Your 1st year at the Foundation

The purpose of Associate program is to develop Associates into Teacher Educators. The one-year program will broadly consist of two components:

  1. Teaching in a Govt. school (80% time)
  • Experiencing the work and realities of a teacher is fundamental to being able to help a teacher build her capacities. Therefore, our program will focus on giving Associates this experience.
  • This will require adequate preparation before the Associate goes to school, and significant support (from mentors and peers) through the months of teaching.
  • It will also need a process to distill learning, about teaching-learning, about children, about teachers and the school, which the Associate can carry forward in his/her role.
  1. Supporting Teacher Professional Development programs of DI (20% time)
  • As the Associate becomes more familiar with the role of a teacher, s/he 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, Associates will be posted at our District Institutes and will continue to engage with School and Community System.
