MUMBAI, APRIL 17, 2023
Jio Institute has partnered with the US-based Principals’ Training Center (PTC) to share its uniquely designed training programmes for educators and school leaders in India.
PTC caters to the unique professional learning needs of practicing and aspiring principals, teachers, heads of departments, counsellors, and board members of schools worldwide. It provides world-class, research-driven, practical training, designed to be put into practice in K-12 schools.
“Collaboration between Jio Institute and Principals’ Training Center is a powerful alliance to bring innovative educational practices and training to our schools that can pave the way for a brighter future of our students,” said Dr G Ravichandran, Provost, Jio Institute.
“Our partnership with PTC underscores our commitment to providing world-class education that is responsive to the changing needs of the world,” he added.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Jio Institute and offer the first program ‘Creating an Effective School’ in India,” said Bambi Betts, Executive Director at Principals’ Training Center. “Significant research confirms that school leaders CAN have a meaningful impact on student learning. The exciting work ahead is to ensure every single school leader acquires the skills to make that impact,” Betts added.
The first PTC course being launched in India — Creating an Effective School — offers the knowledge and skills for school leaders to articulate a vision to design and implement a plan for an effective school focused on student learning and improving outcomes.
It addresses the ‘big picture’ of what schools are and how leaders can optimise conditions to maximise learning by focusing on results. All PTC courses utilise simulations, case studies and other practical training strategies.
The course content has been tailored to meet the requirements of the Indian context.
The course is open to educators and leaders from across all educational boards and schools — international schools, CBSE schools, ICSE schools, and schools affiliated to state education boards.
The seven-day residential programme will be offered from May 22 to 28 at the Jio Institute’s campus in Ulwe (Navi Mumbai). Scholarships will be provided to select candidates based on merit.
