Caritas Pakistan is focused on increasing the literary rate in Pakistan through its “Caritas Initiative for Education Promotion” (CIEP) project that started in January 2019. For this purpose, three days training workshop was organized from 3-5th October,2019.
All diocesan project officers (DPOs and Facilitators of the training) along with teachers of “Caritas Community Schools” (CCS) from six project implementing dioceses approximately 20 in number, accumulated at Caritas Pakistan National Secretariat for a focal point “Teacher Training and lesson learnt on multi-grade teaching”. Group works and presentations were held in supervision of main facilitators, Ms. Anila Gill (Education Program officer), on the objective of progress sharing of first implementation phase and challenges faced.
Different sessions were conducted including multi-grade Teaching (Mr. John Rehmat CPK), Teaching methodologies and approaches in multi-grade teaching (Ms. Rabia Tariq CPNS), Activity designing for multi-grade teaching (Ms. Mishal Naseem CPH) and Way forward approach to scale up Caritas Community Schools (Mr. Aneel Mushtaq Executive Secretary Faisalabad). The participants were acknowledged by awarding certificates for their enthusiastic involvement in the training, that contributes in effective implementation of the project.
“CIEP is not just a project but a movement to make education accessible to those who are unreached of this basic need, particularly dropouts and child labors and teachers should not consider it a job but a reformer of positive change in nation” said Mr. Amjad Gulzar (Executive Director). “The role of a teacher is very important. The biggest responsibility is to understand the psychology of students.”
