QUALITY ASSURANCE/ENHANCEMENT CELL
School Evaluation Unit (SEU), an autonomous independent unit of the Beaconhouse Group, offers high impact school evaluations, monitoring and reviews. The SEU evaluates schools to support data-driven decisions, enabling them to provide education of international quality and ensuring the well-being of the young people in their care. The SEU team comprises highly skilled and experienced professionals, trained in international school evaluation standards. SEU has also been involved with developing quality parameters to help sustain low fee private schools. Following the evaluation process, a detailed evaluation report is prepared which depicts areas of excellence and challenges to help schools learn how to leverage creative collaboration. Based on our findings, we are responsible for devising a School Improvement Plan (SIP) which can be implemented in order to bridge the identified gaps in the evaluation process.
TEACHING & LEARNING MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT
These professional development initiatives are customised to the individual needs of our clients; through an extensive Training Needs Assessment (TNA), each training program is carefully designed to maximize the output of the targeted audience. In addition to this, the Lesson Plans designed for the teachers are based on the desired Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) which provides step by step methodologies and activities to deliver it effectively. Teaching aids include guidance for the teachers on teaching sessions, materials required, activities, assessment techniques and homework assignments. In addition to all this, we have in-house developed textbooks, workbooks and readers.
We at PDLC firmly believe that involving the community as an active stakeholder in the education of the young is imperative in ensuring their educational development. Premier DLC has designed mobilisation plans targeted towards parents, community members and influencers alike in order to encourage social change which help remove barriers in attaining formal education. The end goal is to foster a well informed and civilized community that helps in maintaining an environment of education and learning.
ASSESSMENT & EVALUATION
Premier DLC has developed rounded and evaluative mechanisms that not only target students and educational professionals but also assess schools to provide a conducive learning environment. These assessments are designed and conducted using formative and summative assessments which depict the overall understanding and knowledge of students SLOs and enables us with understanding the gaps of teacher knowledge and teaching techniques. Once the assessment process is complete, an in-depth statistical report is generated which shows a comparison of subjects against respective Student Learning Outcomes. After reviewing the assessment reports, our consultants review the teaching methodology and resources in place to identify the reasons for low performance.

SURVEYS & DATA ANALYSIS

These studies are conducted across different social settings, including the school, the household, and the larger community, and aim at facilitating our clients’ decision-making process.
MARKETING & CAMPAIGNING
Marketing and Campaigning for education are playing an important role in society to educate the masses. Marketing awareness is conducted through different mediums such as television, radio, print (newspapers, posters and flyers) and online platforms (social media – Facebook, Linked In, Blogs, Twitter and YouTube). Campaigns don't have to rely solely on advertisements and can also include door to door activity, community engagement, word of mouth, presentations and roadshows. Multiple channels are implemented and coordinated to deliver effective results and satisfy the needs of the clients as these activities are intended to promote awareness among parents, students, education institutes and other related professionals.
In the ever-evolving educational environment and requirements of the present, there is a surge in the market of increasingly affordable digital products such as smartphones, tablets and e-readers which are reshaping the way one thinks about teaching and learning methodologies. With the fast-paced technological development the world is experiencing, we feel it has become the need of the hour for students to use technology to aid their learning in and beyond the classroom.
