EFL University -Skill Development Centre: Training the Teachers for the Nation

Introduction

The EFL University- Skill Development Centre: Training the Teachers for the Nation is an outreach programme of the university. The university provides academic support to teachers of English at the high school and college levels in rural and backward regions of the country through this programme. The programme has emerged in 2017 as a result of the merger of two prominent schemes, namely, the District Centre Scheme (DCS) and the English Language Teaching Institutes Support Scheme (ELTISS). The merger was implemented to make the training cost effective, efficient and more relevant to the growing needs of teachers of English. It is also hoped that this training would ultimately have a cascade effect, whereby the trained teachers act as master trainers for others.


SDC –TTN will achieve these objectives by

• preparing master trainers to train other teachers with partnership with state governments
• conducting long-term and short-term courses for teachers of English
• supporting and empowering teachers in rural areas by providing them with materials
