Championing for New Professionals in International Education
Building upon our previous work, in 2015 INTL worked to prompt and increase the awareness of leading ideas and concerns of new professionals amongst the wider international education community. Facilitating dialogue between emerging and senior leaders in the field, and between colleagues across the country, INTL fosters the building of relationships across the sector to build an even strong professional learning community.
