Important Announcement- Launch of I am a Teacher PG Diploma at American School of Bombay
It was four years ago that we took the first decisive step. Over a decade of working with teachers at The Heritage Schools had shown us how teachers aren’t merely the life and blood of schools, but of entire nations and civilisations. What were we to do with this massive realization? How were we going to share the learnings from this work with the wider world? How were we going to become the much needed catalysts of change in the education system? It seemed essential, it seemed inevitable; in an act of courage we took that first step and I Am A Teacher was born.
Our vision has since been clear. We want every child-centred, good practice classroom in the country to be at the heart of the learning process for teachers-in-the-making. Such classrooms, when opened to student teachers, can radically transform the quality of our teacher preparation programmes, ultimately helping reform our schools and our future.
There is no better time than now to take the next step, and so we are happy to share news of the launch of the Mumbai chapter of the Post-Graduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching (PGDLT) in partnership with the American School of Bombay as our host school. Founded in 1981, the American School of Bombay has established itself as a premier international institution of K-12 learning. It upholds a belief in empowered teachers who are able to nurture thriving learning communities. By opening its classrooms to students of the PGDLT programme, ASB is strengthening its status as a professional learning centre that develops world class educators.
IAAT has been conducting PGDLT, an innovative, practice based program aimed at helping participants evolve into confident, reflective practitioners and life-long learners, in Gurgaon since 2015. The programme’s unique blend of theory and practice, combined with an emphasis on collaborative learning and peer support, gives student teachers a field-tested foundation for success in classrooms. The success of the programme is evident from the fact that after graduating, all student teachers have been successfully placed in leading schools and organisations in the National Capital Region. None of this would have been possible without your support, as active partners in our journey to reimagine education in India.
If you are interested to know more about PGDLT in Gurgaon or Mumbai, please attend the session on January 20 in the meditation centre at 10:00 am. To register, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at +91 9810236412.
