Professional Development of Educators at The Millennium School

A Comprehensive Approach to Teacher Development:

Class Concepts

At The Millennium School, we believe that happy, skilled and professionally developed teachers are the cornerstone of a successful educational environment. In today's rapidly changing educational landscape, continuous professional development of teachers is crucial to the growth of students. Teachers must adapt to new methodologies, technologies, and diverse student needs to foster an engaging and effective learning experience inside and beyond the classrooms.

Therefore, as one of the best CBSE schools in Greater Noida, our commitment to professional development ensures that our educators are not only well-prepared but also inspired to cultivate a love of learning in their students.

Our week-long teacher training program, also known as the ‘Professional Development Week’ or ‘Professional Learning Week’ for teachers is thoughtfully designed to enhance our educators’ knowledge, polish their skills, and support their working inside and outside classrooms.

Through regular observations, detailed feedback, and continuous learning opportunities, we ensure that teachers easily identify the areas of improvement and work on them to eliminate any learning gaps. These efforts are not just limited to the time of induction of new staff but also extend throughout the session to ensure ongoing professional growth of educators.
