Welcome To ITARI  

In today's Knowledge Age, teachers are change-agents who are expected to lead reforms in curriculum, in students and in communities worldwide. The rapid rate of knowledge obsolescence necessitates teachers to focus on lifelong learning, continuous professional development, whole education and leadership. Indus has a vision and a higher purpose that drives our passion for excellence in all spheres. We realize quality of teachers is critical for educational institutions, hence, ITARI was set up with a specific mission to ensure capacity building of all our firmaments. ITARI was inaugurated on 1st Dec 2009, by Mr. Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco, California, U.S.A. ITARI expeditiously strives towards developing the intellectual acumen of individuals and develop their expertise to teach a cross spectrum of diverse groups of learners of all age groups, nationalities, and subject areas, through the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum.

ITARI is the first training institute in India to offer Postgraduate level, professional teacher certification programmes in International Education, exclusively customized to meet the requirement of international and progressive Schools. We are fortunate to have remarkable leadership and faculty members within ITARI and the Indus Schools. Our ability to forecast future trends, incorporate best pedagogic practices and translate creative ideas into reality, have launched Indus International Schools onto the echelon of success at National level. ITARI promotes teaching and education administration as a respectable and a profitable career, aspiring to give this noble vocation the impetus it deserves in transforming lives, families, the community and society at large. Our higher education programmes are offered in affiliation with reputed British Universities and are recognized in 140 countries. All our Postgraduate courses meet high academic standards with focus on practice-teaching, mentoring and professional competencies equivalent to the National Teachers Standards stipulated in England.

Since our inception in 2009, over a short span of 6 years, ITARI has registered 524 teachers on all our courses. Our qualifying teachers are recruited by leading International Schools across the country and abroad. We continue to maintain 100% programme success rate, with an average of 75% talent retention within Indus International Schools, particularly, through our full-time courses. Our strategic objective is to provide over 40% of trained Human Resource capital annually to the Indus International Schools. We are an inclusive institute, welcoming trainees of varying learning abilities. Admissions are provided to graduates of all age groups. We admit teachers, freshers, working professionals, career transitioners to both full-time and part-time programmes, and endeavor to meet their career aspirations fully. We absorb high achievers into our pre-service IB induction programmes through campus recruitment. We also conduct workshops and in-service programmes for Schools, tailored to their requirement, across the country.

As an institution, we are making steady progress and amongst exciting recent developments in 2015, we are in the advanced stages of collaborating formally with the Birmingham City University, UK; looking forward to a new state of the art building for ITARI on School campus, and are launching an official ITARI alumni network.
