All the Regional Joint Directors of School Education, District Educational Officers in the state are informed that it is decided to implement the Teacher Professional Development courses (TPD) in all
Government schools of Andhra Pradesh from the Academic Year 2023-24 onwards. These courses are rolled out by SCERT as part of the AP SALT Program aiming to improve learning outcomes and quality of teaching practices in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

These courses will be rolled out for capacity building and support to teachers of Grade 3 to 10. These courses are based on teachers’ needs identified through the Teachers’ Training Need Survey and will be rolled out in succession. All the courses follow a blended learning model. The online part consists of consuming training videos, reading material, and quizzes as course content along with a pre-test and post-test. 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.

Keeping in view of the above SCERT is launching the first course, ‘Developing English Pedagogy’ on 31 August 2023. This course is meant for teachers teaching English, Science, Social Science, and Mathematics for grades 6 to 10. This course comprises 3 modules in total and one new module will be released every month. Further, under each module, there are 4-7 learning videos with a duration of approximately 10-15 minutes each.

After teachers go through the module in the given timeline, they will be required to discuss the concepts of the course and provide feedback on the course during the PLC in school complex meetings.
Over a span of next three months, the course will unfold in a structured manner. Each month, one module will be released to teachers.

All teachers who are provided with logins must complete the course by 30th November 2023.
