GIIS KL wins Malaysia Productivity Corporations Prime Ministers Award for Industry Excellence 2009What makes the accolade outstanding is the fact that GIIS is the only international school to win the prestigious Prime Minister’s Award for Industry Excellence.

The MPC Industry Excellence Awards are given to practitioners of various industries who have achieved the highest level of performance and excellence in their given field by the Ministry of International Trade & Industry, Government of Malaysia. Out of 175 companies, which participated for the awards in various categories, only 24 were selected as winners. Winning the MPC Industry Excellence Award marks a major milestone for GIIS KL. It has achieved a level of recognition and excellence rarely seen in the education industry.

“We are very honoured’’ said Mr Atul Temurnikar, Chairman GIF. “GIIS Malaysia’s win reflects the outstanding accomplishment and performance of our school. We are proud to be one of only two educational institutions to win this prestigious award this year.”

The MPC team was highly impressed with GIIS’s comprehensive student Academic Performance Management system, where the incremental student value-add is monitored and tracked very closely semester by semester. Another notable feature is the sharing of best practices through GIIS Leadership summits, across GIIS schools, which has helped GIIS KL to implement successful initiatives similar to GIIS Singapore schools.

At GIIS KL, students are productively engaged at various levels leading to improvement in their learning outcomes. The tremendous opportunities presented by such student engagements were among the key points appreciated by the MPC team. Action Research Consulting (projects led and completed by students, with teacher as a facilitator) and activity based learning, both important components of GIISs learning pedagogy, were specially acknowledged.

Mr Manoj Nair, Country Director, GIIS Malaysia, is thrilled with the win. He feels that the award validates the constant improvement in its education and emphasizes the best service provided by GIIS KL. There is no denying that winning this award will make GIIS KL a premier international school not just in Malaysia, but in Asia.

“Last 3 years of hard work by the entire team of GIIS culminated in wining this award. I am elated and humbled by this recognition and the credit goes to each and every person of the GIIS family, past and present. The good work continues with the gear shifted to excellence!” adds Mr Nair.

Mr B G Shenoy, Director, Global Centre for Education Excellence (GCEE), who along with the GCEE team, has done pioneering work on the excellence model for the multiple award winning GIIS Singapore schools, says, “The QMEA (Quality Management Excellence Award) is like a dream come true. In one year, the team was able to adopt initiatives, which strengthened academic process outcomes. Results and Trend Analyses conducted by the school were instrumental in convincing the MPC regarding the TQM (Total Quality Management) implementation at GIIS KL. GIIS KL is on a path of quality academic progress to benefit all stakeholders, especially the students.”

Winning the award is a feat, brilliantly executed, and it is a strong indicator of the commitment by GIIS to widen its radius and set sights on higher echelons as the best education provider in Asia and beyond.
