The National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT) has been directed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to prepare a specific curriculum to train Afghan school teachers on student- friendly methods of teaching to strengthen the education system in Afghanistan. 'Teachers coming from Afghanistan will be here for two years and will be imparted with the modern and student-friendly methods of teaching,' said a senior HRD Ministry official. 'At the end of the training, teachers will be awarded diploma certificates. They will be given training at the Regional Institutes of Education under the NCERT,' added official. Education system in Afghanistan has badly been affected due to attacks by Taliban in recent years.
The teachers are coming as a follow-up to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between both the countries in collaboration on several areas, including education.
