Today’s children are growing up in a dramatically different socio-economic-technological environment, from what it used to be a few decades ago. Ergo, teaching them is a much bigger challenge for teachers today. To be effective and efficient today, teachers must keep abreast of the latest knowledge about how children learn.
For Atul Vidyalaya, staff development is a priority area with a generous budget. There are regular in-service programmes by well known resource persons held in the school. Teachers are given time to plan and introspect. They are encouraged to participate in academic seminars, training programmes and subject-related meetings organised by other schools and institutions. Teachers are encouraged to offer their services for correction of ICSE & ISC public examination answer scripts.
In the course of designing training programmes as much importance is given to character and attitude development as is given to subject-related competencies.
