Leadership Development in Communities
Teacher Leadership Program
If you want to go fast, go alone
If you want to go far, go together

- African proverb

What We Do?
The Teacher Leader Program was initiated with a vision to build a community of awakened educators and learners. It’s a framework of enabling growth in awareness and building competencies required for the 21st-century educator. The future requires us to catalyze a movement – of practice – where teaching and learning – is experienced as an integral part of life and living. A teacher is a leader of learning – through what and how they influence. TLP is a framework through which teachers can enable the learning of future leaders.

How Do We Do It?
The program works with two groups of people: the teachers and the facilitators. Facilitators in this program are educators who volunteer their time to work with an identified group of teachers along with their learning journey. The program asks for the leadership of self-driven educators and envisions creating self-driven educator learning communities.
Journey as a Teacher Facilitator
The facilitators go through a 5-day facilitator development program to initiate their journey of facilitation. We create a safe space by connecting to each other, and we get to see the overall structure of the program. We also get introduced to the 5 core competencies of a facilitator and deepen the learning principles.
The facilitators learn the 15 session teacher leadership framework while working in parallel with a group of community teachers. Facilitators learn with the core group and take their learning ahead with community teachers in the subsequent week. There is a learning loop involved for the facilitators with action, reflection and silence being practised throughout the program. 3). Continuous learning: Facilitators can continue to work with their existing community of teachers or work with a new group of teachers. In our experience, from the teachers who are facilitated, some definitely get interested to become facilitators themselves and are then formed into cohorts for facilitating other teacher communities.

These three parallel tracks ensure a continuous loop and growing network of learning communities which will
shape the future of education.
What is the Impact?
A community of 5 teacher facilitators was led by Jasmeet Walia as their facilitator developer. Sakshi and Manzil were the partner NGO’s and their community teachers were involved in the program. Even though COVID 19 created a hiatus in physical learning. It also created an opportunity to move the sessions from physical to digital. And innovate new formats of teaching, learning and enable the competencies of our teachers to navigate the new challenges of online learning. As well as how to adapt and innovate for continuous learning for children.
Our work has extended to a community of 10 educator facilitators and more than 60 community teachers. This teacher group is diverse and has teachers coming from different demographics and contexts across India – cohorts include teachers from rural Udaipur, Delhi: teachers from Kotlai working with early age children and parents, DIET teachers, B.ed students, and community teachers from Madhya Pradesh. Adapting to the context of COVID, we are leveraging technology to enable learning for all our educator learners.
