A Training Programme for Teachers from various schools around Shikhrapur (Shirur, Pune) was conducted by LeapForWord on 8th June 2016 as part of the LeapForWord Teacher Self Employment Drive 2016 – 2017.

Over 50 teachers participated in the training session. The First two levels of the English Literacy Programme were covered in the session.


The training session began at 10.30 a.m in the morning. The teachers showed active participation and were very keen to learn the concepts and the methodologies used to teach English.

A small test was conducted to understand their comprehension during the training session.


The teachers were very positive about the training and were looking forward for the certification.

Around 19 teachers from English medium schools also participated in the training session. They also found the training session very valuable.


One interesting feedback we got is that even teachers from English medium schools found this teaching methodology quite interesting and they ensured that they would surely pass it on to others schools as well. They said these techniques would be very useful for teaching and they will definitely incorporate them while teaching.
