Educator training and deployment

Training

Selection

  • Teacher selection is the process of selecting high-quality professional tutors. Teaching and learning are the core of elementary and primary education, and we consider them essential aspects during teacher selection, including:
    • Verbal Ability
    • Content Knowledge
    • Teacher Certification
    • Teaching Experience
    • Relevant syllabus exposure and Expertise

Onboarding

  • Teachers’ orientation is conducted during the introduction to the TG GURUKUL platform that includes courses offered, content creation, teaching pedagogy, tests and assessments. In addition, senior teachers are assigned as mentors to each new teacher onboarded, who is responsible for the training and assigning of these teachers to respective classes.

Training

  • Training is conducted about how to use the TG GURUKUL platform and Whiteboard. Mock demos and sessions are conducted to gauge the use of whiteboard tools, content, and teaching pedagogy. Once the teacher completes the two-week training session successfully, the mentor certifies the teacher and assigns him/her to the respective class.

Deployment

Live Online Classroom Sessions

  • TG Gurukul programmes are designed for students to maximise their learning potential. These Live Online Classroom Sessions involve live learning with Expert Teachers who have successfully guided many students. All questions related to the concepts being taught can be answered on the spot, followed by regular unit tests and class tests to gauge the students’ progress.

Proof of Concept

  • Proof of Concept is a programme in which TG Gurukul teachers teach a class of students their choice of topic. All types of visual and auditory devices are used to make the class interactive. It is an effective substitute to ensure that impactful teaching reaches remotely based students.

Career Counselling and Workshops

  • We extend our teaching to understanding students’ individual learning styles and modes and design the programmes based on their interests and aptitude – with face-to-face conversations. Our demonstration sessions are critical for this.
