NEW DELHI: Government school teachers will have to undergo a training programme at National Institute of Education in Singapore as per a new plan chalked out by the Education Department, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said today.

"For the next two years, our team at the Education Department have chalked out a well-thought out plan which is based on two questions: how to teach and what to teach," the minister, who also holds the education portfolio, wrote in a letter to teachers.

"We should get inspired from several experiments and techniques that were carried out across the world but beware, we shouldn't get affected by them. Because if we get affected, then we will try to copy it with eyes closed.

"To learn more from these techniques, you will have to undergo a training programme at Singapore's famous National Institute of Education. I will also try that you get a taste of some of the international schools based in Germany and Finland," he added.

As part of its teachers training initiative, the Delhi government has also decided to send 90 principals of the government-run schools to the Cambridge University in the United Kingdom for a leadership training exercise.

Delhi government has allocated Rs 102 crore for international training of principals and teachers in the budget for the current financial year.
