connecting teachers

The IVS Alliance connect teachers from different schools that offer bilingual education. Through meetings and online platforms we stay in contact to enhance personal and professional contact.

sharing knowledge

The IVS Alliance shares knowledge to further develop quality education. Teachers, students and entrepreneurs share ideas, best practices, learning materials and inspiration.

New developments

Together we develop new programs and materials for students and teachers. Each school uses these programs and materials for their own benefit in a way that fits their college.

Being a member of the IVS Alliance gives me inspiration and support in my career as a teacher. We help each other to move forward into the future.

Crossing borders is in the IVS Alliance genes. From day one the members try to be one step ahead. Offering classes in English, a double diploma program and internships abroad. All initiated by IVS Alliance members. What will be our next crossing?

The path we want to take with our journey

The mission of the IVS Alliance is to grant support requests from teachers within the BTEC program to enable them to matter to students and entrepreneurs. The IVS Alliance trains, engages and inspires members.

How we see our role

The IVS Alliance wants to collectively support bilingual vocational colleges to improve the opportunities for their students.

Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC)

All members of the IVS Alliance, works with different courses of BTEC (e.g. Business, Engineering, Fashion, Hospitality etc) at their schools. 

BTEC courses focus on skills-based learning and are designed around themed units. Rather than testing everything together at the end, BTECs are tested throughout the course using assessments based on real-life scenarios. This practical approach allows BTEC learners to develop and apply the knowledge and skills that employers, colleges and universities are looking for. And that means there are plenty of opportunities to learn, improve and succeed. 

The BTEC Extended Diploma level 3 is a Further Education qualification and vocational qualification. This qualification is organised and awarded by Pearson within the BTEC brand and it is equivalent to A-Levels and to the GCE A Levels. 
This qualification is taken in order to gain entry to the Higher education and/or to universities. 

Pearson is a British-owned education publishing and assessment service to schools and corporations, as well for students and directly. Pearson operates in more than 70 countries. Pearson is now the world’s learning company, with 35.000 employees across 70 countires worldwide. Pearson’s logo is the unconventional symbol known as the interrobang, a combination of a question mark and an exclamation point, meant to convey ”the excitement and fun of learning”.
