Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP)
Effective Strategies

Since March 2020, in order to ensure great life and learning outcomes for our students, we have worked with teachers to focus on holistic development of students.

We are transforming our certificate courses now and will henceforth focus more on enabling teachers by providing content in a form, which we call Effective Strategies. In NEW NORMAL, to remain effective, teacher’s will need new strategies to impact student learning outcomes.

We have been overwhelmed by your eagerness to learn since the launch of LLP in the last week of March 2020. Following your encouraging response to our earlier LLP editions and the Lifelong Learning Series, we are announcing next courses in LLP. In this edition, we transform LLP certificate courses to bring you a set of Effective Strategies to build capacity on several topics
This will be a 2 step process:

  1. We will begin by devising a well defined goal as expected outcome of every course and ensure that all course content addresses behavioural adaptation and creation of structures to ensure that outcome.
  2. And, as an end result, we will equip teachers with certain decisive to-dos (tools and resources) which are ready to be deployed in their classrooms for effective implementation of these strategies.
