to help international education grow and thrive.”

Foundational programming for ISS-Schrole Advantage is well-underway to be ready for the 2018-19 recruitment season. In the next phase of this agile design process, ISS and Schrole developers will engage with more than 1000 candidates and educational leaders to help shape some of the new features and functionality and to maximize the user experience.
