During the admission season, there is a lot talk and WhatsApp on which school to select for one’s child? That is an answer all parents want. For those seeking admission in international schools offering the International Baccalaureate, my advice is given below.
Every international school is good; but every international school has a different philosophy based on what they feel is the purpose of education. As parents, you must decide on the educational philosophy you believe in, and what is best suited for your child. In this regard, schools will fall into two broad categories.
The first category is traditional. They believe that the aim of education is teacher-centric, rote memorisation, scoring high marks in examination, and placements in reputed colleges abroad. Therefore, such schools tend to be exclusive, i.e., they admit students based solely on their academic performance at the time of entry. The problem here is that in the 21st century this is an outdated model, and is likely to put your child at risk.
The second category is where Indus schools lead. We believe that in a volatile and uncertain world, where job obsolescence is the order of the day, the purpose of education is to prepare a child for a future we do not know. Consequently, we are an inclusive school. We believe that, content knowledge is less important than entrepreneurial competencies, to enable a child to re-role, re-learn, re-skill and reinvent oneself. We believe that the purpose of education must also enable a child to find her purpose, and in the process, discover her potential.
Now, I sincerely hope you will find it easy to decide in which school to admit your child. If you still have doubts, you may write to me directly at email@example.com.
With warm regards,
As an unsure fresher, looking for a job as a teacher at a good school, being selected through campus recruitment and getting accepted into ITARI was an absolute blessing for me and my family. The PGCIE training I received was transformational. The faculty at ITARI are not only experts but warm, inspiring individuals who have, in a short time, impacted my life and career positively. Through ITARI I have been recruited as a teacher at Indus International School, Pune. I cherish my job, have got a great salary with perks. My students enjoy my teaching. I remain indefinitely indebted to the institute that I respect and love so dearly.
WARM, INSPIRING FACULTY
ITARI has provided me an engaging learning environment which is both enjoyable and informative. I am currently studying the PGDIE programme this year. I`m a boarder from outstation and live on the school campus. The high academic standing of ITARI faculty and school mentors make the PGDIE an extraordinary full-time teacher training programme, unlike any other in the country. The curriculum and assessment are holistic. What particularly strikes me is the perfect balance between theory and practice.
PERFECT BALANCE OF THEORY & PRACTICE
The Cambridge International Diploma (CIDTL, UK) gave me the flexible option of working and studying at the same time. The fee was reasonable. The workshops were very informative, thanks to the brilliant faculty members; the facilities, library, and logistic support were excellent. I was able to complete all the research modules prescribed by Cambridge International Examinations, get a distinction, and get a job at a reputed international school through ITARI placements. Many of my batchmates also got jobs in good schools including Indus. Thank you team ITARI, you have made all the difference in my career.
EXTREMELY INFORMATIVE WEBSITES
There are very few organisations today, wherein you are made to feel like you belong! I have been associated with Indus International School for more than five years now. I have been an Indus parent, a demanding member of the PAC, a PGDIE trainee at ITARI, and now after a rigorous one-year training with internship finally recruited as a teacher at Indus International School, Bangalore. It`s been worth it, and I am where I want to be. Thank you ITARI for challenging me to raise the bar, for your unflinching support, and for being my home away from home!.
