4.      TRAINING OBJECTIVES:

 

Education, being a dynamic process, needs a grand vision to encompass its reach and depth.  The effect of education has far reaching consequences for the individual as well as for the society. Hence, the teacher, the most important cog in the wheel of the education system, has to have a deep understanding of the process of education and is always ready to keep pace with the changes and developments taking place in the world of education.  In the realm of education, the teacher with professional outlook and with the latest knowledge and skills in his field is a blessing. However, such teachers are rare. It is in-service-education that can help the teacher to develop in to a professional by equipping with requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes to face the challenges of the profession of teaching and contribute for the welfare of the state.  Pre-service education simply does the ground work for certification, where as in-service education needs to do the work of fully preparing the teacher to meet the challenges of the dynamic world, which warrants the teacher to learn continually to update himself. Training courses offer opportunities to the teacher to interact with experts and share his experiences with his fellow-teachers.  The Programme of Action 1992 and National Curriculum Framework 2005 have also rightly focused on the need for professional training of teachers for continuous quality improvement.  Promotional and financial incentives are also linked with in-service education.  In-service education is recognized as a potent tool by the KVS to enable the teacher to meet his career needs and societal obligations. The training programme for teachers would therefore, focus on developing in the teacher -

a. Competencies to handle the needs of the students and that of the society

b. Commitment to serve his learners and his profession and to pursue excellence in education

c. Positive attitude towards life and faith in capacity of the child

d. Readiness to perform in the classroom in particular and in school in general effectively

What is true for the teacher is also true for other educational personnel. The officers dealing with academics need regular support to address the issues such as changing requirements in content, pedagogy and also the training of teachers and training of trainers. The other personnel – the non-teaching office staff - serving the KVS also need training and re-training at regular intervals to upscale their knowledge and skills and to foster a positive attitude to deal with various administrative decisions.

 

5.      TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

 

A school is an important instrument of social engineering and a training ground for the students who will hold the reins of the country in future.  Such a significant segment of the society cannot be left to its fate to languish in the hands of outdated educators and therefore the teachers must be properly trained to handle this human resource to develop a value based productive citizenry.

Every teacher should be basically an ardent learner.  In the course of his teaching, the teacher acquires educational experience, which he analyses and generalizes to improve his own pedagogical procedures.

Through, self-education his personality as a teacher is transformed into an effective and efficient teacher.  The essence of In-service education of teachers is thus to (I) develop in him the requisite competencies and (ii) to improve the  commitment level of the teacher so that his personality as a teacher is enriched and he is in a position to make his contributions felt in the society and in the academic world.
