We dream of a future where every child is learning with bold, inspired, and innovative educators who are creating dynamic, vibrant, and inclusive learning spaces so that every learner can unleash their true potential.
Teacher quality is a key determinant of student learning. Despite many teacher training institutes in India, India faces a severe shortage of teachers. Through our programs, we aim to solve three major challenges that cause lower teacher quality and quantity in India.
Teaching is not the preferred career for young people entering higher education. It is often a back-up career or a ‘safety net’. If even 60 percent of the teachers graduating from over 17000 teacher education institutions in India joined the profession, teacher shortage will not be a concern.
Teacher shortage isn't the only concern. Teacher training does not provide adequate classroom practice or training in necessary attitudes, behaviour, and habits that teachers need to succeed. This impacts the quality of teaching that takes place in Indian classrooms
The National Educational Policy (NEP) 2020 mentions 21st century skills at twelve places in the policy document. For teachers to make their students future-ready, pre-service training must adapt to build these skills in teachers.
HOW WE SOLVE IT
Our programs address the quality and volume of teachers by integrating the three components – skills, motivation, and social capital of pre-service teachers. With this integrated approach, we believe not only will the quality of teaching improve in the Indian schools, but the best and the brightest will join the profession.
