To Indus Training And Research Institute (ITARI)
In today's Knowledge Age, teachers are change-agents who are expected to lead reforms
in curriculum, in students and in communities worldwide. The rapid rate of knowledge
obsolescence necessitates teachers to focus on lifelong learning, continuous professional
development, whole education and leadership. Indus has a vision and a higher purpose
that drives our passion for excellence in all spheres. We realize quality of teachers
is critical for educational institutions, hence, ITARI was set up with a specific
mission to ensure capacity building of all our firmaments. ITARI was inaugurated
on 1st Dec 2009, by Mr. Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco, California, U.S.A.
ITARI expeditiously strives towards developing the intellectual acumen of individuals
and develop their expertise to teach a cross spectrum of diverse groups of learners
of all age groups, nationalities, and subject areas, through the International Baccalaureate
ITARI is the first training institute in India to offer Postgraduate level, professional
teacher certification programmes in International Education, exclusively customized
to meet the requirement of international and progressive Schools. Our higher education programmes are offered in affiliation
with reputed British Universities and are recognized in 140 countries. All our Postgraduate
courses meet high academic standards with focus on practice-teaching, mentoring
and professional competencies equivalent to the National Teachers Standards stipulated
in England. We are fortunate to have remarkable leadership and faculty members within ITARI and the Indus Schools.
Our ability to forecast future trends, incorporate best pedagogic practices and
translate creative ideas into reality, have launched Indus International Schools
onto the echelon of success at National level. ITARI promotes teaching and education
administration as a respectable and a profitable career, aspiring to give this noble
vocation the impetus it deserves in transforming lives, families, the community
and society at large.
Since our inception in 2009, over a short span of 7 years, ITARI has registered
890 teachers on all our courses. Our qualifying teachers are recruited by leading
International Schools across the country and abroad. We continue to maintain 100%
programme success rate, with an average of 75% talent retention within Indus International
Schools, particularly, through our full-time courses. Our strategic objective is
to provide over 40% of trained Human Resource capital annually to the Indus International
Schools. We are an inclusive institute, welcoming trainees of varying learning abilities.
Admissions are provided to graduates of all age groups. We admit teachers, freshers,
working professionals, career transitioners to both full-time and part-time programmes,
and endeavor to meet their career aspirations fully. We absorb high achievers into
our pre-service IB induction programmes through campus recruitment. We also conduct
workshops and in-service programmes for Schools, tailored to their requirement,
across the country.
As an institution, we are making steady progress and amongst exciting recent developments,
we have collaborated formally with the prestigious University of Bath, UK for offering
the part-time MA in Education and the IB Educator Certificate (IBEC) as a dual qualification
at ITARI. This study programme will benefit IB Schools and Teachers across India,
Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific. We have also entered a strategic partnership for
joint research with the highly ranked University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK (ranked
54 out of 10,000 Universities in the World or ranked top 1% of Universities in the
World) for setting up the first ever School of the Future in India. The gravity
of our full-time PGDIE provision is continuing to be examined by the Birmingham
City University, UK. All developments of this programme are in consultation with
the School of Education of the Birmingham City University, with Adjunct Faculty
from UK visiting regularly.
