Dharamshala: Education Kalon Dr. Pema Yangchen conducted the third webinar on the draft document of English Curriculum and Learning Standards Framework for primary and middle school teachers on 28th August, 2020. A total of 20 teachers from 10 Sambhota Schools located in South India participated in the 2-hour session.
The English Curriculum and Learning Standards Framework for classes IV-VIII has formulated due to the inadequacies in the existing English Curriculum formulated in 2010 and to meet the challenges of the students in terms of its content, structure, and organisation.
The new curriculum CTA is said to transform the way English is taught in Tibetan schools and make it more engaging and meaningful in addition to establishing a common expectation for what the students need to know and be able to do at each class level that is consistent throughout the three Tibetan school systems in India i.e. TCV, THF and STSS.
The first webinar was held on 13th August 2020 for the school heads and teachers of Sambhota schools located in North-East and Central India. A total of 42 teachers took part in the workshop through Google Meet. The second webinar was held on 21st August 2020 for the school heads and teachers of the four schools under the Tibetan Homes Foundation which was participated by 31 participants.

The final webinar will be held shortly for the school heads and English teachers of TCV Ladakh and its branch schools. Around 40 school heads and 135 English teachers from the three school systems will attend the workshop.
