Who are we?
The Teachers’ Resource Centre (TRC) is a non-profit, non-government organisation, established in 1986. A group of educationists formed TRC as a response to the declining standards of education in both government and private sector schools. We are registered under the Societies Act XXI of 1860, and are tax exempt under section 47 (i) (d) of the income tax rules. An elected Governing Body representing schools that use our services manages TRC. We have a dedicated staff of full-time and part-time personnel, who carry out all TRC activities. Our membership consists of institutional members, predominantly schools and school networks.
What do we believe in?
TRC views the learning process as one that involves far more than the simple transfer of information. Education is a process that requires an understanding of concepts, the acquisition of skills and the development of thinking and reasoning, communication and problem-solving skills. ‘Real’ learning takes place in secure, non-threatening environments, where respect for self and for others is fostered. Another integral part of TRC’s professional and intellectual ethos is environmental education, which we actively incorporate into all of our activities.
Our Core Values
TRC’s focus is improving children’s learning experiences in the school environment. We are committed to this concept in its totality.
To stretch towards challenge and accept challenge as part of our daily working life.
To be open and honest in our communication, and to share whatever information we have which can be of benefit to each other, and the organisation.
To maintain confidentiality of information, in relation to organisations and individuals that we work with on behalf of TRC.
Creativity and Innovation
To be innovative in our approach, in order to create new ideas which will enhance the child’s learning experience.
To use resources in a sustainable manner, and actively encourage re-cycling. TRC is committed to the environment and it’s preservation.
To positively encourage equality of opportunity in both employment and provision of services.
To be ethical and maintain integrity in all our work and relationships.
To be flexible in meeting challenges in a changing environment, in organisational roles and directions.
To ensure that at all times we are courteous and respect others, be they within or outside the organisation and regardless of their socio-economic position in society, their gender, regional or religious affiliations.
To work in collaboration with colleagues, on the basis that through the contribution of diverse individuals, teams can achieve what an individual cannot. To view our work with schools and their staff as a partnership – partners in the child’s educational development.
To have a broad vision which encompasses not only our own organisational goals, but the goals of the community in which we are working.
