Avenor College is a bilingual international school with double accreditation, both in the Romanian system and in the British system. We have been accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education through ARACIP 12 years ago, and in the 2018-2019 academic year we received the confirmation that we also meet the British School Overseas (BSO) standards, representing the Department of Education (DfE) in the UK.

In March 2023, after the British School Overseas (BSO) inspection, we were awarded the qualification ”OUTSTANDING in each standard and overall”, which certifies that Avenor pupils receive an education that is of the same standard as any leading independent school in the UK and the world. 

We are happy to have continued the accreditation obtained back in 2018 when Avenor College received the rating “GOOD with OUTSTANDING features“.

This result is proof that EXCELLENCE is truly one of Avenor’s core values and a confirmation that our students receive the best guidance in their individual learning journeys.

Following the inspection in March 2023, Avenor College received the BSO accreditation and the overall judgment for our school was „OUTSTANDING in each standard and overall”. British School Overseas represents the Gold standards in education and this accreditation certifies that our students  are receiving an education that is at least as good as the education found in leading British independent schools in the UK or internationally.  The students of Avenor demonstrate remarkable performance and their exemplary attitude makes them excellent ambassadors of the school. Relationships between all staff members, students and parents are excellent and the strong ethos is evident through all the work the school does. In nearly all lessons, teachers are highly effective. They develop, consolidate and deepen students’ knowledge.  High quality specialist staff enhance the teaching and learning for the students. Moreover, Avenor is a place where innovative project work is developed and implemented by staff to provide a broad range of learning opportunities BSO Inspection Report can be accessed here: BSO Inspection Report Avenor College 2023.

The quality assessment of the career counselling and guidance program carried out by Career Mark is very complex. We are talking about an evaluation that measures the effectiveness of the system as a whole, from the integration of the program into the curriculum to the assessment of students’ skills and attitudes in relation to the career planning process.
