In collaboration with the Fourth Wave Foundation, TTF is conducting a training programme on Inclusive Education for 1200 teachers, Anganwadi workers, Village Resource Workers (VRWs) and Mandal Resource Workers (MRWs).
TTF has so far trained 165 Block Inclusive Education Resource Trainers (BIERTs) from 5 districts, and VRWs & MRWs from 2 districts in the first phase of the programme.
The training
focuses on Understanding Disabilities, Multiple Intelligences for Inclusive Classrooms and Assessment Procedure for Children with Special Needs.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the Lesson Plan contest that we ran for APS schools in Mumbai. There were more than 100 fantastic submissions! Congratulations to the winners whose Lesson Plans were selected after review by senior TTF Facilitators.
Geetha Murali, Principal of KCA International School says, 'Gratitude is just a word of expression but TTF deserves all the credit for bringing our team to this great achievement. During the pandemic taking online classes would have been a hurdle without the help of TTF. Your timely assistance and motivation brought confidence in the team to face the challenges and overcome the situation. These awards are like the cherry on the cake."

As part of United Way of Bengaluru's CSR initiative, volunteers from the organisation and TTF painted the walls of the Govt Higher Primary School in Singapura, Bangalore. 

TTF's flagship programme for school leaders-HeadLAMP (Heads' Leadership and Management Programme) spanning 6 modules across 6 months culminated with a Capstone Project presentation on 25th November 2022.

Participants were required to undertake a small initiative in their schools to demonstrate their growing mastery of ideas and themes discussed during the intensive course
. The outcomes and learnings were shared with others of the HeadLAMP batch. The participants displayed their digital skills by making high-quality presentations using graphs, videos and other visuals effectively.

Some of the projects presented were:

1. The Choice Architect- Helping teachers work with efficiency 

2. Increasing Student Talk Time in the Classroom

3. Addressing the challenges faced by early years teachers in settling learners into physical school after the pandemic years

Schools with imagination don’t rest on their past laurels, but plan for the future. Deccan International School has embarked on a 2 year journey, DIS Vision 2040, to chart out a blueprint for the future and establish a whole new school culture of readiness to learn. TTF is helping the school achieve this through providing the whole teaching community weekly opportunities for open reflective conversations, brainstorming, ideating, action-planning and reviewing.

TTF conducted a Training of Trainers for facilitators of the Civic Learning Team of Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship & Democracy in October 2022. The 2.5 day training focused on the principles of adult facilitation and different strategies for need assessment and participant engagement. The purpose of this training is to enhance the skills and competencies of this team to equip them to train school teachers and other adults in the education space as part of their Active Citizenship programme.

Over 250 teachers from 5 schools/colleges participated in various programmes offered by TTF in the last quarter. These include Whole School Quality Circle Time, Social & Emotional Learning, Classroom Management and Project Based Learning, among others.

Prajayatna, a respected NGO, working to improve the quality of education in public schools in Karnataka and UP, approached TTF to support their team members to deepen their understanding of Social-emotional Learning and apply ISELF in their work. TTF will build capacity of their team members who in turn will support the Government School teachers and Anganwadis in Karnataka, Jharkhand and UP.

TTF, in collaboration with CBM, is implementing a pilot project with 50 Government School teachers from Doddaballapur - Bangalore Rural District, Karnataka. The aim of the project is to equip teachers to use Inclusive - ISELF Curriculum consisting of 50 Quality Circle Time Lesson Plans in their classrooms to improve quality of teacher-student interaction; make Classroom environments gentler, happier and more inclusive; enhance positive attitudes towards self, peers and community.
