ENGLISH-WINGLISH: BUILDING A CADRE OF CONFIDENT ENGLISH TEACHERS!
2nd August 2018
With great pride, we would like to share that Tech Mahindra Foundation has launched a new teacher training program called English-Winglish, which is opening doors to English for in-service government school teachers and their classrooms.
The government has realised the importance of promoting English in schools as it is the gateway for a better life and a promising future. However, the biggest impediment for vernacular medium schools is the shortage of English language teachers.
To overcome this, Tech Mahindra Foundation has designed a Spoken English program to enhance the communication skills of government school teachers and imparts training to enhance English teaching methodology in the classroom.
The program was piloted in 2017 with 40 teachers from municipal schools in Mumbai. This year, we have taken the program to Pune municipal schools as well and are currently training about 100 teachers in both the cities. A significant feature is that English-Winglish is being implemented directly by the Foundation, with our in-house Education team members as the trainers.
We hope these teachers fulfill the aspirations of millions of parents who send their wards to government schools through this program. Over the next few years, we hope to expand the footprint of English-Winglish to all our locations, creating a vast network of teachers who are change-makers for future generations.
