CIE – Key Focus Areas
The CIE places the utmost importance on teacher development, with workshops and online sessions regularly arranged for the same. Teachers are compulsorily supposed to attend these. The CIE provides the teachers with all the required textbooks, test papers, syllabi, etc.
At the primary and lower secondary levels, a program called ICT starters is also compulsory for the students. This is either offered as a separate program or is embedded within the corresponding program. Schools are also provided software tools to be used for teaching, learning and assessment.
The curriculum is highly modular and promotes its adoption by schools alongside another curriculum. At the secondary and the higher secondary stage, a wide variety of options are presented to the students, both for those who want to opt for a narrow line of subject areas and for those who want to cover a wide range of subjects
