The workshop aims at facilitating schools to understand the requirements of Accreditation Standard for Quality School Governance, guiding schools for efficient utilisation of resources for effectiveness of the system, capacity building of schools for effective Curriculum Planning, delivery of Curriculum & Assessment Techniques for learning, handholding schools for benchmarking their practices with reference to research-based national & international best practices and, enabling schools for creating a healthy, safe and protective learning environment and attaining organizational excellence.
