Whether students learn online or offline in both ways it’s the teachers who are going to impart knowledge and train students with new skills. Teachers are the pillars of the education system and important stakeholders too. That is why they need to be provided with the right pieces of equipment, training and support to do their teaching and other tasks with efficiency to give the best result. However, providing equipment, training and support to every faculty member of the school institutes is not an easy task. But as institutes are upgrading themselves with changing times and using technologies like LMS and ERP for schools, the task of faculty management is becoming easier.
In the article. We are going to discuss how school ERP systems are helping schools and institutes in teacher management. And why every school and institute should use ERP now.
Teachers’ Data And Details: To have information and some personal details about your faculty members is necessary for every school. Before the use of ERP, the schools and institutes used to maintain teachers’ data manually in which they would write about their personal information, previous occupation and other employment-related information. Maintaining these files required time and concentration so that no mistakes were made, this costs the institute. However, once the schools install ERP they don’t have to give hours in this task, they can type the details in minutes, there will be separate digital files made for each teacher, not only this ERP also creates their salary account too.
Easy Recruitment Procedure: With the expansion of schools and the increase in the number of students, schools also need to expand their teacher count too; for that, they need to recruit new teachers. The recruitment procedure is one of the most crucial tasks, which needs to be done with transparency and utmost care. ERP for schools can help in the recruitment process through the e-recruitment procedure, where the institute can create an online application and resume submission page on which candidates need to apply. After that, it will shortlist the right candidates as per the mentioned criteria, making the recruitment procedure swift and easy.
Maintains Financial Accounts: Teachers are the employees of the schools who work on a salary basis and are also provided with other financial benefits too. Schools have to maintain accounts of all these financial transactions; before ERP the manual account books were kept, whose maintenance was time-consuming and often prone to mistakes. With the use of ERP, schools can maintain salary accounts, pension accounts, bonus transactions and other accounts of the teachers easily on their online system. This system maintains and records every transaction with ease, and every month when the salary is credited to the teachers’ account it will be shown in their books. Teachers can also view their accounts to get details regarding the salary payments or any deductions etc. made, maintaining transparency between faculty and institute.
Maintain Teachers’ Attendance: Maintaining teachers’ attendance records is as important as students’ attendance. Just as teachers use attendance records of the students to judge their academic progress and consistency in learning, teachers’ attendance records are a performance indicator of teachers. Using the biometric system and ERP software, schools can keep records of teachers’ entry and exit times, half-days and leave etc. and using this data they can judge the consistency of teachers. It also helps in the calculation of accurate salary, based on the leaves and half-days taken by the teachers.
Keeps The Data Secure: The information recorded manually in the files is prone to threats like damage with time, manipulation and duplication. By using an ERP system to maintain records and store information on the cloud-secured system, schools safeguard the sensitive and crucial data related to staff and students too.
Helps In Teachers’ Training: With changing times and advancements occurring in the education field, it is required the veteran as well as new teachers to develop their technical skills, and for that, they need to be trained. With the installation of ERP in schools teachers can become apt at using various kinds of technologies, which they can use to teach students and develop their technical skills.
