Leadership and governance

MIS is part of VIE Education, a newly formed school group that is in the process of opening MIS (2021) and our second international school in Neuchâtel (2022).

VIE Education is the brainchild of former International Baccalaureate (IB) Global Heads, Jon Halligan (Head of IB Development & Recognition) and Damian Bacchoo (Head of DP/CP Programme Development). Together they have over 50 years’ international education experience and 30 years of IB leadership experience in schools. Jon brings a wealth of experience in programme implementation, government relations, accreditation and recognition, school leadership and business development. Damian has a rich background in curriculum design, educational innovation and career education.

Together they have committed to a future where students learn what’s worth learning, which they call “lifeworthy learning”.
