The Delhi Government would be sending 30 Principals from 54 Model Schools to the top International universities like Cambridge, Harvard, and Oxford in the coming months. For this global teachers’ training programme, the principals have already been selected.
With a budget of Rs 102 crore, such training programs are of utmost importance to raise the standards of our teachers. Many countries across the globe have adopted such education practices for skill enhancement of their teachers. Finland and South Korea, which claim to have adopted the best education practices, send their teachers for training to help improve their skills and teach children in a better way.
After this initial batch of teachers is trained, around 200 teachers will be sent to Cambridge, Harvard and to Singapore University. The trained teachers will then act as “mentor teachers”, who will be given the responsibility to train others. The main idea behind is to multiply knowledge and skills among as many teachers as possible.
Attempting to change the conventional way of learning, the Delhi government is trying to reduce syllabus and include more of skill-based courses. For this, the Government plans to hire excellent resource persons in the near future.
