Note: In case the required numbers of teachers who have undergone any one of the programmes as mentioned at (I} to (7) above are not available in a region, services of such teacher(s) from other KVS Regional Offices may be utilized . as a Resource Person for In­ service training programmes to be conducted at ZIETs /other training venues.

The details of such selected Resource Persons should be sent in separately PROFORMA IV.

It has been observetj that in some cases the guest speakers invited from outside the KVS do not do proper justice  with the participants.   They often deliver lectures which are irrelevant to the needs of our teachers and outside the context of the KVS. As a result, whereas many teachers do not pay adequate attention to the lectures, in-house talents of KVS are also not properly utilized.  Many of our teachers are competent to discuss various pedagogica l issues and capable of content enrichment with their experience in actua.1 classroom transactions. There is explicit need to utilize their learning through group activities. The Guest Speakers should be judicio usly selected, not exceeding the norms in a 12/10-Day In-service Training Course. The Director/Associate Director/Resource  Persons  should  interact  with  the  participants  on  various  issues regularly every day.

In each Training Course, a PGT (Comp. Sc.) preferably having background of similar subjects may be engaged for 5 days for giving hands-on experience in IT and Multimedia to the trainees in order to make them competent in using IT in planning, teaching­ learning, evaluating and analysing the performance of self and students. The concerned Regiona l Office will ensure availability of the services of PGT  (Comp. Sc.) at the Venues/ZIETs located in the Region.

COLLECTION OF DATA: The following steps are to be taken for the collection of data for In­ service Training for the session 2023-24:

At Vidyalaya Level:

  • Each RO will circulate the information to schools immediately.

  • Principals have to ensure that no teacher who falls under priority A & B  is left out.  No addition or inclusion after finalization of venues shall be considered.

Pre-training preparations -
  • The Course Director of each course should develop a need assessment proforma specific to their subject content, listing out the different areas covered under the latest curriculum and send it to the participants of the course at least one month in advance and get back within 15 days before date of commencement of the in-service training programme.

  • An analysis of the need assessment proforma should be done by the Course Director to identify the generic and individual need areas related to the subject content.

  • The areas identified by most of the participants should be taken as thrust areas and external experts should be engaged to enrich, refresh, reinforce, update and upgrade their knowledge in those specified areas.

  • Time budgeting for the In-service Training course - content enrichment- 60%, attitude building- i5%, transactional skills - 25%.
Post training follow up -
  • The  learning  index  of each trainee  is to  be  calculated  and  communicated  to the Principal of the trainee through their participation certificate.

  • The follow up proforma/tool should be sent by the Course Director to the Principal of the trainee.

  • The Principal should record observations and send it to the Assistant Commissioner Concerned.
It is to be noted that the following types of issues/grievances do not arise:
  • a) Selected  teacher  be  exempted  on the  ground  that  the  teacher  has  already attended a training programme in the last 5 years.

  • b) A teacher's name is missing in the selected participants list and be included subsequently.

  • c) A teacher's name is included in the list of another subject inadvertently.

  • d) A promotee teacher's name is included in the list of regular teachers' list and vice-versa.
Such issues must be avoided by careful scrutiny based on the above criteria at the Vidyalaya/R.O./Zonal level.

Further, it is informed that the list of participants be sent in 'Excel' Sheet only. The 'Designation' of the teacher participants should be mentioned clearly and correctly, . keeping in view the changes made in designations. KV may use designation as given in staff sanction orders. To avoid ambiguity, designation for TGTs (Science) should be written as TGT(Sc.) and not as TGT (Bio.).' This helps in sorting of data correctly and avoiding errors. It is, therefore, suggested that subject codes to be used for transfer applications may be used to maintain uniformity and facilitate  compilation.  The Gender and category of the participant should not be left blank. The current  active email ID of the Vidyalaya must be furnished.

Please note that organization of In-service Training Courses is a time bound activity and hence the schedule should be adhered to scrupulously. The formats/Proforma to be sent are as under:
  • Priority (A) & (B) - Consolidated in respect of all the KVs in the region
  • Promoted teachers - Consolidated in respect of all the KVs in the region
  • List of proposed venues       - as identified by the RO/ZIET
  • List of Director, Associate Director,  Resource Persons, etc.-   as   identified by   the RO/ZIET
