At the School Level, we work with schools to see that children are taught how to learn and solve problems on their own by experiencing things themselves. A good use of visual aids and educational toys help make learning more effective and interesting. Homework is given to reinforce what is done in class and also an opportunity for parents to take part in the learning of their children from home.
Children are continuously assessed throughout their process of education which introduces and reinforces concepts and activities as the children go from one stage to another.
The staff of ESP works with school teachers as a team so as to ensure continuity and balance between the cognitive, socio-affective and motor skills. A child’s introduction to school is of utmost importance, as these first impressions may well influence the rest of the child’s life.
Specific aims of ESP
- To make all children happy at school. If children are happy in their environment, their minds will be at peace and hence open to learning and receptive to new ideas.
- To provide an all-round education. The whole child is considered to be important i.e. the physical, mental, emotional and moral aspect is emphasized. All this provides a strong foundation that will later help our pupils become eager students, self-confident and able to interact favorably with each other and with adults, both at school and in other communities.
- To make them aware of their needs and the needs of others. This builds love, care and compassion.
Teachers Support Strategies
ESP works with teachers to implement strategies that will make a teacher successful both in and outside of the classroom. We work with teachers to first of all generate a good reason for being a teacher. The reason has to be powerful enough to propel a teacher, regardless of many challenges that may come their way.
There are plenty of people out there who will tell you teaching won’t work… that teachers are nuts… that a teacher will never be rich. We all know some people like that… always ready to rain on your parade.
We know that teaching is a rewarding yet demanding profession, one in which a person needs to be fully prepared. ESP focuses on the applied psychological skills, strategies and resources, which will help to ensure, a teacher is equipped with personal and professional expertise to survive both in and out of the classroom.
ESP considers, reflects upon and offers strategies for improving psychological aspects, such as motivation, confidence and self-esteem, emotions, mood and stress, and crucially, adapting to change. It reviews, establishing successful strategies concerning health, nutrition and hydration which fuel and energize successful teaching. It evaluates setting goals, learning how to relax, cognitive restructuring and developing mental resilience for the tough journey towards successful teaching. Finally, it prepares the teacher for the ongoing journey towards excellence and success in teaching.
Teachers always find themselves put under pressure by government strategies, management, students, parents, and their own families, not to mention self-imposed pressures! ESP guides the teacher to identify problems through targeted reflection and suggests strategies to suit the individual.
Final outcomes will have a common thread, that of a happier, healthier, self-confident and therefore more motivated and effective teacher. We find this program helpful to empower teachers to understand how they think and work and how to control and use these traits to improve their lives and careers. The activities and reflections are thought provoking and lead the individual teacher to solutions and satisfying actions.
