School Programs

Swansea is about creating like minded networks with other international schools where learners can become global citizens and benefit from networking with other schools in activities such as:

Conferences:

Students have opportunities at various age levels to attend 'Google hangout' Conferences. Participation in such conferences helps students to develop social and language skills and provides opportunities for broadening international experiences.

All conferences are action-packed, vibrant, social and intellectual occasions which greatly enhance the ability of the young people who attend them to grasp a more complete world view – as well as a more complete view of themselves.

Projects:

One of the most exciting aspects of participating in 'online' projects is the contact with other schools or individual student learners around the world. Projects that are meaningful, relevant and focused on improving English communication, Science and Maths. We already have a strong link with an Australian primary school with the endeavor to link into other countries and schools around the world.

For example: Project one: View From Classroom Window

In this project the students are asked to write about what they can see from the classroom window. If possible, also take some pictures. Then exchange these with their internet friend from another country. Exchange can be written or through verbal conversations in order to practice communication skills in English.

Exchange programs:

A key feature an exchange program experience is the exchanges of students and academic staff between member schools. Teacher exchanges may last for one academic year, and student exchanges vary but are usually one or two terms or semesters in duration. Each individual Round Square School sets its own terms and conditions for exchange and provides its own requirements, information and advice. Anyone wishing to arrange an exchange can find a partner by logging in and using the exchange online tools.

Workshops:

Teach through hands on practical workshops and heaps of online interaction. Come prepared with Ipads, papers, resources, printouts etc.

College Programmes

Many college students face the common problem that although they had spent several years studying English at school, they lack confidence to communicate in the language.

We hear many college students say "I also studied English at a language centre, but I still found it hard to complete the intermediate course. Now I'm a university student, but the language is like my nemesis,".

Many young students only learn enough English to pass examinations, when in reality, they need to be able to communicate.

Some students understand English grammar very well, and even score high marks in examinations, but their communication skills are very poor and they are often too shy to even attempt to strike up a conversation.

Swansea help students gain confidence and step forward to speak in front of other people. Our English course help students to focus on the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Students first take the pre assessment which will help them their proficiency level as per the CEFR International standards and then recommended appropriate course to develop further to higher levels.

Soft Skills:

Our Soft skills training programmes have been successful in many colleges and help them work ready for the employers.

Corparates Programme

Organisations across the world today, recognize the importance of instilling the right attitude in their employees. "If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior", says the great American psychiatrist, Dr. William Glasser. The change in behaviour requires them to unlearn behaviour ingrained in them over a period of time and imbibe new behavioural skills. Corporate Training in India has, in recent times, made this the prime focus.

We are often asked the question, "What does behavioural skills training mean?" The simple response is, "The focus of the training is on enhancing the behaviours, suggested by the organization, in the participants." Behavioural Training helps individuals to take a look at their behaviour patterns, and equips them with new skills to identify new patterns to get better results.read more...
