Need for Capacity building Programs in Schools
Quality concerns in school education are among the priorities of CBSE as they play a pivotal role in the development of the country. The Board is committed to make provisions for various training programmes for teachers and principals to enhance their understanding of curriculum and delivery mechanism and other professional qualities. T he training of the teachers assumes even greater significance in the wake of Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act-2009 to ensure the target achievement as per the proposed teacher student ratio proposed in the Act.

Benefits to Schools:
- Leadership Training for Teachers:
The workshop on ‘Leadership’ helps teachers understand their role as a leader who encourages students and becomes their role model. A teacher has to play several roles besides being a teacher. She has to co-ordinate with students, management, colleagues and parents. So the workshop helps the teachers to do multi-tasking, manageself while managing students, management and other external stake holders along with managing time and set priorities. As a result it helps the teachers to meet different calls with enthusiasm and without tension.
- Leadership & Innovation Training for Students:
The workshop on ‘Leadership and Innovation’ helps students identify their potential to lead and become creative. According to Denis Waitley ,
“You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization. ”
The workshop helps students realize that achieving dreams is possible. Though, mere dreaming is not enough. Rather the inner urge to do things differently and help others, must exist. This workshop provides impetus to students to start thinking and working differently.
