Quality Education – How far can it take you?

Quality Education – How far can it take you?
Quality education is the right of all. Dozens of policies worldwide have covered this subject. Right from primary school to postgraduate education, enrollments have been increasing since the past few decades. Pursuing an education is not enough. The quality of education is equally important when a kid sets about securing the first and foremost milestone of his/her life. The past decade saw concrete efforts towards education on a global level. Almost every generation becomes a witness to societal changes and educational transformations.

What does the concept of ‘quality education’ involve?

  • The concept of ‘quality education’ includes environments that are conducive, safe, receptive, decisive and gender-sensitive. These environments promote opulent resources and facilities.
  • It involves pursuers who are physically and mentally nourished, participatory, willing to transform and contribute to the extracurricular and curricular development. They are duly backed in their efforts by their families and communities.
  • It endorses and promotes processes by which proficient teachers utilize child-friendly approaches in welcomingly good and favourable classrooms. They deduce skilful assessments/audits to accelerate studies and curb the disparities or gaps.
  • It disseminates/distributes content which is reflective of easiness and materials to help instant or quick absorption of skills and knowledge.
  • The education should highlight the importance of literacy, life skills and knowledge in miscellaneous areas including nutrition, health, gender equality, communal harmony and universal peace.
  • Pinpoint and prioritize outcomes which are inclusive of all and are linked to the national goals for educational excellence and affirmative contributions in society.

How should we define quality education as modern people?
The definition of quality education would reflect a complex system embedded in political, socioeconomic and cultural contexts. The quality education must be open to random transformations and evolutions based on challenges, information and contexts prone to periodic changes. Educational systems that welcome changes through data creation, dissemination, effective usage and self-audits are likely to succeed in allocating quality education to all kinds of learners.

We would define quality education as the education more focused on relentless audits and improvisations on all dimensions. These dimensions include but aren’t restricted to learners, educational environments, quality content, its dissemination, procedures and outcomes. And most learners, communities, educationalists and institutions have realized that things learned in an institute and how the overall process occurs are as important as the access to quality education.

How far can quality education take you and various broader entities in your vicinity?
Education always shines out as one of the most significant investitures a nation could make towards its overall progress. Education is a beacon of transformation that can:

  • Improve health and livelihoods, participate in the actions dedicated to bringing social stability and sociopsychological growth.
  • Distribute among the learners the skills they need to grow into a society of economically prolific and conservative beings.
  • Invest in skills and measure the metrics behind effective learning and outcomes.
  • Bring about the effective didactic approaches to speed up and consolidate the aggregates and skills in and beyond the classroom.
  • Address all kinds of barriers to learning and help keep them at bay.
  • Invest in schools’ infrastructure and allocate systematic platforms of learning under both classroom and virtualized environments.
  • Build a society that is action-oriented and result-oriented and welcomes affirmative changes.
  • Help sustain the quality of life irrespective of the barriers.

Why Global School matters?

The impact of globalization over the past three decades has rapidly changed the lifestyle in the emerging world, and India is not an exception. With the advent of liberalization and privatization phenomenon, coupled with the integration of technology into the education realm, has further revolutionized the face of the learning system. One of the outcomes out of this rapid shift was International or Global Schools. With an exponential change in lifestyle, parents yearned for education that is qualitative, advanced, and global for children. Eventually, this drove a massive surge in demand for International Schools across cities in the country.  A vital imperative why global education skyrocketed in many cities is a rapid shift in the career landscape and competitive entrepreneurial activities. Moreover, the current job market is mainly looking for individuals with high core competency, decision-making, and leadership skills, besides theoretical acumen.

To address the pressing need, global schools placed engaging pedagogy, inclusive curriculum, expert faculty, tech-classrooms design, resourceful infrastructure, industry exposure and academic partnerships at the core of their ethos to build futuristic community. In line with this, they aimed at producing knowledge that has marketability and that which opens doors to the evolving global opportunities.

Independent thinking

One of the biggest steps of Global schools is that it encourages its teachers to transfer the responsibility of managing lessons to students where they learn the art of planning, research, time management, content delivery, presentation, and leadership skills. A core principle of global schools is to ensure students take ownership of their academic duties and learning through which they tend to discover new ideas and solutions to a given situation or challenge, rather than follow an established approach. Students at this stage become more active than passive learners by developing problem-solving, decision-making, and creative traits. The paradigm also gears young minds to discover their future passion and interest and work towards it right early. This is why Global Schools have a highly progressive outlook.

Global Content with task

An eye-catching feature of Global Schools is that they expose students to rigorous, relevant, and engaging global curriculum with global themes. The autonomous curriculum design and academic content, largely developed by subject matter experts, academics, and professional leaders, directly matches with the emerging learning trends and industry skills. An inspiring initiative of global schools is the after-school programs that involve students to actively engage in different real-time projects and training sessions to gain hands-on experience and critical thinking and analytical skills.

International Certification

Global opportunities fueled by growing technological advances has urged the need for higher competency and leadership skills in the career realm. In line with this, Global Schools adopt international curriculum recognized by global accreditation bodies like IGSCE or IB. This not only enables students an advantage to travel abroad for higher studies but also wayside competitive English Language exams and culture shock when landing for higher learning in any foreign university.

Pupil Diversity

One of the powerful sources of engagement in global schools is pupil diversity. Welcoming students from distant corners across the world, the global school promotes students to learn new languages, understand foreign cultures, and lifestyle patterns that are different from one’s own. As part of their core commitment, they expand the portfolio of countries annually to provide a perfect atmosphere and experience for students to express ideas and share thoughts, without giving room to stereotypes and social stigma in a learning space. The school in the process encourages children to pretend that would make them to respect the identity of others, but it does not stop there! It further leads children to understand global events and find solutions to global challenges.

Competent Faculty

Global Schools provides for an adequate student pupil ratio. It ensures that to maintain global education standard you need expert and creative faculty who possess and drives students to all possibilities to respond to a situation. Comprehensive teaching forms the foundation of the global school, which builds intellectual nimbleness among students to deal with complex issues. Personalized attention is a hallmark in global schools that attracts as it reduces the burden on parents to sit with children on homework. Faculty are adaptable and dynamic that helps them deliver program content smart and engaging through ICT, prototype materials, project-based, place-based experiential system rather than a rote method. Global Schools are extra careful in selecting teachers with strong experience and who are able to drive performance.

Resourceful Infrastructure

Learning choices is one of the enticing characters of Global Schools that ensure a robust inclusive learning experience. Moreover, to make students gain multi-literacy skills, Global Schools make considerable investments in infrastructure, cutting-edge technology-integrated classrooms, information and resource centers. As talent and interpersonal skills top the chart in the professional world, Global Schools encourage students to create multiple platforms, clubs, societies, and forums to nurture individual passions along with physical aptitude. Learning outside the walls is an essence of Global Schools where it harps on practical experience that can leave a major impact on learning and personality development, hence marks outdoor activities as an essential part of the curriculum. Through outdoor activities, Global Schools tend to balance the emotional intelligence of children, eventually leading them to work in team, venture, and push boundaries.

Counselling and Career Development

As every child comes with different aspirations, Global Schools believe that welfare support and counselling are pre-eminent to help them achieve along academic endeavors. A regular feedback mechanism makes Global Schools look more credible as it ensures that every child is safe and thriving. On the other, Global Schools organize field trips and industry exposure to evolve with the shifting career landscape.

More than anything, Global Schools aspire to create an atmosphere where children not only learn academic content but utilize every opportunity to the best and grow as responsible and change-making citizens of tomorrow.
