Training and capacity building programmes

Training is a crucial segment of IPER’s work. IPER regularly runs multi – dimensional training programme on counselling, advocacy, project management, child development, gender issues, communication and so on.

Teachers’ Training ECCE

IPER is working in the field of school education for more than four decades.  During this work it has been noticed that in spite of having a number of Pre-primary schools mushrooming in the city and suburbs in spite of having training courses for Primary and Secondary stages there is no such training for the teachers or facilitators pre-primary stage of education. But it is a well known fact that the early years of human life especially the 2 to 6 years is a very important stage of our life.

To mitigate this need IPER started a course titled ‘Early Childhood Care and Education’ [ECCE] for the purpose of training of teachers of the Pre-Primary and Nursery stage. Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) makes a positive contribution to children’s long term development and learning. Beside teachers it is also felt that this would help parents to address the issue within the family set-up.
