The District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) has proposed a training programme for teachers taking English medium classes in government high schools, in the district.

The training programme would be organised with the funding of the State Council Educational Research and Training (SCERT) funding. SCERT functions as the academic wing of the school education department in formulating and implementing the government programmes in school education.

The training aims at developing curricula and instruction materials for primary, secondary and other forms of school education.

In 2012-13, the State government had announced English-medium sections for classes between I and VI in government schools in 320 Blocks across the State in 2012-13. 

As part of the announcement, 85 schools in 16 blocks were provided with English medium sections. The facility would be extended to all the 165 government higher secondary schools in the district from 2014, said N Jamal Nazar, principal District Institute of Education and Training Kumulur.

In a study conducted among 15 school teachers, the DIET faculty had found that teachers who handled English medium classes were struggling to cope with the language.  Based on the findings of the study, the DIET authorities held discussions with the teachers and suggested that they undergo a special training to get acquainted with the language.

 “Classes would be held in a way to equip the teachers to feel comfortable in English language, which in turn would benefit the students. Once the schools reopen after the quarterly vacation, the training classes would commence. A feasible date would be finalised after consultation with the Chief Educational Officer,” Nazar said.
