TAISI or The Association of International Schools of India was founded in 2005 with the prime objective of providing a platform for schools and its stakeholders to unite and engage. Over the years, TAISI has been pivotal in organising workshops, dialogues, and building cooperation, and alliances. TAISI focuses on skill building for students, professional development for teachers, and leadership building for heads. Maximizing learning for the students is at the core of everything.
More than 150 institutions are associated with TAISI, including schools, universities, education boards, publishers, technology providers and auxiliary education service providers.
Membership is open to all schools, regardless of the curriculum offered. The common goal for all TAISI members is to foster greater international understanding, and promote values of tolerance, secularism and multiculturalism.
The association organizes various professional development programmes for school leaders, middle management and teachers. In the recent past, TAISI has brought speakers from across the world to further its objective of value-based learning.
Some of the most prominent speakers at TAISI have been Bambi Betts of the Principals Training Centre and the Academy of International School heads, Susan Baum and Henry Nicols from the International Centre for Talent Development, Kevin Bartlett and Gordon Eldridge from the International School of Brussels, Ellen Stern of the Cairo American School, James MacDonald from the Yokohama International School, Malcolm Nicolson from IBMYP, among many others.
