Teachers of government schools to be made proficient in English speaking

Lucknow: In an effort to strengthen English education in Uttar Pradesh, the Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education Department has decided to provide English speaking training to teachers of government colleges. This training will be given online to the teachers.

The move will benefit 30,000 teachers and over one crore students teaching in UP secondary schools from class IX to XII. The course for this online training has been developed by the Institute of English Language Teaching (ELTI), Prayagraj, which is a unit of the UP State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT).

According to an IANS report, the course has been designed to teach listening, understanding and speaking English. The online course consists of 132 modules which are of 10-10 minutes duration. The modules are interactive and there will be an assessment at the end of each course module.

Director of Secondary Education Sarita Tiwari has asked the Inspectors of District Schools (DIOS) and Joint Directors to ensure this training to English teachers in their districts and divisions. According to IANS, Vikas Srivastava, Deputy Director, said, “With English as the world language, it is important to skill teachers. Spoken English curriculum will be beneficial for teachers from all fields of science, commerce and humanities”.

Meanwhile, ELTI principal Skanda Shukla said, “This course differs from existing courses in the private sector in teaching essential grammar, syntax, common mistakes and speaking English, and it also follows typical Indian English based on British pronunciation.  “
