Ignus Pahal, in partnership with UP SSA and UNICEF – India, is running a programme titled – ‘Targeted Enhancement in Learning Outcomes for Students’ (TELOS).
The approach of this project is built around a set of performance standards and indicators for teachers and head teachers, as well as those providing them inputs and support, including CRCs and BRCs (i.e. the teacher support system).
The pilot phase of the project ran from June 2017 to December 2017 in 5 districts of the state in 100+ schools and saw a 10%+ improvement in student performance as well as marked enhancement in performance of teachers and the support system.
In the current full-scale implementation, TELOS will see itself implemented in 40% of primary schools in the same 5 districts with the help of individual District Resource Teams (DRTs).
