Much of OIC’s recent success can be attributed to its Chief Education Officer, Yasmin Sarwar. Yasmin was the original founder of another highest-performing A-level college in the UK for nine consecutive years, until it was dethroned by OIC two years after her joining. Under her academic leadership, OIC has become the school that it is now.
At OIC, Yasmin has developed the “Strategic Global Pathways” curriculum, which combines Academic Excellence, Career Preparation and Personal Development to give students with the best chances to succeed at university interview, higher education and later in their professional lives.
Well-known as an innovator in education, Yasmin has achieved many awards, including the Pearson Teaching Award for Science Teacher of the Year and a Pearson Teaching Awards Fellowship (2011). Yasmin is regularly invited to share her expertise with government officials, fellow educators, parents, students, and the general public, including the Welsh Assembly (Gorwel) and TEDx (DVLA- Swansea).
