The Online course content for these courses will be rolled out on a new teacher training platform called ‘FIRKI’. This will be complemented with an offline engagement by means of Peer Learning Circles (PLCs) during school- complex meetings. Teachers enrolled in the course will have to attend PLC after completion of the module in a given time. This information will be passed out to teachers through an orientation video which will be circulated by SCERT to orient all the teachers on the new need-based training courses initiative.
