Faculty Development

Faculty Development

The teachers at FIPS are dedicated to shaping young lives with singular commitment and creativity. They embody our  Core Values and bring our Core Purpose to life. Our faculty comprises qualified educators. empowering and sensitive individuals, who enable a warm and open – yet challenging environment which inspires learning, both academic and personal.

Our faculty is selected from abroad through a rigorous process of interviews, inductions and practical demonstrations of their abilities. They are a mixture of youth and experience, with educational as well as real world expertise.

Chosen for their innovative and effective skills, our teachers are supported by top-of-the-line facilities / resources, customised teaching aids, and multimedia options, including the science, computer and math labs. This helps them to accurately execute our dynamic teaching-learning model and interpret our unique curriculum.

Following our Core Value of inculcating a passion for Excellence  FIPS faculty members undergo thorough training in teaching methodology and their specific subject areas, which is updated every year. While we have a Counsellor, teachers are also trained in basic counselling skills so they can spot changes in manifested behaviour among children and offer emotional support where needed. Our teachers take very seriously their responsibility of monitoring the personal and social well-being of our children including health, social and moral education.

Teachers are also given professional development opportunities. This includes  induction program, specific Cambridge offline and online courses, the foundation program and need-based in-house skill development. We believe that our students’ development is enhanced by continuous dialogue between their parents and our faculty, as part of our Community -centric culture. This communication occurs through scheduled one-to-one meetings, parent-teacher meetings, email, satisfaction surveys and quality audits.

Our faculty contributes their ideas, skills and expertise in evolving every facet of the schools functioning, from our culture, discipline and teaching practices, to assessment methodologies and community service. With an incredible strength of focus and a zeal for excellence, our teachers are perfect role models and guides for the children, and active agents for change and growth.
