The NTTI teacher training team has recently conducted training in Sirdibas and Lupu in Gorkha regions.  

All the teachers were observed teaching in their classes before the training which helped the team to design the training package.  Following the training all the teachers have been observed and given personal feedback and a certificate of completion. 

 We received the following feedback from the teachers which took part:


“I am a recent high school graduate and began teaching Primary students 3 months ago. I feel very lucky to have received such comprehensive training at the beginning of my career. A lot of my queries and anxieties were addressed.  I know more about how I should behave with the children, how to give them instructions and, importantly, how to make them think. I am planning to use pair learning and group learning with small children in Nursery and Grade one. I think every new teacher should be able to take this training before starting real teaching to raise awareness of best teaching practices in their classroom.”



“I am a lower secondary teacher in Bhuddha Secondary School, Sirdibas and have been a teacher for nearly 20 years. I am glad to have been given the chance to receive such an integrated and practical teacher training session. Previously I gave lots of lectures to the children, however these new methods allow the children to think and discover in different ways. I feel more confident and passionate about my teaching after the training and I am excited to use the teaching practices in my classrooms.”



“I work as a Primary School Teacher in Sringa Himalaya Primary School, Jagat. I have been teaching for about 7 years and am passionate about education and a child friendly way of teaching. This training showed the variety of activities I can use in the classroom and I now know how to make plans to include various activities and group work to cover all kinds of learners and make my teaching more effective. The use of child development plans is particularly useful to me.”

The past few months have been busy ones for Nepal Teacher Training Innovations (NTTI). We began working in North Gorkha, one of the most remote and impoverished parts of Nepal where many villages are a three to six days walk from the nearest road and literacy rates for women in some communities are below 2%. So far we have trained 55 teachers and 35 of these teachers have been selected to work as Mentor Teachers who will provide on-going support to the teachers at their schools and serve as role models and sources of inspiration.

Teachers love our trainings!

Munni is a teacher at Shree Chandredaya Lower Secondary School in Manbu, Gorkha district, where she has been teaching for five years. Before participating in NTTI training, Munni says, her confidence was low and she never spoke up or felt able to express her ideas. This changed during the training, however, as NTTI created an environment in which she was encouraged to participate. The opportunity to receive feedback about her teaching from NTTI Master Trainers has helped her to feel less nervous.In fact, Munni's passion and commitment to teaching has resulted in her being selected as a Mentor Teacher. She is proving courageous as well as effective in her ability to provide feedback to her male colleauges, many who come from “higher” castes and have more education and teaching experience than she has.

Munni tell us: “The students say they like our teaching better since we went to NTTI training because we do more work in groups, play more games, and ask them their opinion. Now the children are coming to school more often.” “

Students say our training makes a big difference in what happens in the classroom. Dolma Lama from Nawayug School tells us:

Before there was a lot of cramming for the exam and teachers only taught us from the book. Now they ask us questions to make sure we understand and they ask us what we think.”

To date NTTI has trained 1300 teachers and is having an impact on more than 78,000 students from 11 districts across the country!
