The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations that conducts the ICSE and ISC exams has initiated a physical education and community-coaching program for women teachers. The online program will be conducted throughout the month and is scheduled to begin on March 8.
“It will be a two-week program with 28 sessions altogether, with two sessions of 90 minutes each. The program offers an opportunity for the women teachers to learn from some of the best trainers in the world,” reads the circular sent to the school principals.
The training, which is free, will provide participation certificates if they attend 70% of classes. A certificate of merit will be awarded to those participants who get at least 60% marks in the online examination.
The training will provide teachers with the knowledge and skill to enable, engage and empower students to be physically active and emerge as self-reliant leaders. “We shall encourage our teachers to participate since the coaching will be provided by specialists and sports nutritionists. It is a project initiated by the centre under Fit India Movement,” informed the school head.
“We will encourage our physical education instructor to participate. There will be experts from the international arena which will help the teachers understand the global perspective,” explained a school principal.
