The Nursery and Primary Teacher Training course by Study Hall Educational Foundation strives to create able, caring and compassionate Pre primary teachers for the growing needs of children of the 21st century. The training programme aims to train trainee teachers in the classrooms. It follows the apprenticeship model. Teachers spend at least three hours every day in the classroom from the very first day. The course strikes a balance between theory and practice. Learning is enriched as the trainee teachers acquire teaching skills by being with children and watching experienced teachers at work. During the training the trainee teachers are given ample opportunity to observe and understand the young learners along with theory classes. They attend regular seminars and workshops conducted by experts in educational field.They get ample opportunity to teach in classrooms. Their teachings are recorded and viewed by them which helps in metacognition . They document all the practical learning in a portfolio.
Overall, it as an enriching training programme which gives an edge as the future teachers are trained in classroom environments with the children, by the teachers .
