Teacher Training Programme, Phase 2

Objectives

Phase I then proceeded to Phase II in liaison with special schools officials (Karachi), with the same set of Master Trainers. The objective of this programme was to take a holistic approach to Character Development and Behaviour Management for Children with Special Needs. This technique introduces latest concepts and research findings to teachers and discusses strategies for behaviour modification and introduces proven tools, like charts and Individual Behaviour Plans, for teachers to use in their classrooms.

Impact

For this reason, Family Education Services (FESF) was contacted for curriculum development of the training. Keeping in mind the learning from Phase 1, focus was kept to run a complete two-day training instead on a 1-day workshop for better retention of the teachers. The trainings were conducted within a duration of two month i.e. April – June 2012.
