Islanders Institute of Applied Sciences (IIAS) is a higher educational institution under Islanders Education with a mandate to bring high quality courses aimed at creating a strong workforce in the country. 

IIAS’s initial goal is to offer internationally accredited courses to train teachers for the education sector. The Institute has partnered with British Council to offer it’s international suite of English assessment and competency courses. 

IIAS is in the process of creating its own comprehensive teacher training programme that includes pre-service, in-service and part-time courses targeted at improving the quality of teaching and learning while educators are working in schools. 

In 2019, IIAS signed an understanding to forge a partnership with Jyvaskyla University of Applied Sciences (JAMK) from Finland and introduce JAMK’s Degree courses in the fields of education, hospitality and entrepreneurship here in the Maldives.
