Following our Core Value of “inculcating a passion for excellence “, Step to Success faculty members undergo thorough training in teaching methodology and their specific subject areas, which is updated every year. While we have a part time Counsellor, teachers are also trained in basic counselling skills so they can spot changes in manifested behaviour among children and offer emotional support where needed. Our teachers take very seriously their responsibility of monitoring the personal and social well-being of our children including health, social and moral education.
Teachers are also given professional development opportunities. This includes the one year induction program, the foundation program , and need-based in-house skill development. All together, each teacher undertakes a minimum of ten days of formal training every year. This is in addition to the two-week orientation/induction for new teachers at the beginning of the academic year, followed by mentoring by more experienced teachers and Heads of Department over the course of the first year.
We believe that our students’ development is enhanced by continuous dialogue between their parents and our faculty, as part of our community -centric culture. This communication occurs through scheduled one-to-one meetings, the online School Management System , parent-teacher meetings, email, satisfaction surveys and quality audits.
Our faculty contributes their ideas, skills and expertise in evolving every facet of the schools functioning, from our culture, discipline and teaching practices, to assessment methodologies and community service.
