Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur recently launched a new program “PG Certificate in Applied Educational Leadership and Management” in collaboration with Fordham University, USA for school teachers currently in or moving into leadership roles. It is a specialized one year long online program with 4 modules and 15 courses aims to improve the effectiveness of the teaching community by improving their support structures.
Xavier School of Management recently hosted an event ‘Teach India; Reach India’ – National Colloquium on School Education and launched this unique leadership and management programme. This program was Conceived by CeRTEL (Centre for Research, Training, Education and Leadership), XLRI and aims to enhance the teaching/learning experience in the schools of India along with the domain and managerial competence of teaching community.
We need for competent, qualified and focused teachers in order to reform and revamp the education system. The demands of the job market today are very different from what it was a decade ago. Today it needs to teach the students to work collaboratively, to be self-starters, to be able to work with different cultures and above all to work with integrity. We also need to teach children to be able to sift through the vast ocean of data available, to interpret it in the right way anduse it appropriately. Teacher training and retraining is the need of the hour.
Speaking about the program, Rev. Dr. Francis Peter, S. J. Chairperson, CeRTEL, XLRI said, “Majority of the Principals take over their roles as school administrators without any formal leadership and managerial training. They often only have their teacher diploma, and move on from hands-on managing and developing some practical ways a mind set to run their institution. In response to the request of the Principals at a focused group discussion, CeRTEL has launched the PG Certificate in Applied Educational Leadership and Management program for school teachers currently in or moving into leadership roles.”
This Specialized Online program has been carefully designed with the objective of improving leadership administration in the emerging educational contexts; acquire and adopt the right leadership style for managing change; keep abreast of research & educational practices that enhance teaching and learning; enable a deeper, critical understanding of the organization, and the environment we operate in; and, grow and develop along with colleagues, organization and stakeholders.
The program’s curriculum includes sustained input, job-embedded activities, collegian discussions, and hands on project and is designed to provide participants with practical educational leadership skills.
The course module spread across 12 months is divided into 4 modules and 15 courses. 10 of these courses will be delivered online in D2D (Desktop to Desktop) mode and the remaining 5 in workshop mode at XLRI campus. Participants clearing this program, would be awarded Diploma on the Annual Graduation Day at XLRI and would gain XLRI Alumni status.
