School Engagement Programme

Announcements - February 2018

The School Engagement Programme implemented by Macmillan Publishers India Private Limited is a realisation of Macmillan’s vision to be ‘Partners in Education’ with schools. It is a part of Macmillan’s endeavour to be more than just a publisher and enrich schools through its expertise in content development--scholastic and co–scholastic, training and assessment.

Through this programme, Macmillan supports its customers in areas which are important to them. These areas of support could be organising an annual day function, holding an intra-school debate, bringing out a school magazine or other such events that offer experiential opportunities for students, teachers and schools.  

PROGRAMME GOALS

1. To empower schools to offer holistic education to students keeping both the scholastic and co-scholastic development in view.

2. To develop and reinforce skills in students and supplement classroom curriculum with relevant learning experiences.

3. To reaffirm self-identity and cultural awareness in students by providing them with opportunities for interaction and creativity.

4. To develop mutual support and understanding between Macmillan and its customer schools.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE The School Engagement Programme is designed as an on-going programme in which Macmillan offers support directly to a selected school or schools. The purpose of such a programme is to help young people appreciate the importance of holistic education. The programme develops and nurtures a positive and long-term relationship between Macmillan and its customer schools.
