Gateway Colleges Colombo, Kandy, Negombo and Bambalapitiya held their 15th Annual Teacher Training workshop at the Chaya Village and Cinnamon Lodge in Habarana on July 1 and 2. This year's training was conducted by a team of trainers from Adventure Asia International led by their lead trainer Peter Stewart. The conceptual framework for this programme was based on the Ethos 3-S model (SELF, STRIVE, SUPPORT).
A well trained teaching staff has always been a priority for Gateway. Over the years, Gateway teachers have had the opportunity of being trained by many local and International experts on various aspects. Gateway has also launched the Edexcel Professional Diploma in Teaching, especially for teachers who are qualified in their subject specialities, but have not had any formal teacher training.
Provision of learning of the highest global standards, while retaining the culture of the land, has been the raison d'etre for Gateway College since it was founded in 1997. Gateway College stands out among the International Schools in Sri Lanka, in that it follows the English National Curriculum in its entirety from the Foundation Level to the Advanced Level for students of Sri Lanka and other nationalities. With state-of-the-art facilities and a guarantee of not more than 25 students to a class, Gateway assures the best for every student. Gateway enjoys accredited teaching centre status from Edexcel - UK, Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and NCC Education - UK, enabling the school to conduct all examinations in-house. While achieving excellence in academic as well as co-curricular fields, students have thus lived up to the expectations of the founders by developing into wholesome personalities.
Having strengthened its position in the Primary and Secondary sectors, Gateway College has now embarked into the tertiary sector. With the opening of the Graduate School, Gateway College brings a new dimension to its existing provision from Play Group (2 ½ years+) to Degree Level, with a new focus and theme - "Foundation to Graduation".
