Staff Development

The members of RiverDale staff are periodically involved in programs of training and staff development. These include in-house sessions facilitated by existing staff and visiting faculty, as well as external sessions conducted by expert agencies

These training sessions serve to help the school's faculty to constantly refine their teaching skills, improve their classroom management techniques, learn to work more harmoniously as a team, and learn to motivate their students to constantly strive for excellence in everything they do.

These staff development training interventions also focus on attitudinal issues which help clarify vital concepts such as desirable teacher-student relations, attitude of service in the work of teachers, aims and objective of education, and others.

At a different level, teachers routinely participate in subject-specific training sessions organized by and on behalf of the CISCE at its various regional and national centers helping them to constantly improve their subject specific teaching skills.
