To ignite and inspire young minds, Maitreya Education has a team of qualified and well trained faculty which hail from some of the recognised academic institutes and universities. These eminent academicians are recruited after a gruelling selection process and have to undergo a rigorous training which further sharpens their skills.
It is to be noted that Maitreya has the highest faculty base among other players in the Indian test preparatory industry. Our large pool of faculty members enables us to allocate multiple faculty members for each subject and course, which helps prevent dependence on particular faculty members and ensures minimal disruptions in our operations due to absence of any faculty members. With our large pool of faculty, we are also able to maintain a student –faculty ratio that helps ensure adequate supervision by our faculty members and effective response to each student’s need on an individual basis.
We have systematic recruitment and training programs for our faculty members, which facilitate scalable growth while maintaining quality across our Maitreya centres. We hire graduates from universities and higher education institutes and experienced teachers of public schools. Our recruitment process includes subject tests, lecture demonstration, personal interviews and final management review. We train all newly employed faculty members in coaching methodologies and skills, classroom delivery and evaluation methods as well as soft skills in communications, student psychology, student mentoring, classroom management and personal development.
In addition to this, our faculty members undergo training in coaching and mentoring students. Faculty members mentor our students to enhance their capabilities by identifying patterns in their performance, concentrating on the strengths and weaknesses of students based on internal performance indicators and enabling a positive approach to examinations. Our faculty members provide counselling services to our students in order to build the right mindset towards studies, addressing pressure and stress levels and enabling a suitable physical and mental environment. Our faculty members make constant efforts to reach out to each of the students and pay close attention to their needs by helping them in their day-to-day academic studies. Further, we conduct regular training sessions for our faculty members on teaching methodologies and teaching skills in order to equip them to adapt to students’ changing needs and changing examination trends as well as academic syllabus. The quality of our faculty is important to the success of our Company and accordingly, we strive to maintain a large pool of faculty with consistent quality.
