Training and development
Teachers training and development implies a program in which specific knowledge, skills and abilities are imparted to the teachers, with the aim of raising their performance level, in their existing roles, as well as providing them learning opportunities, to further their growth.
Training implies a process of upgrading teacher’s knowledge, skills and competencies. Our teachers training takes place in both formal and informal settings. Formal settings include conferences, courses, seminars, retreats and workshops.
When a teacher joins the organization, he/she is given job-related training to ensure satisfactory performance of the tasks and duties assigned, so that the teachers can contribute more to develop skills and knowledge in students. At India Overseas School Training for staff aims at teaching theoretical concepts along with providing a hands-on experience to the teachers. It also improves their judgement and reasoning power. Also helps the teachers to stay up-to-date with the technological changes.
While conducting developmental trainings for teachers, more stress is given on increasing knowledge and innovating new teaching skills such as use of digital tools for classroom management, use of innovative tools for teaching such as storytelling, theatre, mind mapping, problem-solving, decision making, industrial analysis, etc.
Certain benefits of training and development activities observed by the management at India Overseas School are:
It affects student learning
It is obvious that good teachers are better at teaching students effectively. When teachers have access to continuous learning opportunities and professional development resources, they’re better equipped to become good teachers — especially if their students have learning needs or are performing below or above grade level. Student achievement is the ultimate goal of teachers at India Overseas School.
It encourages the success of new teachers
While there are a number of explanations for this statistic, there is no substitute for hands-on experience when it comes to effective classroom teaching. Teachers spend their whole careers developing new skills in response to the challenges they encounter, but new teachers haven’t had a chance to build their own resources.These trainings helps the new and experienced teachers develop the skills they need to feel confident in the classroom.
It promotes a growth mindset
Teacher professional development encourages teachers to be active participants in their own learning, and ensures that students and teachers alike are eager to learn. When we provide learning and support to our teachers, we communicate that the school community values the work they do and wants them to grow.
