NEP-aligned Preschool Teacher Training Program (starting on Feb 27th, 2023)

Are you an aspiring or in-service pre-school teacher and/or a change-maker looking to do one or more of the following: 

  • Teach in a preschool classroom with play based methods aligned with the National Educational Policy (NEP) 2020?
  • Design affordable, play-based and child-centric preschool programs?
  • Create a holistic learning environment for the development of cognitive skills, foundational literacy (English), numeracy, spoken language skills, social-emotional skills, motor skills and creativity in children?
  • Increase learning engagement of children in a preschool classroom by evoking the joy of learning in them?
  • Make sure every child in the classroom progresses in learning of essential skills during the academic year?

Tejasvita Trust is pleased to announce a 7-week-long preschool teacher training program for aspiring teachers, change-makers and in-service preschool teachers. The objective of the program is to give the participants first-hand experience and the tools and resources they will need in order to build the skills to be effective teachers, focused on young children’s holistic learning needs. The program will center on equipping the participants to design and develop NEP-aligned joyful and learning-focused classroom environments for 3-6 year old children.

Tejasvita Trust has developed this 100-hour long training program based on 7 years of extensive work in preschool classrooms in low-income communities. During these years, we’ve partnered with a few Affordable Private Schools (APS) in Bangalore and experimented with a variety of play-based hands-on activities and research-based pedagogies. Our year-long model preschool programs in APSs have been proven to significantly increase children’s attention span, interest in learning, social-emotional skills, English spoken language skills, pre-skills needed for literacy and numeracy and decrease the learning gap in children.

Course deliverables 

During this course, the participants will receive the following:

  • Through discussions and reflections, understand the principles behind designing a play-based, child-centric classroom that instils learning engagement and effective learning in children
  • Through experiential learning, understand how to implement Tejasvita’s preschool classroom pedagogies that are aligned with the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for Foundational Stage (2022) developed in accordance with the vision of NEP 2020. 
  • A supportive community and a safe, growth-oriented environment for practicing the skills needed to implement these pedagogies. The training program is designed for a small group of 16 participants only. So, there will be a lot of individual attention given by the instructors.
  • Complete set of teacher manuals containing curriculum and lessons developed in-house by Tejasvita for child-centric preschool classrooms.

These cover a majority of the Learning Outcomes in the following domain areas identified in the NCF:

  • Domain areas
    • Physical development 
    • Social-Emotional Development
    • Cognitive Development
    • Literacy Development
    • Aesthetic and Cultural Development
