Training and Development



At NIS, we believe in celebrating the diversity of the Human race and pride ourselves on giving equal and equitable opportunities to all faculty and staff.

To succeed at NIS, candidates need to be passionate, driven, dedicated and believe in offering the best part of themselves towards the betterment of child education.

For these reasons, all of our academic staff are automatically enrolled in the NIS Training Academy. Here, they receive intensive hands-on, minds-on coursework in the areas of Cooperative Learning, Flipped Classroom, Flex Model, and Station Rotation as integral components of our Blended Learning community.

Presentation Skills



Presentation skills are extremely essential for our NIS staff members to succeed professionally. In today’s business environment, the competition in the workplace is getting more competitive. It is no longer enough for you to have the necessary capability to do the job, you should also be able to talk well, write well, and present yourself attractively to your audience. What better way to let other people know what you’re capable of than by presenting a great idea or a plan during a meeting. However, you need to have the necessary presentation skills to succeed in this endeavor.

Technology

Technology in the classroom enables the use of more interactive educational tools, which allows for a dynamic learning experience that directly benefits students. Interaction involves not only sharing ideas and information with someone else but also receiving feedback. At NIS classroom computer technology is being used for different types of communication (for presentation, for class interaction, and for collaboration), students are required to be readers, writers, editors, and publishers and must be willing to collaborate and co-create closely with others — all skills that are critical for students to learn as they grow and enter the workplace.

Classroom Management



Teachers play various roles in a typical classroom, but surely one of the most important is that of classroom manager. Effective teaching and learning cannot take place in a poorly managed classroom. In contrast, well-managed classrooms provide an environment in which teaching and learning can flourish. But a well-managed classroom doesn’t just appear out of nowhere. It takes a good deal of effort to create—and the person who is most responsible for creating it is the teacher.

Child Psychology

Child psychology is one of the many branches of psychology and one of the most frequently studied specialty areas. This particular branch focuses on the mind of the child and provides the teachers with the right techniques to fully understand them and help them with all the correct means. (What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.)

Leadership Skills



The Leadership Trainings are designed to address the latest challenges in leadership development and research. The most recent research suggests five critical areas in which all leaders and key decisions makers should be well versed and competent. These five competencies translate into strategies and programs that deliver high performance and long term results.

Communication skills

Good communication skills help to reduce the barriers erected because of language and cultural differences. NIS provide communication training to reap the benefits of effective workplace communication. Effective communication causes productivity to increase, and errors to decrease.

Time Management



As a teacher, developing good time management skills and habits will reap many benefits that will enhance your personal and professional life. Time management will not only prevent you from missing important personal and academic deadlines, but you will also have more time to relax, sleep well, eat right, and exercise regularly. This course will help our teachers diminish stress and contribute to a healthy mind and body.

Cooperative Learning Program (English, French & Arabic)

This is a new strategy and technique that helps teachers to transfer knowledge from student to student. Cooperative learning empowers all students by providing every child the opportunity to become a leader. This program also minimizes the gap between the trouble-maker and the shy student by engaging all students into group learning and activities.

Stress Management



The benefits of this course is to learn how to manage this condition by changing the way you respond to stress, making time for relaxation and learning healthier coping strategies.
