The NCFTE (2009) has underlined the need for urgent and comprehensive reform in teacher education
THERE IS A NEED TO BRING GREATER CONVERGENCE BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION AND CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHERS AT ALL STAGES OF SCHOOLING IN TERMS OF LEVELS, DURATION AND STRUCTURE. IT ALSO ELABORATES THE CONTENT, CONCERNS AND VISION FOR TEACHER EDUCATION.
This National Goal cannot be realized unless the teachers in our schools take up this responsibility on their shoulders. This can happen only when we enable our teachers in terms of capacity, skills, holistic knowledge, motivation, self-esteem and train them to be more participatory and interactive.
Teacher capacity building is critical for equipping teachers with all the requisite skills, which will ensure successful teaching and learning. In collaboration with Imagine Education (UK), MBD DISHA takes up the initiative of teacher training in India. This programme is meant to equip teachers in content and pedagogical competence and their implications to classroom practices. Our well-structured and methodical in-service training for teachers help them recognize and remove any gaps in the knowledge of subject content and incorporate a constructive approach to the teaching learning process.
