Jon Halligan, Executive Principal at MIS, joined Design Cast (A podcast for Design, STEM & STEAM teachers.) to discuss the Career-related Programme through VIE Education.
On this episode of Design Cast I had the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Jon Halligan. He has held multiple roles from teacher to school leadership. Jon worked in multiple education institutions from primary to tertiary, state and private, from the UK to the UAE. For the last 5 years, Jon worked as the Head of Development & Recognition for the IBO in The Hague. Jon has several startup projects that he is currently working on and we talk about those in this episode. A lot of what we talked about dealt with the IB Career-related Programme or CP. We have a lively discussion around the components of the CP and how schools can get started implementing the programme. Jon also talks about his new start-up projects and they are VIE education which is the company that is setting up two different international schools in Switzerland which are going to be CP only schools! I am currently the CP coordinator at my school and I see tremendous opportunities with ‘Personal Design Pathways’ for schools all over the world. This conversation with Jon only confirmed my philosophy further! I hope that you can see the possibilities for the design programs in your schools!!! I would like to ask everyone who enjoys this podcast to review it wherever you listen to it!
