By Aparna Shivapura
PFLA, or People First Leadership Academy has been founded with a vision to empower the Teaching Community across the country and beyond, with an objective of creating QUALITY EDUCATION through QUALITY TEACHING.
PFLA believes that the most critical elements of imparting quality education are the quality of teachers and the quality of teaching in India and the world over. Education is complete only if the quality of education is impactful, the right values of education are imparted and above all, the child or the student is in the ‘right hands.’
There are a growing number of schools, there is an equally growing number of challenges faced by educational institutions and that is hiring, training and retaining the best quality of teachers. In fact, generating good quality teachers continues to be a key challenge plaguing our country.
There are multiple roles that a teacher covers in his/her training today. Some of them are – Teaching the curriculum in a successful manner, educating the children holistically, providing a platform for skill training, empowering the child / student with soft skills and overall development, handling stressful situations in learning, teaching a diverse set of students and managing them in a classroom, handling cultural and socio-economic challenges faced by children and many more.
PFLA has trained and coached over 40,000 people that include Teachers and Students at Schools, Colleges and Business Schools, Corporate Employees and general public on various programs. PFLA also partners with Educational Institutions and offers them variety of Educational Services viz., Teacher Empowerment programs, short and long duration Certification programs for Teachers, Books and Curriculum for pre-primary levels, School Leadership programs, and more.
Quality of teaching cannot be compromised and this is the vision behind the Teacher Training Program offered by PFLA and its visionary founder, Varada Murthy.
