Holistic Talent Profile (HTP) A Student Empowerment Model
The aim of the study is to help students of Grade X to look beyond marks while choosing the appropriate stream and subjects. The sample of 431 grade X students were selected from an Urban and Rural Trust run school as part of the CSR project of a Pharmaceutical Company. Students were administered the interest, aptitude and personality tests (HTP) and the findings of the Holistic Talent Profile was discussed with parents in the group session that was followed by one-to-one feedback to parents and the student. To make this project impactful, 72 teachers underwent intensive training to enhance their teaching techniques, class room management and soft skills; so that they could guide and support the students to maximize their performance. The findings indicate positive qualitative and quantitative improvement in students’ performance, teachers approach and parental attitude. Teachers and parents became more empathic and supportive towards students. Students responded positively to the change and it was evident in their rigour and focus.
