We believe all children deserve a quality education. We envision a future where bold, innovative, and motivated teachers are creating dynamic, vibrant, and inclusive learning spaces so that every child can unleash their true potential.
THE TEACHING CRISIS
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 teacher shortage in India.
Teaching not a preferred
Teaching is not the preferred career for young people entering higher education. It is often a back-up career or a ‘safety net’
Inadequate teaching practice during training
Teacher training does not provide adequate classroom practice or training in necessary attitudes, behaviour, and habits that teachers need to succeed.
