Teach For India has announced the final round of applications for its Fellowship programme. The deadline for the same is 8th March 2020. The Teach For India Fellowship is a 2-year full-time paid opportunity for India’s most promising individuals, both recent graduates, and working professionals, to serve as teachers to children in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools.
Teach For India equips Fellows with skills such as planning and execution, stakeholder management, empathy, patience, and resourcefulness. This has enabled Fellows to become top candidates for consideration at the world’s best universities, such as Harvard, Cornell, IIM, Columbia, and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences; and reputed companies- Godrej, Bain & Company, Salesforce, Radio Mirchi, KPMG, HDFC Bank, etc.
Teach For India Fellows receive a solid foundation in classroom instruction and pedagogy. They also receive ongoing technical training, and interactive workshops for personal development both from in-house trainers, and external experts through the course of the Fellowship.
Through this experience, Fellows who work in classrooms liaise with key education stakeholders like students, principals, parents and communities. They are exposed to the grassroots realities of India’s education system and begin to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to deeply understand the various problems in their student’s context and begin imagining solutions both for their own classrooms and communities in the short term and for the country in the long term.
