DIMAPUR — The Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) and the Nagaland State AIDS Control Society (NSACS) will conduct a one-day training programme for Kohima and Tseminyu teachers as part of the Adolescence Education Programme (AEP).

The event will be held on September 12 from 9:30 am to 2:45 pm at the conference hall of the Red Cross Society, Kohima.

According to a DIPR report, a similar programme will be held online for teachers in the districts of Mokokchung, Tuensang, Mon, Phek, Wokha, Zunheboto, Dimapur, Chümoukedima, Niuland, Kiphire, Longleng, Peren, Noklak, and Shamator on September 15 from 10 am to 12:30 pm.

The AEP is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Education, the Department of School Education and Literacy, and the National AIDS Control Organisation to equip every adolescent (child aged 10 to 19 years) with scientific information, knowledge, and life skills to protect themselves from HIV infection and manage reproductive and sexual health concerns.

AEP encompasses all of the country’s secondary and higher secondary schools.

In Nagaland, the NSACS has been conducting training programmes for teachers under AEP since 2010 with the objective of providing accurate age-appropriate life skills-based adolescent education in a sustained manner in schools and providing structured education to enhance the knowledge and skills of adolescents to deal with the challenges of life.

The training will cover topics such as HIV/AIDS and STIs, HIV and AIDS (P&C), Act 2017, growing up and adolescent reproductive sexual health, and mental health and substance abuse.

All the heads of the registered institutions under Kohima and Tseminyu districts have been requested to take note of the importance of this training and depute one teacher to attend the meeting. Travel allowances will be paid to them in accordance with NSACS norms. 

It also notified all registered institution heads in the districts of Mokokchung, Tuensang, Mon, Phek, Wokha, Zunheboto, Dimapur, Chümoukedima, Niuland, Kiphire, Longleng, Peren, Noklak, and Shamator to delegate one teacher to attend the online meeting.

The registration link for the training programme will be shared later in the district WhatsApp groups and school email addresses.

The attendance of teachers from all the registered schools is compulsory and will be monitored.
