    Azim Premji Foundation motivates to immerse from own experience to appreciate continuous and experiential learning process. Since beginning of my professional journey, I have been given challenging opportunities to work with teachers and develop understanding of education, school and society. Azim Premji Foundation work culture has also influenced my personal growth immensely and encouraged me to look deeper in every aspect of education to contribute constructively for betterment.

    The work at school, with children and teachers, the many observations of classroom teaching, workshop sessions, the occasional interactions with education officials, the many hours of pouring over documents and books, discussions, meetings, and the struggle of living by yourself – the associate programme is a bag of myriad experiences worth carrying along.

    Associate Batch 2015

    The foundation is not just a career option, it is one of the fewest organization which allows you to grow not only as a professional but also as an individual. The journey has been amazing, and I take pride to be associated with such a profession and able to contribute for such noble cause.

    Foundation gives ample opportunities to explore Education, primarily the public education system and its teachers, being utterly integral to the system. This happens through field experiences, internal capacity enhancement workshops and formal or informal discussions. The values, vision and work culture enable a conducive environment of learning to grow and evolve with optimism towards change while being critically reflective and thus contributing to teacher professional development.

  • Kalpana Bisht 
    Associate Batch 2018

    The year in the foundation has been a fertile ground to test what we have read and learnt as theory in our classrooms. It gives ample opportunities to explore, think and reflect on not only education but each and every aspect that we see in the society.

    The journey of associate program gave me a good exposure to the kind of efforts being made in different context for improving the quality of education in our country.
