Activity 1.1.3 : For teachers to achieve its maximum potential, it must be harnessed and implemented teaching techniques properly. This requires that the teacher, possess a certain set of knowledge and skills to understand how and when various tools best support their curricula. Unfortunately, many teachers aren’t provided with proper training before joining teaching force or they are not provided with refresher courses. During the complex emergency in the areas, Government schools teacher’s professional growth equally affected. They were not in teaching practices for about a decade. The proposed project will provide training on CFS, life-skill based education and psychosocial support to the targeted Government school teachers. The training program will focus on development of teacher’s knowledge and skills to best use various tools for creating of CFS, inculcating life skill in students and providing effective psychosocial support services to the students.

TIJs cannot only double these efforts but also sustain these developments. The proposed project will initiate re-activation of TIJs in the 80 targeted schools (50% girls and 50% boys).

In addition, to strengthen the capacity of TIJ, CRDO will conduct training to the 80 targeted schools (50% girls and 50% boys).
