Value-based Education: The foundation of COLOURS Institutions
By Aparna Shivapura
Today’s learning environment and society at large, is hugely competitive. There is huge pressure on children, parents, teachers, and educational institutions to get children “READY” for the competitive world. Unfortunately, as a result of this, there is tremendous pressure created on individuals and the overall learning environment. Many educational institutions take up extreme measures to deal with this and children end up getting stifled in such a system.
PFLA Academy spearheads a change in this direction. PFLA and all its brands have a path breaking approach in education and have forged many new paths in this direction. The Academy and its main offering, the COLOURS group of schools is a refreshing change in this field. The primary objective and vision is that of imparting Values to children, through innovative teaching methods, a dynamic and energized teaching and learning environment, on a long-term basis.
The concept of Value-based or Values-driven education is gaining lot of momentum in the education space in India and also the world over. This method of teaching creates a strong learning environment, focusing largely on the overall and holistic development of the child, at a very young vulnerable young. And this is the approach taken by COLOURS.
Today’s competitive environment makes learning a pressure, a cause of fear amongst children. The COLOURS Foundation school completely departs from that. One of its fundamental beliefs and methodologies is that it creates a fun-filled, interactive and inspiring atmosphere for children! This ensures that they are free from phobia, on-boarding fears and adjusting challenges are reduced. A method of teaching which incorporates value based learning, life skills, academic education and holistic development is the greatest advantage provided by this method of learning. In fact, it is now an imperative mandate in selective schools that value-based education becomes the corner stone of the education system.
At COLOURS, our principles of education are by imparting values at the grassroots level. The most inspiring part of the approach taken by COLOURS is that it ensures that the teaching fraternity, each and every member of the teaching community is trained and expertise is built into the teaching methodologies. This ensures that the conceptual learning is implemented practically into the children’s routines. And this is perhaps, the single-most impactful reason for the high success rate of teaching and learning in all of COLOURS institution, powered by PFLA. In fact, the leadership and vision of PFLA believes that there is a great and growing need for every institution to inculcate value-based education in its approach, methodology and very foundation of teaching.
