Tejas to improve English language learning in primary schools
The Tejas project is a joint initiative between the Government of Maharashtra, Tata Trusts and the British Council. It aims to improve the quality of English language learning in primary schools. Under this initiative, teachers form face-to-face and digital communities of practice in their local areas through Teacher Activity Groups (TAGs). This enables them to develop their language ability, teaching skills, knowledge and experience. Tejas also aims to revitalise the Regional Academic Authority, Aurangabad, so that is it better equipped to independently plan, manage and support English training initiatives across the state.
As a result of this partnership project, over 1.5 million are set to benefit from the improved English Language teaching methods by 2021.
