Faculty Upskilling Program
For Higher Secondary Schools
Commonwealth Infrastructure Partners UK and Learningberg provide training programmes for schools that develop international best practice for school management, and for teaching and learning methods. The training programmes focus on the most up-to-date methods to maximise learning ability and aptitude, moving from teacher-centric to learner-centric methods.
Our programmes for schools help to foster a positive and progressive whole-school culture, optimising the environment for excellence in teaching and for enlivening creativity and learning ability in the students.
The CIP & Learningberg schools programmes enable teachers to keep up to date with the best practices in teaching, and for bringing out the best in all students. The programme creates a synergy amongst teachers and a unity of purpose for the school.
The programme will empower the Principal, senior teachers and subject teachers with the capacity and abilities to use modern teaching methods and technology to allow all students to make the most of their learning experience at school.
By using the best teaching and learning methods, teachers and students alike can make the best connections between the learning process and real-life experiences, preparing students for higher education and professional life, and for having a fulfilling role in society.
Learner-centric education makes the process of gaining knowledge more fulfilling and purposeful. This assists in creating a common purpose amongst teachers and learners.
