COIMBATORE: Around 1,083 government school headmasters across the State will undergo training organised by the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) from Tuesday to next Saturday.
Under the Central government’s RMSA scheme, several training programmes are organised every year for teachers and headmasters. This year, the five-day training is being held for newly appointed headmasters in government schools in Tamil Nadu. A School Leadership Development Programme is planned for 1,083 headmasters at various training centres across the State.
Training will focus on handling management-related problems, improving the performance of students and particularly improving the pass percentage of government school students in public exams, said additional project coordinator of RMSA Muthu Manickam.
The training sessions will be handled by a tutor facilitator team. The team comprises 61 experienced headmasters and 29 faculty members from the District Institute of Education and Training (DIET).
This year, there are changes in the location of training centres. Since the headcount from Nilgiris district is low, it has been clubbed with Coimbatore. The 24 headmasters will attend the session at Vivekalaya Matriculation Higher Secondary School at Trichy Road.
Similarly, Kanyakumari has been clubbed with Tirunelveli district. Thirty one centres have been set up across the State.
