At Pearson Schools, a teacher’s role extends far beyond the classroom. Each teacher is carefully selected after a rigorous selection process which includes tests and interviews. Our teachers are innovators and facilitators – they actively participate in initiating and organising unique classroom activities and learning methods. They are specially trained to do so through a series of training programmes.
In addition to an intensive pre-service session on innovation (which includes the In-Service Teaching Programme), these training programmes provide solutions to matters related to curricula, content and technology. They also develop individual teaching styles and help teachers assess themselves using feedback from students, colleagues and the management. Moreover, the In-Service Teaching Programme is certified by Pearson Assured Services, the U.K.’s largest awarding body.
The CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test)
The Ministry of Human Resource Development within the Government of India, has entrusted the responsibility of conducting the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) to the CBSE board. The board follows a strict policy to ensure that the CTET is the minimum qualification required to be appointed as a teacher. The reasons for this are:
The CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation)
The CCE refers to a system of evaluation that covers all aspects of student development. It has a two-fold agenda: to ensure continuity in general assessments and to monitor behavioural outcomes that result from those assessments. The evaluation covers academic and social outcomes, generic skills, discipline-specific knowledge and inter-personal skills. It not only monitors the students’ progress, it also determines the effectiveness of teaching material and methods.
Our teaching aids consist of well-thought-out lesson and activity plans to facilitate student interest and engagement. The uniformity of our teaching methodologies across schools also ensure a uniform learning outcome, while celebrating a student’s creativity and ingenuity.
An Optimised Workload
Workloads are carefully planned and divided to ensure that teachers are consistently committed to both their work and their students.
