TeacherTraining@17000ft is our program that brings new and relevant pedagogy to the school system through a system of continuous teacher training and capacity building workshops, conducted centrally and direct at the remote school. The IHR region has hundreds of tiny hamlets, isolated and sparsely populated, many with just a handful of school age children. Each of these schools has dedicated teachers who spend months away from their own homes and families, coming from other distant villages to teach. The teachers are the backbone of any school and upskilling of the teachers is a continuous process
Our teacher training programs are run in collaboration with the local administration and are geared towards capacity building of DIET (District Institute of Education and Trainings), along with special emphasis on regular, direct in-school training of teachers. Our training programs are conducted in the winter months of Dec to Feb when all schools are shut due to the severe cold, and are followed up with regular, in-school workshops.
