The National Education Policy of India 2020 (NEP 2020), approved by the Union Cabinet of India on 29 July 2020, outlines the vision of the new education system of India. It replaces the previous National Policy on Education, 1986. The vision of the policy is to build an education system rooted in Indian ethos that contributes directly to transforming India by providing high-quality education to all, thereby making India a global knowledge superpower.
We have introduced unique approaches for different subjects to ensure students learn subjects as a skill rather than gain just theoretical knowledge. The classroom interactions, activities and routines at LEAD also make learning holistic and experiential.
LEAD imparts strong language learning from early pre-primary years with our English Language and General Awareness (ELGA) and Sampoorna Hindi programs. While in class, we embrace activity-based learning to ensure students can easily grasp abstract subjects like Maths. Extensive practice and situation-based questions ensure the concepts get stronger.
In our school curriculum, we have introduced subjects such as Coding & Computational Skills (CCS) program. Rather than simply consuming content using technology, our students become creators by using technology to build. apps, games, and websites and thus become future-ready.
The young minds of tomorrow will only be strengthened when we empower our educators. We do this through our extensive Teacher Development Workshops (TDWs). These sessions upskill and
reinvigorate teachers to overcome challenges
At LEAD, assessments target learning outcomes & competency. With remedial and doubt solving sessions, our teachers understand students’ struggles and help them overcome their challenges.
