  • Experiencing the work and realities of a teacher is fundamental to being able to help a teacher build her capacities. Therefore, our programme will focus on giving you this experience.
  • This will require adequate preparation before you go to school, and significant support (from mentors and peers) through the months of teaching.
  • It will also need a process to distill your learning, about teaching-learning processes, about children, about teachers and the school, which you can carry forward in your role.

2. Supporting Teacher Professional Development programmes of DI (20% time)

  • As you becomes more familiar with the role of a teacher, you could begin learning on-the-job by apprenticing with some of our senior academic and block members, in conducting events such as a voluntary teacher forums or workshops.
After the completion of one year, you will continue to work at District Institutes and will continue to engage with the School and Community System.
