CENTRE FOR LEARNING AND TEACHING (CLT)
At Step by Step, we believe that a school grows as a learning organisation if the faculty and students are continuously learning and growing. Recruiting, developing and retaining committed and creative educators are priorities for the school. To that end, we have embedded a professional development centre for educators at the heart of the institution. The Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) offers pre-service and in-service training courses for teachers, heads of department and administrators at Step by Step as well as schools across the NCR. We envisage training for special educators, P.E. teachers and library resource managers, in addition to courses offered for the Principal, educational managers and teachers.
We place great emphasis on the professional development of our staff and student development and offer workshops for parents on a range of subjects and areas that concern them. Our Advisor Professional Development, Ms Mamta Kapoor, works across the school, parent and student community to plan an annual Professional Development Calendar that supports the needs of the entire school community.
At the Centre for Learning and Teaching, we have planned for IT-enabled training suites, seminar and discussion rooms, video conferencing facilities and a library for educators. Weekly training programmes will offer teachers the opportunity to upgrade and retrain. We are confident that in time, the centre will become an educational ‘hub’ for sharing good practices across schools and that will benefit students everywhere.
