Nurturing lives, building futures

Mumbai, 17th April 2023: Jio Institute has partnered with the Principals’ Training Center (PTC), headquartered in Florida, USA, to bring to India, its uniquely designed training programs for educators and school leaders in India.

PTC is a leading provider that caters to the unique professional learning needs of practicing and aspiring principals, teachers, heads of departments, counsellors, and board members of schools worldwide. It provides world-class, research-driven, practical training, designed to be put into practice in K-12 schools.

The first PTC program being launched in India is ‘Creating an Effective School’©. It offers the knowledge and skills for school leaders to articulate a vision to design and implement a plan for an effective school focused on student learning and improving outcomes. It addresses the ‘big picture’ of what schools are and how leaders can optimize conditions to maximize learning by focusing on results. All PTC courses utilize simulations, case studies and other practical training strategies. The course content has been tailored to meet the requirements of the Indian context.

“Collaboration between Jio Institute and Principals’ Training Center is a powerful alliance to bring innovative educational practices and training to our schools, that can pave the way for a brighter future of our students”, said Dr G Ravichandran, Provost, Jio Institute. “Our partnership with PTC underscores our commitment to providing world-class education that is responsive to the changing needs of the world,” he added.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Jio Institute and offer the first program ‘Creating an Effective School’ in India," said Bambi Betts, Executive Director at Principals’ Training Center. “Significant research confirms that school leaders CAN have a meaningful impact on student learning. The exciting work ahead is to ensure every single school leader acquires the skills to make that impact.”

The course on ‘Creating an Effective School’ is open to educators and leaders from across all educational boards and schools – international schools, CBSE schools, ICSE schools, and schools affiliated to state education boards. The program will be offered from 22 May to 28 May 2023 (Monday to Sunday). It will be a 7-day residential program at the Jio Institute’s campus in Ulwe (Navi Mumbai). Scholarships will be provided to select candidates based on merit.

The PTC's Certificate of International School Leadership is earned by completing four ‘essential skills’ courses. They are Creating an Effective School; Leadership and Team Dynamics; Instructional Supervision and Evaluation; Curriculum Leadership; Assessment Leadership; and Technology Leadership, among others.
