Manipal Global, CENTA launch Teacher Training, School Leadership Programmes

Bengaluru, Jul 7 (UNI) The Manipal Global Education Services (MaGE) on Tuesday joined hands with the Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA), a leading organisation for teacher accreditation as well as professional development support, to launch programmes in teacher training and school leadership development.
According to a statement issued here, the COVID-19 outbreak has radically transformed the traditional structure of the education system. It has provided the opportunity to rethink and re-imagine the education system. The pandemic has witnessed a significant surge in the demand for trained teachers.
This has led to job creation in the teaching field. With the globalisation of schools and curricula, there are also several international placement opportunities opening up, it added.
The statement said the MaGE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CENTA, offering an excellent opportunity for people wanting to get into the teaching profession.
Speaking on the collaboration, Subrat Mohanty, Group President, Manipal Education and Medical Group, said, ''Creating a pipeline of trained and effective teachers is critical to improving education outcomes in India. We believe a strong faculty and teacher development programme will help in creating a future-ready workforce that will power our aspiration of a USD five trillion economy.
''The Manipal group has been a pioneer in creating high-quality education ecosystems and we are delighted to partner with CENTA in building a world-class teacher training programme, Mr Mohanty added.
The programme for teachers aims to equip school educators and aspiring teachers, including working professionals from other domains, with future skills and practical skill-sets needed to be an effective teacher and, through a widely-accepted certification, strengthen their ability to get premium teaching jobs in India and abroad, he said.
The school leadership programme will be primarily aimed at principals and senior teachers, helping them with the management positions in schools. In both programmes, keeping in mind the current situation of the pandemic, there will be a focus on the importance of online tutoring and the practical skills required for effective instruction through a digital platform, Mr Mohanty added.
