DIMAPUR — With an aim to build internal capacity for monitoring the quality of teacher-student interactions in the classroom, a 10-day training of master trainers (Trainers of Teachers) for implementation of Teach Tool under the Nagaland Education Project-The Lighthouse (NECTAR), is being conducted at Mount Tabor Retreat Centre in Kohima.

The training programme which commenced on September 13 will conclude on the 23rd.

The Teach Tool is a standardised classroom observation tool designed by the World Bank to gain a comprehensive understanding of current teaching practices and quality of education inside classrooms and Nagaland is the second state after Andhra Pradesh to implement it in the country, informed an update received on Friday.

It’s been implemented to improve the quality of education, teaching practices, capacity building, and learning environment in government schools across the state, it added.

Maintaining that the findings from the Teach Tool will potentially strengthen future Teacher Professional Development (TPD) practices, the update said around 400-500 observers from all the 16 districts will be trained to use the tool and that they will mentor other teachers in the coming years.

As many as 37 ToTs attached to various educational block resource centres within Samagra Shiksha; three officials from the Nagaland Core Team comprising officials from DoSE and SCERT; and three from the NECTAR team have qualified and been certified, it said.

Speaking at the valedictory programme on Friday, Commissioner and Secretary, School Education and SCERT, Kevileno Angami congratulated the trainees and challenged them to create effective and safe learning spaces for children.

Principal Director of DoSE and Director of NECTAR project, Thavaseelan K also spoke at the programme.
