During the entire service period of the teachers of the state, reports of their good work and shortfalls will now be recorded in the online mobile application. The National Initiative for School Heads and Teachers Holistic Advancement (Nishtha), an institute working to improve the quality of education across the country, has launched this app in the state. The institute has also named its app ‘Nishtha’.
NCERT representative Professor Ranjana Arora announced the launch of the loyalty app and web portal. Pro. Ranjana said that experts from NCERT and the National Institute of Education Planning and Administration (NEPA) have prepared special training for basic teachers, which has been adjusted in this loyalty app.
Reported that the loyalty program in the country was launched on August 21 this year. Since the success of the program, it has so far successfully trained teachers in 19 states. The objective of loyalty is to provide state-of-the-art training to 42 lakh basic teachers across the country.
She said that the objective of training is to make teachers efficient in their core subjects and to train them to develop leadership skills in students. Pro. Ranjana said that the teachers joining the training will be linked with the loyalty application. The teachers involved in training will be prepared as key resource persons and state resource persons.
These teachers will be given the responsibility of training teachers at district and block levels. In this way, the basic teachers of the state will be connected with loyalty. Told that once the teacher has joined this app or portal, the details of his entire service period will be recorded in it.
