The Educators Academic Department works very closely with teachers for a common objective: to improve the quality of teaching and facilitate learning in every way. Our high quality, standardised curriculum has produced some of the best Matriculation results in the country.
The department is dedicated to providing complete support to its network of teachers, and as a recent initiative the academic support has now been further extended to include schools as well.
The Academic Department has a robust Professional Development Programme for teacher training and another new support function initiative is to provide CRP (Curriculum Resource Packs) unit-based Daily Lesson Plans (DLPs) to teachers for the academic session 2010-11.
DLPs allow teachers to focus on lesson implementation; this helps in improving teaching standards by taking away the daily time and effort put in by the teachers for the daily lesson planning. DLPs have been structured around the Curriculum Resource Packs (CRPs) subjects and incorporate interactive teaching and learning approaches.
Curriculum Resource Packs comprise of a scheme of studies related to a centralised book list of private and government publications. CRPs are developed for two terms respectively. The teachers use these CRPs and DLPs to ensure effective teaching and learning in the classrooms.
