Dragonfly International was established in 2008, as demand for our in-school and venue-based training spread abroad. It became clear that our practical and interactive training was just what international schools were looking for to engage, up-skill and inspire their staff.

Now operating in more than 50 countries, we offer a full range of services from monthly venue-based courses in South East Asia, conference workshops for COBIS, the BSME, ISHRAQ, NABSS and IAPS and regular visits to international schools or groups of schools throughout Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, South America and China.

Whether you are looking for one day of training at your school, a package of courses for your staff, on-going consultancy support, workshops at your conference, the opportunity to host some of our courses or a bespoke PD programme for all the schools in your group or region, then we would be happy to help.

I also learned how to create enthusiasm and energise my students with challenges. Being able to forecast the outcome of my lesson and apply resources for ultimate achievement."
