The British Council’s ISA is making deep inroads into our curriculum. Working in line with the modern-day teaching concepts, it gives both teachers and students a new perspective about teaching and learning. ISA is preparing a nursery of learners with cosmopolitan approach. It is content free and schools are encouraged to embed it within their own curriculum. It gives context to practice new skills in Information & Communication Technology (ICT) and pedagogy in a safe and structured manner. In this way, it is making new and dependable bonds of respect and care among the teachers and learners hailing from diverse backgrounds. The project is concerned with using and promoting the best practices to harmonise society as a whole.
ISA brings local and international schools close to each other and thus builds cultural relationships. It has proved a way that facilitates students and teachers adopt good practices. Teachers learn and adopt different ways of teaching.
Both public and private schools participate in ISA competition. But the number of public schools winning ISA is greater than private schools. Private schools have to pay for their participation while the public schools are involved in this activity through British Council collaboration.
The Master Trainers of ISA are validated by British Council through an international form. Now QAED will prepare more master Trainers and will get their validation by British Council. More schools will be selected for participation in ISA. QAED will make it possible that teachers are professionally developed to compete for ISA.
