Our faculty at the Delhi Cambridge School enlarges the learning experience. All teachers live on the campus and are actively involved in the extra and co-curricular activities that are pencilled into the daily routine of the students. Be it on the sports field, the sphere of publications or debates, teachers take an active interest and share a healthy rapport with the boys.
Every teacher is assigned a tutorial group of about ten students. The interaction with this group goes beyond the usual facilitator’s role. Pastoral and counselory roles are merged, and the students benefit immensely. Occasional outings with tutors to explore the DCS Valley and midterm expeditions strengthen the bonds between students and teachers.
Teacher training programmes organised at the Teachers’ Center and workshops attended at different venues are a regular feature and ensure that the faculty keeps abreast of the latest developments in the field of education. The school is committed to increasing its teacher development programmes, both academic and non-academic.
Hobby Teachers, who excel in their skill, are ever ready to transmit their ideas & skills through interesting & easily acquirable learning programmes. There are special teacher for Music & Painting, which subjects are considered essential for the development of the child’s personality irrespective of age, sex, colour or community.
Special attention is paid to the development of IT skills through exposure to Computers from a very early age. Computer Teachers take practical classes and teach the children the joys of Information Technology education.
In the Hostels, where the children spend two periods in the morning & evening in their Prep Rooms, the Warden & the Matrons provide a helping hand to them to renew & polish what they learn.
The faculty members are encouraged to upgrade their skills and update their knowledge on a regular basis and are often introduced for refresher courses.
Besides, It is mandatory that the teachers undergo at least one training session in a year in areas such as teaching methodologies, use of technology in class and such related subjects.
At DCS, we value our most invaluable resource – our teachers. They, in turn, not only transact the curriculum, but also generate an enthusiasm for learning and a questioning, critical disposition.
