    Teaching Essentials Certificate Course is a program of study primarily for people who are currently teaching, but have had little or no formal teacher education.

    The philosophy of CPD is based on 70:20:10 Model for Learning and Development. Based on research and observation carried out from the 1960s until present. Morgan McCall and his colleagues, el M. Lombardo and Robert A. Eichinger working at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) are usually credited with originating the 70:20:10 ratio (Crush, 2016). This Model captures the three types of learning - experiential, social and formal - and explains their relationship to one another. It holds that individuals obtain 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal educational events.

    The proposed CPD framework establishes three key domains of knowledge and skills which are professional knowledge, professional practices and professional dispositions. This framework constitutes certain set of key competencies under each domain. Therefore, this framework is comprehensive in its nature as it not only highlights the key domains, but also provides the core competencies which are covered under each area. 

    CPD framework ensures to cater to teachers’ diverse needs and provide opportunities to acquire essential competencies and develop them over a period. The proposed CPD framework establishes a three-level development:

    1. Foundation level
    2. Advance level
    3. Specialization level

    Stage I – Basic Level

    This stage has been built with a special focus of preparing new entrants in the field of teaching to become well versant with the basic needs of pedagogy that will enable them to successfully run their classes in the first couple of years in the profession, especially if  the new teachers have attended any teaching courses at all or few. To begin with, they will participate in the ‘Basic Course’ which will help them in developing better understanding about children and their role in helping children learn. It will provide a basic orientation to teaching as a profession and introduce the key aspects of teaching, learning and assessments. Also, it will help novice teachers to reflect on their classroom experiences with guidance and learn from feedback

    The foundation level professional development opportunity will enable teachers to get oriented with the fundamental aspects of teaching and learning and to get acquainted with the basic skills required to perform the following:

    • Demonstrate a basic understanding of educational philosophy when planning and teaching
    • Plan lessons to achieve SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timed) objectives aligned with the grade level they teach
    • Use essential strategies to evaluate student learning
    • Communicate in the target/ instructional language
    • Give clear instructions to students to engage them in meaningful learning
    • Review students’ work and provide timely feedback
    • Able to self-reflect and learn from experiences, workshops and support provided to improve classroom practices.
    • Understand the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the subject he or she teaches and create learning experiences that make these aspects of the discipline accessible and meaningful for learners to assure mastery of the content
    • Connect concepts and use differing perspectives to engage learners in critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative problem solving related to authentic local and global issues
    • Use multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress, and to guide the teacher’s decision making
    • Use a variety of instructional strategies to encourage learners to develop deep understanding of content areas and their connections, and to build skills to apply knowledge in meaningful ways

    Stage II– Progression Level

    At this stage majority of teachers will get opportunity to participate in the need based formal and non-formal CPD programs (short term and/or long term) and get variety of learning spaces/avenues within and beyond school context to develop professionally. This level is for extended period to provide opportunity for teachers to develop gradually towards a more advanced state whereby they can independently with minimum support develop professional development path for themselves.

    The progression level CPD opportunity will enable teachers to have a deeper and thorough understanding of educational philosophy, teaching and learning approaches, and contextually relevant assessment practices. Also, it will give a comprehensive skill set to teachers to perform the following:

    • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the Bloom’s Taxonomy and engage students in creative tasks, project works, inquiry-based teaching, etc. Use variety of questioning skills to engage students in high order thinking
    • Design effective test and use a range of assessment procedures to support and promote learning
    • Employ multiple strategies to foster a collaborative classroom culture, student leadership, bringing in creativity and innovation to teaching going beyond transmission to transformation aiming at developing inquisitiveness, ethical consciousness and intellectual humility among learners
    • Reflect on the teaching and learning practices to strengthen good practices and identify and plan areas of improvement by conducting action research to improve classroom practice
    • Implement instructional strategies for effective classroom organization and behavior management
    • Analyze students’ work and plan remedial support accordingly
    • Communicates and ensure students communicate in the target/ instructional language

    Stage III– Specialization Level

    At the Specialization level, a teacher will demonstrate mastery in an area of classroom teaching or its related functions in addition to a general sound understanding of the entire teaching learning process. Teachers will develop an advanced level of understanding and expertise both in pedagogy and andragogy to create community of practice within their context.  In this regard, teachers will take more self-directed initiatives and play a leading role (as master trainer or mentor) in sharing their expertise with colleagues to contribute in curriculum enrichment and whole school improvement. In addition, teachers build linkages with other schools and search for avenues of offline and online CPD opportunities to develop professional learning networks. The premier stage i.e. Specialization level will be an aspiration and dream for teachers to achieve, being too demanding and require scholarly contribution in promoting student excellence and excellence in teaching. The Specialization level CPD opportunity will enable teachers to have a highest level of commitment and skill set which make them stand-out as an exemplary practitioner and a resource person, capable of performing the following:

    • Be a role model for other teachers by demonstrating exemplary teaching practice both in content and pedagogy
    • Support colleagues in acquiring mastery in subject content, pedagogical skills, 21st century skills including IT and research skills
    • Coach /mentor other teachers in taking initiatives related to subject content and pedagogy for effective classroom practices
    • Facilitate teachers for conducting need-based classroom research studies and disseminating learning through variety of forums
    • Timely assist teachers in diagnosing contextual need and emerging issues in the school and provide critical feedback based on concrete evidences
