The school works different international education agencies like British Council, School Enterprise Challenge, the Duke of Edinburgh International Award, UK among others to give students exposure to various skill–based education programmes that are internationally accredited.
The school received the International School Award for the year 2016-2019 from the British Council, as our students demonstrated the exemplary work. This award is given to schools by the British Council as a global accreditation scheme recognizing good practice in incorporating international dimension in schools that involves championing international work and collaboration with partners to build and develop lasting relationships, engaging young people in both the global economy and global citizenship, developing their skills for life and work and supporting whole- school projects that contribute towards school improvement and enrich education through international work.
The school also works with the School Enterprise Challenge, UK for developing essential skills for the 21 st century such as communication, teamwork, leadership and problem–solving. Our trained teachers help students to engage with age–appropriate business projects to develop these skills. The school has already achieved Bronze and Silver Level Certificates from the School Enterprise Challenge, and is applying for a gold level certificate soon. The school is planning to partner with Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), UK for sharing their time–tested teaching learning framework and assessment system to further improve the learning outcomes of students in the years ahead.
At NIST, students are also given an opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh International Award, UK. The award opens up the opportunity for students to develop a sense of responsibility to the self and society, personal growth and other life skills. The Award Leaders, who are trained in the Duke of Edinburgh International Award, guide students to become proficient at whatever sports or extra–curricular activities they are involved in, and apply for different awards – bronze, silver and gold depending on the level of their skills.
The students, who have received this award, stand a better chance of gaining admission into world–class universities across the world.
I am very much indebted to NIST for providing me such wonderful memories. The school management and administration were very cooperative which let students like me work hard and remain enthusiastic all year long. I feel really proud to be student of NIST.
I remember the first day I randomly walked into NIST to get the form for entrance test even though I had been selected for admission at St. Xavier’s College, as the turning point of my life. Those two years spent with wonderful friends and inspiring teachers built me the strong foundation of my professional achievements today.
NIST has given me a great platform to achieve my lifelong dreams. It has maintained its legacy for 27 years and done a great service to this nation by producing skilled human resources. I wish NIST all the best for the future.
I really feel great for being an alumnus of this renowned academic institution. Due to the strong foundation provided by NIST school with excellent teachers, staff mentors and homely educational environment, I have become capable of making my career in the field I aspired.
