Dear Friend,

This year marked the completion of 10 years of our Necessary Teacher Training (NeTT) Programme. With the support of patrons like you and others, HPPI has been able to create more than 10,000 quality teachers during this period. The programme is currently running successfully in five states of the country across 15 Government Elementary Teachers Training Institutes (GETTIs) and District Institute for Education and Training (DIET). The programme has been highly effective in improving the learning outcomes of the children in schools. The student-teachers are trained to use creative, varied and engaging methods to ensure the holistic development of children. We interviewed some of the alumni of the program this year. See what the teachers of tomorrow have to say in the pictures below. Join us in multiplying this happiness by sharing the success of these teachers with your friends and family.

Thirty-nine-year-old Ajay teaches Grade 1 and 2 at the Shaskiya Prathamik Madhyamik Vidyalaya, Khandwa B.B in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. After he completed his D.Ed. (Diploma in Education) curriculum in 2015 from District Institute of Education and Training District (DIET) Ujjain, he joined as a teacher in the school he currently teaches at in place of his father who had passed away. He says, “I became a teacher by chance. But today, I teach because I want to give my students a solid foundation of learning in their initial years of education.”

Ajay was a student of the first batch (2013-15) of the Necessary Teacher Training (NeTT) programme in Madhya Pradesh. As part of the two-year programme Ajay had gone on a national travel tour to Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu for almost a month. Talking about his experience in a place where communicating to the locals was also a challenge due to linguistic barriers, Ajay says, “That trip prepared me to face any obstacle. Even though we did not speak a common language, we went to the villages and met the local people. On our way back we had an experience of a lifetime. The train had a two-minute stop but due to the rush, half of us couldn’t get on the train. Without thinking we all pulled the chain on the train and the train came to a halt. Soon after the officials arrived and we stood there as a team. Our team leader at the time told us we had nothing to be afraid of neither did we have to lie. It was a very reassuring feeling. I abide by it even today and teach my students the same: When faced with any obstacle, we should never fear. We should fight it with all our honesty.”

 

The classroom where Ajay teaches has numbers painted in colours on the floor, there are calendars and alphabets painted on the walls. The room was surrounded by knowledge and the children had the brightest smiles, looking forward to their lessons.

As their teacher for all the subjects taught in class, Ajay says, “It is not always that they want to study from the books. I have to keep them attentive and at the same time provide holistic education. So, I teach them things they can use in their day-to-day life. For instance, if they go to a shop and buy something, they should be able to use their skills and count the change and check for the right prices etc. And because of this, more so than before, I have to continue to keep learning so that I can keep them up-to-date.”

Ajay is a graduate of the NeTT Programme which believes in shaping a kind of teacher that provides quality education through the use of activities, teaching-learning material or storytelling. Ajay does not only teach the students academics but also ensures that the students, from a young age, are groomed properly and get into a habit to cut their nails, take daily bath, water the plants around the school etc. He adds, “We share a story every day that speaks about something relevant. Recently we talked about how we should not litter and pick up all the plastic trash around because a cow may eat the plastic which will be harmful for the cow as well as for us when we drink that cow’s milk. These are big issues but we have to try and make it relevant to their life.”

Ajay hopes he can stand by the principles his father stood by and teach his students to give importance to being disciplined and punctual.

In the last decade the Government has not been able to provide quality education. Although money has been spent in education to achieve  higher enrolment the result has yet not been able to reach the mark because of various factors like lack of incentive, improper management and under qualified teachers.If our youngsters fail to excel in their studies, then the whole nation may fail in producing the much-needed human capital to meet the challenges ahead.

 

So through the Necessary Teacher Training Programme (NeTT)Campaign and Humana People to People India we aim to train 100 Primary School Teachers in State run Teacher Training Institutes. The objective is to ensure better learning outcomes in the cities which are the most effected with poor quality of education. For example,Uttar Pradesh is the most populated state in India yet has the lowest Human development Index because the quality of education which is one of the most important factors, is very poor.

The training of 100 teachers through this campaign will help in the development of more than 50,000 students in 100 schools across Gorakhpur. These students will then be able to break through this vicious cycle of poverty and lead a stable and content life. Teachers trained under this Programme will be a catalyst for change not only in school but also in their communities. 

Here is a story about a graduate from the NeTT Programme who has now been inspiring many others like him:

 

Experience, the best teacher

 As we enter Deen Dayal Senior Secondary School in Sonipat, Haryana, the far end of the school boundary hosts an inquisitive and animated class of young students surrounding a bright, young teacher who matches their excitement with every question he answers.

In a tree shade, 21-year-old Pankaj is explaining to his students the benefits and crucial need of planting more trees.The coolness of the shade is palpable, the fruits weighing the tree are tangible, and the birds that call the tree home are clearly visible. The students, under Pankaj are learning more and more everyday through experience.

 

“Most of my learning under the NeTT Programme at the DIET took place through experience .Today,I’m convinced, that there’s no better teacher than experience,” says Pankaj with conviction and a smile.

A former student at DIET Sonipat, Pankaj graduated from the institution in 2014 after being trained under Humana People to People India’s two year Necessary Teacher Training Programme(NeTT).

 

“As a part of the programme all of us participated in month long National Travel wherein we travelled to different parts of the country. For many of my classmates, it was the first time they had stepped out of the state boundary. Many of us experienced train travel for the first time. We may not remember most of what we studied in class but what we experienced during that travel will remain with us for the rest of our lives,” he says.  

The school environment and the school management’s maturity to improvise in face of mounting educational challenges plays a key role in the ability of teachers such as Pankaj to create a positive change inside and outside the classroom. He has been fortunate enough to receive the sane at his school.

 

"Since he joined our school, we could see that Pankaj possesses an unmatched passion to teach and  a set of unique skills that can have a long-term impact, not only on students he teaches but also on the culture of knowledge transaction,”says Sanjay, the School Manager.

“Beyond making knowledge generation exciting for students, Pankaj’s presence in the school has also positively influenced how other teachers perceive teaching as a discipline.”

While the clamorous enthusiasm of students surrounding him itself is an affirmation of the joy his students experience in attending school regularly, the data reflecting improvement in grades further consolidates the effectiveness of practicing student-cantered teaching methods.

 

“Primary school students are very impressionable and quick at grasping concepts. At the upper end of the grades they can also extend their understanding of concepts to its logical end. While I’ve learnt a lot during the two years of my teaching experience, I owe a lot to the previous two years o training under NeTT Programme,” admits Pankaj.

It was the NeTT training that made me receptive to the needs of young students, and the responsibility of a teacher to deliver.”

And Pankaj- along with several other teachers like him trained under the NeTT Programme- continues to impart lessons and dispensing his services as a teacher, while leaving indelible impressions on the young minds of his students. Impressions rendered permanent, through experience.
