Skills Builder Programme

TI School is a great example of a school that is fully committed to offering a comprehensive essential skills education to its students. Although the school had been teaching life skills for quite some time, it was not always focused and structured. Hence, along with the Skills Builder Partnership, TI School has been working to ensure that every child builds the essential skills that they need to succeed. Skills Builder provides a well-structured framework to teach the essential skills that the students need in their future. TI School has been part of Skills Builder Global Accelerator programme from 2021.

Journey so far:

TI School sought to make essential skills education a part of the curriculum in a structured manner during the lockdown in June 2021. Classes III, IV, VII & VIII were part of the programme. Skills Builder training and resources were provided to teachers to ensure the language was being used. The framework has helped the staff to check the progress of students and provide a clear starting point as well as a defined teaching sequence. Most part of the academic transaction was conducted virtually because of the lock down and the teaching of essential skills was integrated into the time table, where staff used short activities and videos from the Skills Builder Hub, which require minimal preparation and encourage reflection. Post lockdown when students returned to school, through displays in the classroom, assemblies and Project day the essential skills were reinforced. The students actively participated in the classes and are more aware of the required skills. The school has received the Bronze Award for implementing the required skills in students.

Journey ahead:

The school will continue to work towards embedding the wide range of principles in 2022-23. Students of classes III to IX will be part of the process. Skills such as Listening, Speaking, Creativity, Problem Solving, Staying Positive, Team Work, Leadership and Aiming High will be focussed.
