Training of Para teachers- Shiksha Mitra and Acharya Ji
These shiksha Mitras and Acharyaji's have been selected by the village education committee. As they were not having prior training in pedagogy (because they have not been provided with two-year BTC training), a comprehensive training programme has been designed for them. This training package has been prepared with the help of experts from Rajasthan Shiksha Karmi Board, subject matter specialists, practicing teachers, NGO activists and members of State Resource Group. The duration of this comprehensive training programmes was one month. The package lays stress on basic concepts of Language, Mathematics and EVS. It also aims at developing competence, commitment and perceptions of the needed performance standards in the trainees. The training programmes for selected Shiksha Mitra/Acharya Ji have been organized at district level under the supervision and control of DIETs. Most of these programmes were very effective due to holistic approach followed and practical activities introduced as integral part of the sessions.
