“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” ― Benjamin Franklin
International Coordinators of SAI International School, Ms. Binati Misra and Ms. Jessica Patnaik attended the Annual National British Council School Ambassador (BCSA) Meet on the December 6 & 7 in New Delhi.
This two-day conference aimed at the learning and development of the School heads and teacher educators who are the British Council School Ambassadors. The objective was to develop an awareness on the scope of the School English Skills (SES) programs of the British Council, to create an awareness on reflective practices besides exploring the British Council continuous professional development frameworks for teacher educators and school leaders. The conference sessions also aimed at reviewing and familiarising with the inclusive practices at work within the context of British Council Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) policies.
The participants had an in-depth interactive session on core skills and their importance for students through group activities and presentation. The BCSAs were introduced to a range of digital resources for use in the classroom and professional development. Some fun digital games were played in groups which can be used as a powerful classroom resource. More chapters of process options for teacher trainers were unfolded which helped the teacher educators develop their professional acumen.
There were around sixty BCSAs who attended this conference. Sharing of best practices and information about new opportunities for schools were the best components of the sessions.
SAI International School has a long association with British Council and is involved in various programmes and activities. The School has been bestowed with the International School Award (ISA) three times in a row and is also recognised as an Ambassador School.
