PINTAR Consultancy Service


PINTAR Consultancy Service (PCS) is an end-to-end service delivery provided by PINTAR Foundation to support Companies that wish to participate in PINTAR, but are limited by capacity and resources

The model involves the provision of total consultancy and implementation services from Pre-Adoption stage to Implementation and Graduation; and finally, Post Adoption Stage (Alumni Programme).

The service involves a preliminary assessment of the potential school through a School Needs Analysis to identify the school's needs in order to strategize and plan the right programmes that will have most benefit and impact.

Upon school adoption and over the next three years, the programmes and activities are implemented and PINTAR Foundation conducts regular monitoring and evaluation on the progress of the activities conducted and share the updates with the company on a quarterly or half-yearly basis, depending on the agreement.

PINTAR will also assist to graduate the school after the three year adoption period and introduce the school to PINTAR's Alumni Programme.
