Chhattisgarh's Bastar District Initiates Innovative English Learning Program For Teachers

Program to be executed in collaboration with Square Panda India

In an effort to strengthen the education ecosystem and create a more literate India in line with the objectives of National Education Policy 2020 and the vision of the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh Bhupesh Baghel, Chhattisgarh's Bastar district has initiated a first-of-its-kind teacher training program with a sharp focus on English Language Proficiency training. The program commenced in the third week of July and aims to train 750 teachers.

It is targeted towards improving the teacher's language skills, including grammar, for academic, personal, and professional purposes, and develop competence and confidence in the usage of English in and beyond the classroom.

Structured to deliver instruction in the most engaging way possible, the English Language Proficiency Program will take teachers through the entire learning cycle — active experimentation, reflection, conceptualisation, application. 

The programme modules include:

  • l Enhancing Language Skills
  • l Understanding Grammar
  • l Common Errors in the English Language
  • l Communicative Approach
  • l Empowering Professional Development - Writing Skills
  • l Reading and Comprehension Skills

The framework and modules have been designed by analysing the needs of the teachers and provides an opportunity to improve Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing skills by participating in multiple theme-based tasks and activities. 

The program’s objectives resonate with the objectives of NEP 2020, which highlights the need to up-skill educators, making them future-ready, equipping them with technical know-how and language acquisition skills to promote lifelong learning. It will be implemented and executed by Square Panda India, an edtech innovator whose data-driven pedagogy is designed towards creating impact at a large scale while providing measurable learning outcomes.
