Delhi: New state-of-the-art block opened at State Council of Educational Research and Training



NEW DELHI: The Delhi government has established a new block with state-of-the-art facilities to train in-service teachers at the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), officials said on Friday.
The block has five training halls, an auditorium, conference room, faculty office, inset room and a canteen.
Inaugurating the training block for teachers, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the new facilities will take the teachers’ training standards to “new heights” in the national capital.
“Our teachers can be trained here in a good environment with better facilities. This new block will also act as a centre for research and innovation in the field of education in Delhi,” Sisodia said.
He further stated that while the Delhi government has provided the facilities, it is SCERT’s “responsibility” to ensure proper training for teachers in the new block.
“The government has done the work of providing facilities for this training but beyond this, it is SCERT’s responsibility to ensure excellent training for the teachers here. SCERT has played an important role in the formulation of Mindset Curricula and Delhi education revolution,” the deputy chief minister said.
He further stated that in the academic session 2021-22, SCERT has trained more than 82,000 teachers for ‘Mission Buniyaad‘ and so far 39,405 teachers have been trained under three Mindset curriculum in the current session.
“The teacher-training management system developed by SCERT will prove to be very helpful for teachers and their professional development. This will include a database of 62,000 teacher profiles, training assignments, growth and training resources,” he said.
