1200 teachers in government-run schools in Telangana have been provided training by the British Council. The three-week training programme on core skills and school leadership development concluded last week.
200 state government schools under control of the director of school education were said to have chosen for the programme. A total of 1,000 teachers underwent the core skills training in critical thinking and problem solving, including a one-day introduction to core skills for teachers.
As many as 200 head teachers underwent the school leadership development programme in four modules — building leadership capacity, creating and communicating a vision, leading and managing change, building and sustaining effective teams.
