Professional Development Programme (PDP)

In service training  for school staff leadership development
The school may deliver a structured programme with the help of visiting faculty and experts who take time out to work with the school staff and offer eLearning services.

The Fabindia School in association with EBD Educational Pvt Ltd has set up a Learning Resource Centre (LRC) at Bali village and is offering an opportunity to the school staff and schools in the neighbourhood, for up-skilling and professional development. We are happy to share the structure of the PDP and will appreciate teachers and professionals join us in this effort.

Mission
We are working for improving the quality of the education workforce and help the schools deliver better. This is achieved through the delivery of excellence in school operations by involving the community, the school staff and the school management. 

Duration 
One year
Term time  > Four hours a week, three weeks a month = 12 hours X 8 months = 96 hours
Summer Holidays > Six hours a day, 24 days in the month = 144 hours 
This is the minimum time requirement, individuals may do more in one calendar year.
