In-service Teacher Training

    Professional development is the enrichment training provided to the teachers over a period of time to build their competencies in all aspects of content and pedagogy. It cannot be quoted as a simply a time bound activity or serious events but a continuous process. Conventionally teacher training is divided into pre-services and in-service activities .Presently RMSA focuses on the in-service teacher training through SPLIT MODEL, which policy makers’ vision for change or conveyed to teachers. Hence the ultimate beneficiary of IN-SERVICE TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (ITPD) is the student through the teacher.

   Professional development to teachers is more than training/classes but beyond the class room practices. Teacher can develop his professional skills through personal reflection i.e. introspection, interactions with colleagues and mentoring with experts which could have a positive impact on teacher’s pedagogical skills and content knowledge. Keeping in view of the importance ITPD it is proposed to conduct in-service teacher trainings for subject handling teachers, teachers handling English medium classes HMs, Physical education teachers, Art/craft/music teachers and capacity building of teachers in conducting action research, providing guidance and counseling to the students. It is proposed to organize in-service training to the Headmasters and teachers of secondary schools. The following 8 types of training programmes were proposed-

  1. In-service training to the Head Masters of secondary Schools.
  2.  In-service teacher training for newly recruited/promoted teachers.
  3. In-service teacher training for teachers working in English medium schools.
