At BEN we take great pride in supporting our public school educators throughout their journey by organizing teacher professional development opportunities, curriculum enhancement programmes, teacher wellness initiatives, our annual teacher awards and fun, curated events.
Through our teacher professional development opportunities we offer programmes that give PD hours while deepening connections throughout the teaching community. BEN wants to give our support in a holistic manner, and as such has created teacher wellness initiatives including the first ever Teacher Wellness Retreat in August 2019 led by our 2019 Teacher of the Year Alandra Swan. We also regularly bring local educators together for fun, curated events.
Horizons is our sought-after curriculum enhancement programme where students and their teachers attend field trips to our partner organizations throughout the year. These educational expeditions are led by our experiential learning director Zonique James and all transport and coordination are covered by BEN.

Our annual teacher awards celebrate the very best in public school educators at our annual Chinese New Year gala where we award the overall Teacher of the Year and highlight the top ten finalists. See more HERE.
