St. Andrew Centre for Human Resource Development and Counselling
In keeping with its values, ISSU has served and trained thousands of women
and men in Christian education and nurture since 1876. In 1926 the
St Andrew Centre for Teacher Training was established in Coonoor to
further the training of teachers. Every summer for almost 100 years
St. Andrew has drawn both students from all over India and international
students as well.
Since 1990 the number and scope of the courses have grown to
include pastoral care and counselling, servant-leadership, preaching,
youth ministry, theology, ethics; to name a few.
Gifted and experienced faculty from India and abroad contribute to the
diversity and richness of the courses as part of continuing education for
students, lay leaders, and clergy.
St. Andrew Centre offers continuing education seminars/workshops, courses at seminaries and colleges for students and faculty. St. Andrew Centre has hosted three travel courses of Princeton Theological Seminary and sent teams for teaching to Myanmar and Sri Lanka. It also offered a Post Graduate recognized course in Psychological Counselling among many other relevant seminars and courses.
Through its various training programs, St. Andrew Centre seeks to empower leaders to be transformational in the diverse work of the church in the world to strengthen her life and work and enhance the knowledge and skills of the laity, clergy, and students.
"The main focus is on empowering the church through its teachers and thus the Creative Teaching for Transformation seminars are offered in India and beyond." - Dr. Ajit A. Prasadam
