ASIAN COLLEGE OF TEACHERS – WHERE SKILFUL TEACHERS ARE BORN

A leading teacher training organisation where would-be-teachers learn the art of teaching!

One of the top-most teacher training organisations in Asia, Asian College of Teachers has an impressive record of training over 40,000 teachers. This award-winning institution has more than 100 robust courses in its kitty. All of these courses are research-driven and have proved to be highly effective in training aspirant teachers as well as working ones. 

It is the teachers who impart knowledge to students and enlighten them with their wisdom. However, even the teachers need to undergo rigorous training, and Asian College of Teachers is the place where teachers themselves are students. Here, they learn the various nuances of the teaching profession and come out as experienced, fully-trained and well-equipped teachers. Asian College of Teachers makes the teachers capable of shaping and moulding the minds and future of a multitude of students. 

Under the leadership of Dr. Sanjib Chakraborty, Asian College of Teachers has garnered loads of praises, accolades and recognition. He, along with his impeccable team, has led the teacher training organisation towards success. Together, they have guided numerous aspirants and working teachers all around the world. 

BIGGEST STRENGTH FOR ASIAN COLLEGE OF TEACHERS

Since its inception in the year 2007, Asian College of Teachers has accumulated a lot of experience. And that is what Dr. Chakraborty feels to be the biggest strength of the organisation. It has been almost 15 years, and ACT has faced multiple hurdles and obstacles during this journey. But the obstacles have helped ACT to come up with the right solution, “ideate and design relevant courses.” 

The second-biggest supporting pillar for Asian College of Teachers is their dynamic board of academics. Each of the academicians is highly experienced and knowledgeable. They hail from different backgrounds and contribute towards enriching the valuable academic resources of the institution. Besides, ACT collaborates with premium educational organisations and academic leaders globally. All of these result in amassing a vast knowledge hub for the would-be-teachers.

PRIMARY GOAL OF ACT

Team ACT aims at the creation of a highly competent teaching workforce. Asian College of Teachers works relentlessly with the purpose of enhancing skill and knowledge level. Team ACT prepares global educators who can flourish in the dynamic educational landscape, as well as teach and touch lives using their teaching skills.

TREADING TOWARDS AN EDUCATED SOCIETY

Asian College of Teachers, as mentioned earlier, never stops working towards the purpose of a completely educated society. In order to strengthen its services, ACT has been associating with multiple globally accredited educational bodies across the continents like Asia, Europe and America. While maintaining academic integrity, ACT ensures that it takes teacher education to “a whole new level.” 

Dr. Sanjib Chakraborty himself is on a mission to develop a significant international networking system for the betterment of Asian College of Teachers. For this purpose, he has been in constant touch with global bodies such as Training Qualifications UK, TESOL Canada, CPD Certification Service UK, World Certification Institute, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, European Internationally University, to name a few.

DR. SANJIB CHAKRABORTY – THE LEADER WHO AIMS TOWARDS THE BETTERMENT OF TEACHING COMMUNITY

The founder of Asian College of Teachers, Dr. Sanjib Chakraborty, is responsible for bringing ACT this far. His unique vision and innovative ideas have altered the profession of teaching to a great extent. An ardent traveller, Dr. Chakraborty has travelled to over 41 countries while conducting engaging teacher training workshops.

JOURNEY SO FAR

From being a corporate training executive in Kolkata to being the founder of Asian College of Teachers, Dr. Sanjib has come along a long way. Initially, he worked in managerial positions and eventually took leadership positions as Director before becoming an entrepreneur.

In 2003, he commenced a new phase of life as an entrepreneur and strategy consultant. His area of expertise has been entrepreneurship and hardcore marketing. He always lays extra emphasis on training and development. 

When Dr. Sanjib designs the custom-made courses, he focuses on instructional design, delivery process and adult learning tactics. With his innovative and unique course structures, he has been catering to the needs of individuals as well as organisations. 

OBSTACLES AND HINDRANCES

For ACT, the biggest challenge was a lack of awareness among people. Team ACT worked extremely hard to raise awareness regarding the necessity of teacher training. Even today, some aspiring teachers consider theoretical knowledge sufficient for becoming a professional teacher. Asian College of Teachers has worked hard to persuade teachers to invest their time and money in teacher training courses. It took a while before people realised that such courses help convert a mediocre teacher into a competent educator. 

CHANGE IN EDUCATION TRENDS 

ACT has been vocal and supportive of the online mode of education. But before the pandemic, people did not support online learning much. Post-COVID, the entire scenario has altered, and online education has become the new normal. Both teachers and students have embraced the online mode for imparting and gaining knowledge, respectively. Now parents and students are more than happy to pursue an online mode of learning. This indeed hints towards the ushering in of a whole new era for the modern education system. 

FEW WORDS OF ADVICE FOR THE READERS

People need to understand that teachers, too, need to go through a learning process so that they become reflective practitioners. Sinceteachers act as the backbone of society, they need to undergo rigorous teacher training. A teacher plays a significant role in nation-building by educating the youths of the country. Hence, there should be an innovative curriculum and modern training methodologies for all the aspiring teachers out there.
