Strategic Management & Leadership for Principals of CBSE Schools

Strategic Management & Leadership

As you may be aware, CBSE has been conducting training programmes for principals in ‘Strategic Management & Leadership’ in collaboration with the Indian Institutes of Management and NUEPA, New Delhi. The overwhelming response from the Principals of affiliated schools has made the Board explore other avenues for providing training to Heads of Institutions since the intake for these courses is hugely oversubscribed.

Hence, the CBSE approached Management Development Institute, Gurgaon for strategic collaboration to provide empowerment to Principals of Senior Secondary Schools affiliated to CBSE. The Board is pleased to state that the Management Development Institute, Gurgaon has confirmed four programmes on its campus with the following objectives:-

  • Contextualising the initiatives and flagship programmes of CBSE such as Comprehensive Schools Health Programmes, Life Skills Programmes, Adolescent Education Programmes and Introduction of CCE as well as other alternative modes of assessment in the programme
  • Introducing and managing change within the school system in the context of school reforms initiated by CBSE such as replacing marks with grades, Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) different mode of assessment – formative & summative assessment, incorporating multiple intelligence conceptual framework for assessment and innovative ways of transaction
  • Developing systemic strategies and processes for managing key functional areas in schools, such as financial management and resource mobilization, management of human resources and interpersonal relations and resolution of conflicts
  • Identifying and implementing suitable systems of appraisal and evaluation of feedback for teachers and staff
  • Place of value systems and culture in the present educational system: identifying options and evolving choices
  • Achieving personal growth (intellectual, emotional and social) and organisational development

The fee for the six day training programme will be Rs. 25,000/- per participant which will include the training fee, boarding and lodging of the participants at the venue and reading materials.
