MIPD
 /  Millennium Institute of Professional Development

Darling-Hammond & McLaughlin, 1995

Today,  teacher training and professional development are seen as central mechanisms for the improvement of teachers’  content knowledge and their teaching skills and practices in order to meet high educational standards (Darling-Hammond  &  McLaughlin,  1995).

Millennium Institute of Professional Development MIPD is Pakistan’s leading teacher training and professional development Institute. It’s a venture borne out of three decades of educational excellence by Pakistan’s leading educational system. The aim is to develop the enormous potential of teachers through skill development and enrichment to improve quality education in Millennium Education. All training courses are designed to promote a conducive learning environment by inculcating a drive for excellence and foster a culture of collaboration, collegiality, and communication in classrooms. MIPD’s training initiatives attract public & private school teachers, national educational offices, school administrative and leadership staff, principals, educational leaders, academic directors, student counselors, school groups, fresh graduates, mid-career professionals, and Montessori  Practitioners, young graduate, and housewives.

Competent, Consistent, and Creative teacher is one of the most significant resources of any educational institution as she is a professional agent and the most directly responsible person in the process of learning. MIPD pays extensive focus on the excellence of teachers’ training and development with the belief that the success of an institution is based on the collective efforts of a diverse workforce made up of individuals who are committed to bringing excellence in their practices. Our institution has an extensive experience of conducting workshops and training under two tiers; Essential & Extended (E & E) which promotes Engagement within relevant concepts, principles, theories, and international best practices, Innovation with new ideas and approaches as a reflective practitioner, Evaluation of experiences and outcomes to plan further development and Improvement through the quality of their teaching and leadership to enhance the quality of their students’ learning.

Over all-purpose remains the same to ensemble the future of practitioners with a diverse range of qualifications, courses, workshops, sessions, mentoring, need-based coaching and one to one counselling to enhance their significant role in shaping the future of our learners. It is a challenging world and every new normal demands different skills. To fulfill that teachers have to abreast of ever-changing trends in education and be actively involved in their continuous professional development and we are always there to support them as the sole savior of today’s world is the teacher who can change classrooms from knowledge centers to learning communities.

It’s a common phrase “what gets measured gets done.” Defining and measuring effectiveness is a critical task and that need support in term of continuous enrichment and development at the workplace. Keeping in mind the paradigm shift in the 21st century working environment, MIPD has a comprehensive framework which has two tiers of Essential and Extended Trainings to cater the needs of TME and external educators’ community.

Tiers have clear bifurcations based on priority of skills, behaviors, and attitudes that the TME faculty member in their workplace need to perform their roles effectively as a trained faculty member is critical to academic achievement. Essential programmes are aimed at answering what, why and how questions. They are mandatory for all staff to attend after the completion of their probation period in their particular domain. The main purpose is to ensure the standardization of practices across the organization. However, Extended programmes covers International courses and workshops. These continuous professional development opportunities are provided to teacher, school leaders and other staff members who have been with organization for at least three years and would like to develop their practice in specific areas. These training sessions encourage teachers, school leaders and other participants to reflect on their practices. Creativity, innovation, and critical thinking are the hall mark of these courses.

MIPD Frame work is comprises of 5 Major Strands based on specific “competencies” required by the individuals in two categories as mentioned above of Essential & Extended;

1.       Teaching & Learning

2.       Digital Inclusions

3.       Academic Leadership

4.       Administration

5.       Edge

Frame work is designed to cater following intentions;

·         Ensure that all TME faculty demonstrate sufficient expertise and mentor new staff more effectively.

·         Evaluate performance more effectively and with tangible date after induction training.

·         Identify skill and competency gaps more efficiently.

·         Provide more customized training and professional development.

·         Plan sufficiently for succession and make change management processes work more efficiently.

