Reward & Recognition Outcomes –TEEP 2015


TEEP REGULAR PROGRAM


Process: TEEP assessment is done on a score of 1000 points. Schools are recognized for attaining a specific score band for the first time or “sustained award” for maintaining excellence levels within the specific score-bands. The score is given by a team of trained Assessors. The Assessors also give strengths and OFI (Opportunities for Improvement) to the schools for working on further improvements. Jury nominated by TEEP executive-committee reviews the score.

Starting from 2015, a 2 year assessment cycle has been introduced wherein some schools undergo Regular Assessment in the first year and the remaining undergo Regular Assessment in the second year. Awards and commendations therefore are given at the end of the 2 year cycle. Dip Check Assessment, a shortened version of Regular Assessment, is carried out for those schools which do not undergo Regular Assessment.

TEEP Background & Introduction:

  • Launched in 2003, the Tata Education Excellence Programme has in the past years promoted Excellence in Education in the schools of Jamshedpur and a select few in the vicinity of Tata Steel’s out locations. TEEP has completed 12 years since its inception
  • The programme was conceived as a tool to enable schools improve the quality of education so that they may offer greater value to the students and create a culture of excellence to nurture the “citizens of tomorrow.”
  • A formal committee instituted by Tata Steel governs the programme. All resources required for it are disbursed by the Company as part of its corporate social responsibility.
  • Almost over 50 schools (ICSE, CBSE and other boards touching 2500 teachers & 100000 students) regularly participate in this noble and unique private endeavour. The programme is unique in at least following two perspectives.
    • Similar programme is being promoted by the government of developed countries notably US, Australia, Europe and Singapore. No-where in the world it is a private initiative of such kind.
    • The principal and teachers of schools are trained to take up the role of Assessors as against paid Quality professionals from outside.This has resulted into continuous development of teachers and principals and has brought critical mindset change needed for transformation.
  • 17 schools had participated in the award in the first year in 2004.
