CLIL Experience

The BIS CLIL Experience programme offers students the opportunity to take classes on school subjects such as art, history, science, literature and theatre, in an actual museum or art gallery. This allows them to have access to the very artefacts and objects they are studying, which results in a much more interactive and stimulating way of learning.

Students will be able to gain both experience and knowledge of their chosen subject through the insightful guidance of qualified native English teachers.

Work Experience

In our dynamic and competitive society, taking part in a work experience programme abroad offers the possibility to combine skills developed at school with those required in a working environment.

The BIS work experience programme is aimed at students between the ages of 16 and 19. The programme can last from 1 to 4 weeks and students can choose between a full-time or part-time work experience, or a combination of work and general or business English course.

All our programmes are aimed at acquiring key competences in the working environment, such as the acquisition of technical terminology, specific language and sectorial operating methods. Students also have the opportunity to learn communication skills as well as other soft skills like working in a team, time management, work planning, building self-confidence and autonomy enhancement, and motivation to success.

Work experience activities may be carried out in our offices or in external environments.
