School Education Reformation Center
Enhancing the student learning experience at every student level in the classroom can only bring equity, joyful learning, and skills development among students.
School Education Reformation Center runs a fellowship program under these critical issues addressed through innovative classroom practices involvement of government and community stakeholders.
Each of these factors plays a significant role in shaping the educational experience and can impact a student's academic progress and overall outcomes.
1) Student's Safety & Classroom Culture
2) Lack of Skill-based Teaching in Classroom
3) Lack of Socio-Emotional Skilling of Students
4) Parent Involvement in Student's Learning & Growth
Our School Education Reformation Program prioritizes the holistic growth of students in low-income private and public schools, focusing on those in rural and semi-urban areas. We understand that these circumstances can improve students' academic learning progress, social and emotional development, wellness, and intensive skills development throughout their learning journey.
It's essential to acknowledge that students encounter challenges in urban areas and remote rural and tribal regions. Maharashtra alone has over one lakh schools, making public education a considerable aspect of the educational landscape.
We believe in implementing a systemic approach to education reform that will strengthen the grassroots public education system. To achieve this, we employ several strategies, such as intervening through part-time or full-time classroom teaching programs, providing afterschool support through community centres, promoting socio-emotional learning, fostering student leadership, and encouraging community engagement for better student learning outcomes.
Our focus is on enhancing the quality of education in rural and semi-urban regions by addressing critical aspects at the system level. To support their overall growth and development, we strive to provide high-quality education to all students, irrespective of their background or location.
The fellowship program is initially for 12 months; from 2025, it will be upgraded to a two-year full-time fellowship program.
We carefully select local fellows who demonstrate high levels of professionalism, strong character, and a passion for the teaching-learning process. Our fellows must embody inclusivity, empathy, and a giving-back approach and be comfortable working with both the classroom and the community.
In simpler terms, fellows should have a developmental leadership attitude, meaning they possess the qualities and mindset necessary for facilitating growth and development in others.
Once selected, fellows will fulfil three functional roles: passionate educator, guide & coach.
We provide a blended/physical Institute Training program to prepare our fellows. This training is designed to nurture fellows by equipping them with the necessary knowledge, skills, and mindsets to implement best practices in the classroom, promote socio-emotional learning, conduct assessments, ensure student well-being and leadership, and build their capacity as leaders.
The Institute Training program typically lasts 3-4 weeks, during which fellows engage in various learning and training activities to enhance their understanding and core abilities in these critical areas to function.
After rigorous training, the fellow will be placed in local government/low-income private schools as a subject teacher. Their responsibilities include classroom teaching, assessments, student support, field visits, student leadership coaching, and creating collaborative spaces.
They will also engage in parent-teacher meetings, S.E.L. training, improvement monitoring, and student counselling to provide excellent educational resources and support to the school and community.
