As a capacity building organization, Adhyayan Foundation seeks to improve the leadership and governance of teaching and learning in schools. Adhyayan’s team members have been refining the process of evidence-based self-review, benchmarked against global and Indian best practice, for the last 6 years across 390+ schools in 27 States through Adhyayan Quality Education Services, our social enterprise.
As consultants for TESS India, both projects of the Open University, UK our senior team have worked with teacher educator institutions of the government in West Bengal, MP, UP, and Assam to write the leadership materials as open education resources (OERs) for the training of teacher educators.
Our Founders were also actively involved in a UKIERI-MHRD commissioned programme, Developing school leadership capacity in India’, in partnership with the National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), UK. The programme was used to develop and refine the content of the School Leadership Development Programme (SLDP) delivered by the National Centre for School Leadership (NCSL) in the National Institute for Education, Planning and Administration (NIEPA), Delhi. The programme trained over 7700 leaders of government schools in Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Pondicherry, Maharashtra, and Kerala in the leadership of teaching and learning. The States developed a cadre of senior tutor facilitators to ensure that the training for the SLDP continued on an annual basis.
