Ignus Pahal, in partnership with UP SSA and UNICEF – India, is running a programme titled – ‘Targeted Enhancement in Learning Outcomes through Supportive Supervision’ (TELOS). This programme is run under MHRD’s ‘Padhe Bharat Badhe Bharat’ initiative.
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 full-scale implementation in the academic year 2018-19, TELOS was implemented in 100% of primary schools in the same 5 districts with the help of individual District Resource Teams (DRTs) and Block Resource Teams (BRTs) developed from within the state system itself.
