Teacher Training



Teacher Training    


We all remember the teachers who inspired us and made sure we succeeded in our studies. They were responsible for sparking a lifelong interest and setting us on a particular road through life. Teachers, in the field of education do this every day.


During early education, the students tend to determine their aims in life and their future plans, in consultation with their teachers. The key purpose of the teacher is to create effective and stimulating opportunities for learning through high quality teaching that enables the development and progress of all her/his learners. A teacher should consider it his/her duty to educate his/her students and should feel responsible for it. A teacher should be aware that his/her students have been entrusted to him/her and the teacher should avoid any breach of the trust that the parents and society have shown in them. Therefore, a good and visionary teacher can play a prominent role in making the future of the students.


Even though often less acknowledged, the importance of a good teacher is enormous. They play a vital role in the overall development of the students. Not only are they responsible for imparting academic knowledge, but are also responsible for inculcating the right values and principles to their students. The importance of teachers is especially enormous during the formative years of children when they first join school. Therefore it is very important to have professionally qualified teachers to ensure the right development of students.


Teachers are often faced with the challenge of instructing students at various levels of academic progress. Knowing how to connect with all students regardless of their aptitude level is critical to ensuring that the educational material is effectively reaching each student, on each level.


Ongoing teacher training can be a vital tool in ensuring the success of a teacher as an effective facilitator and the student as a better involved learner.
