Jalandhar, February 23
Bharti Institute of Public Policy (BIPP) at the Indian School of Business launched an online refresher workshop for directly recruiting principals of senior secondary schools of Punjab School Education Department, selected through Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC).
As many as 150 participants would be trained during the refresher workshop. Principal Ritu Paul from Government Senior Secondary School (GSSS), Bajwa Kalan Jalandhar; Kamaljit Kaur from GSSS Baghela, Jalandhar; Suraj Gurung from GSSS Gumtala; and Vikramjit from GSSS Sohal Jahir Jalandhar among others were also the part of the workshop.
Dr Aarushi Jain, associate director, Indian School of Business, who is also the course coordinator of this training, said: “The current pandemic has posed a huge challenge for every sector and education sector has been equally impacted. The workshop is a part of an overarching project titled Improving Quality of Education in Punjab that Indian School of Business (ISB) is undertaking with the Department of School Education, Punjab.”
“The school-level initiatives taken by principals during this challenging time is commendable and exemplary,” she said.
The idea is to orient and provide appropriate direction to principals, who are at the beginning of their careers. The training has been designed with a special focus on critical roles of principals as decision-makers, team leaders and other functional areas. The goal is to build capacities in government schools in the state and provide the newly recruited principals much-needed impetus and exposure on management concepts.
Senior faculty members from ISB and experts from the education sector are the experts for the training.
