AN overview

Our fellows, as key members of the Academic team, get an excellent opportunity to serve as full-time teachers in an environment where one can innovate, show their creative talents, continuously learn and get trained by leading educators.

 

Fellows are responsible for,

  • teaching students by using the framework, support and guidelines provided by the school

  • instructing in a way that ensures that every child is learning

  • monitoring  and assisting in the progress of students

  • actively participating in the in-house training sessions, workshops, department meetings and other opportunities for professional development.

 

The Fellowship begins with a 10-day induction program which ensures that the fellows have the knowledge and skills necessary to begin teaching in a classroom. After the induction program, fellows get their class allotments for the year. 

 

Fellows’ professional development sessions/workshops happen every month through which fellows get exposed to curriculum, lesson planning, behaviour management, student assessments, child safety and many more concepts to equip themselves to become excellent teachers. Additionally, observation debriefs and peer observations happen frequently to guide fellows towards reflective practice and excellence. Professional Development Conversations happen thrice a year where fellows have a space to zoom out and think about their professional development, their goals, strengths and areas of development. Based on the conversations, training and support structures are provided to equip them towards their career path. Fellows also get the opportunity to lead training sessions for their peers twice a year which helps them grow professionally.

From OUR FELLoWS

The Fellowship program is a great initiative for all candidates who are about to start off with their career as a teacher. It also provides an opportunity for those who wish to resume their career after a long break. I started my career as a fellow primary teacher where I used to work in pairs with another teacher. This gave me a lot of knowledge and experience on how to handle kids. Now, I am handling middle school children since the past 6 months and I can see an increased level of confidence in myself and I am happy to take the role of the class teacher as well. This has made me more responsible and I wish this learning never ends!

From our trainers

“I have a passion towards teaching and education but I am not sure if I can be a good teacher.”

 

Most newbies start their fellowship program with this self-doubt. RV’s Fellowship Program transforms them into competent teachers who end up saying, “I teach, What’s your superpower?”

On top of teaching, Fellows acquire skills, knowledge and mindset needed to work closely with the management on the school’s priorities like Curriculum Designing, Branding & Communication, Special Education, Visual and Performing Arts, School Administration, Child Protection, Infrastructural Development, Early Childhood Education, Sports, Fitness & Health and many more.

The fellowship program serves to be a platform for beginning teachers to build proficiency in teaching and gain expertise that aids learning in the classroom. Along with pedagogy, fellows learned to leverage the use of technology towards effective utilization of class hours.

 

The experience as a trainer was uplifting as the fellows actively engaged with the sessions thereby expanding the scope of the training program in the years to come.

Ensuring safety and well-being of children is elemental in any profession that demands interaction with children. At RV, our Fellowship training program includes modules that empower aspiring teachers to create safe and joyful environments for children to learn in and identify and report signs of child abuse and neglect.

These sessions include case-study based discussions that promote strengthening of the mindset of child safety. The learning and reflection that our fellows have through these sessions gives us the confidence to entrust them with creating positive learning environments for all our children.