TME endorse the fact that every individual requires the training for performing the various activities in a systematic manner. Trainings and professional development are prime opportunities to expand the knowledge base of all employees in every field of TME both as an individual and as a whole. All programmes are relevant as per the abilities, domains and SOPs of The Millennium Education. As per policy MIPD ensures that any employee being hired in any capacity will get an orientation and complete workshop as an induction and then in succession they will do extended courses. The overall purpose of this framework is to assess, maintain, and monitor the knowledge, skills, and attributes of people in The Millennium Education and promote merit based succession. Training framework allows our faculty to measure their current competency levels to make sure that they all must have the required expertise needed to add value to the organization and self enhancement. We in MIPD know the fact that professional development is different in diverse settings, and even within one setting there may be a variety of dimensions. There is not “one best” form of professional development that can be implemented anywhere therefore, we have range of programmes to cater and sustain our future needs and our cultural beliefs and give all members opportunities of National and International exposure to sustain the sense of efficacy and professional motivation.

MIPD provides an inclusive culture for everyone ensuring equal access to trainings, catering to individual needs, in order to enable candidates, to fully participate in the learning process. The main goal of MIPD is to systematically design and implement educational programmes to equip all those involved in the education of young learners with an ability to employ action in the right direction. The training opportunities are based on a varied range of enrichment activities which aim to provide basic knowledge of teaching and learning and modern pedagogical techniques which help teachers to fulfill their full potential. We also provide support and guidance to all staff members and participants from other organisations to build their career with a provision of well thought out activities. At MIPD, The teacher training courses are specifically designed to shape and empower teachers to be the very best that they can be, to strive daily to deliver the very best learning outcomes for each and every child. Our teachers’ motto is – “EVERY CHILD, EVERY CHANCE, and EVERY DAY.”

Essentials

The Essentials programmes address the foundations of day-to-day business work. From academic writing and presentation skills to soft-skills, practicing appropriate professional etiquette, and

communicating effectively and presenting research based work in an organize manner. These qualifications are designed and offered to teachers, administrative staff (campus managers), middle management (school coordinators, level or subject coordinators) and school leaders (Principals, section heads). The content and instructions cater to specific needs of departments and professionals. The wide range of PD opportunities in this domain help the professionals in developing their professional profile and competence. These training programmes are available face to face, online or a blend of both. Qualified team of trainers and qualification specialists have designed the content of these training programmes.

Extended

Extended Programmes covers International courses and workshops. These CPD opportunities are provided to teacher, school leaders and other staff members who have been teaching in schools for at least three years and would like to develop their practice in specific areas. These training sessions encourage teachers, school leaders and other participants to reflect on their practices. Creativity, innovation, and critical thinking are the hall mark of these courses. There three different

strands offered at this level.

Teachers and school leaders can choose to focus on:

1- Concepts or ideas (subject based)

2- Skills ( job based)

3- A particular aspect of a syllabus, curriculum framework or requirement related to job description.

Millennial schools are found across the country, in a range of different social, cultural, economic settings. This variety means that detailed recommendations will not be relevant or helpful.  Effective teachers will learn from educational research and their own experience, adapt ideas intelligently and apply them to their current context. We have designed the MIPD Teaching Standards to be as open as possible so teachers can apply them to their own contexts. They are based on the principle that effective teaching has many common practices, so they are relevant to all teachers in Millennium schools. The standards are consistent with contemporary international research into effective teaching. Teachers who use the Standards to evaluate their own practice and guide their continuing professional development should be in a strong position to achieve the desired curriculum outcomes. Teachers aspiring to develop their career prospects will find the standards a helpful guide to the scope of the teaching role and aspects they want to develop.

There are eight MIPD Teacher’s Standards. Each Standard contains a number of individual Standard statements that are detailed and concrete. They outline what a teacher should know and be able to do, or demonstrate, in terms of their professional knowledge, practice and engagement. The Standards provide a benchmark for what we call a Good Teacher. Teachers use standards to reflect on teaching practices and help them to determine areas and priorities for their own professional development. This might include participating in an appropriate national and international professional development qualification and certification programme. These training programmes are designed in alignment with the attributes of millennial learners and teachers are also relevant to the standards set for the good teachers. MIPD helps schools carry out self-evaluation and identify the areas in teaching and learning where they need help in their school development plans. MIPD then plans and provides an effective and comprehensive training programme to convert weaknesses into strengths. All the training programmes offered by MIPD which include Core, Essential and Extended are designed to develop these standards amongst teachers.
