The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) will conduct leadership training programmes for principals of its affiliated schools to “enhance the competencies of the school leader for effective implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in schools”.

The training will be held in conjunction with National Institute of Education International (NIEI) Singapore, according to the CISCE.

Some of the other objectives of the programme are to “enlarge the educational capacities” of school leaders, “ to garner support from school management as they prepare their schools for the implementation of the NEP 2020, “ to provide an overview of global emerging trends in education, NEP 2020 and its impact on curriculum and the systems within the school, “to understand the new normal of schooling in India and to equip school leaders with leadership skills to enable them to navigate effectively through the challenges in shaping policies and practices in schools to meet the new requirements of schooling,” the council said in a circular issued to schools.

The training programme will also provide “ a forum for exchange of ideas and views by experts from NIEI International, Singapore and the participants.”

The NIE International, Singapore, a national teacher education institute in the country provides all levels of teacher education for aspiring and in-service teachers and for departmental heads and principals of schools.

The council will accommodate a maximum 60 participants on a first come first serve basis.

Most schools have welcomed the council’s decision to conduct such a training programme.

The council has taken the initiative to conduct a training programme for school leaders with an aim to equip them with the skills to run the institutions in tune with the new changes in the coming years with the implementation of the NEP 2020, said Sujoy Biswas, principal of Rammohan Mission High School, Kolkata.

Though the seats are limited many school heads expressed their keenness to participate in the training programme.

Terence John, principal Julien Day School, Kalyani said his institution is yet to decide on whether they will participate in the programme or not.

“But we are looking forward to joining the training sessions. Apart from general management, school principals play an important role in managing teaching responsibilities and ensuring that the institution is following the prescribed curriculum properly. The training will help school leaders improve their skills,” he said.

Rev. Rodney Borneo, principal of St. Augustine Day School, Shyamnagar  said the training programme will empower them to play a bigger role in managing and improving imparting education in the new education scenario.
