​​Centre for Inspiring Minds (CIM)

In the constant pursuit of excellence in education, CIM was established in September 2012. Its aims are to cultivate a research-engaged school by:

  • Championing collaborative inquiry as an effective form of professional development aimed at improving teaching and learning
  • Driving the rigorous use and practice of school-based academic and co-curricular research as the foundation for a research-engaged school
  • Harnessing and supporting creativity across our schools
  • Strengthening partnerships among campuses and divisions
  • Forging relationships with external organisations to further international education.

Working in close collaboration with the Heads of School, the MD and the wider ACS leadership team, CIM strives to make a difference by supporting the professional development and lifelong learning of ACS staff.
