The importance of teacher empowerment in key education areas cannot be underestimated. In our constant endeavor to strengthen the teaching-learning process and to empower our teachers with the latest tools and techniques, Seth M.R. Jaipuria Schools organized a four days training programme at Lucknow for all teachers across all running schools. More than 150 teachers were trained on best practices to foster the classroom teaching and connecting it to the real world. Special emphasis was given to holistic development of teachers. Stress Free Teaching and mild Yoga were strong components of the programme, emphasizing that teacher well-being needs to be looked into, so as to enable them to enjoy their work to the utmost. The purpose of this training was to give the teachers a platform to not only share the best practices followed at schools globally, but also enable them to become an active participant of the learning hub.
