About 120 government teachers from different districts of the state on Monday successfully completed a six months training on Certificate for Primary Teachers Education (CPTE) and Early Child Care and Education (ECCE) at SCERT, Kohima. A two year course condensed into a six months programme, the training was conducted by the SCERT and DIET, and sponsored by SSA. In the valedictory service of the training, Banuo Z. Jamir, Additional Chief Secretary, Department of School Education and SCERT, who was the chief guest called upon all serving government teachers to undergo the training. Stating that Nagaland was one of the states with highest untrained teachers employed, he said it necessary that all serving teachers were trained. With the Central Government's initiation to promote teachers' education, Banuo said "the importance of teachers' education has come to stay in Nagaland." She assured that courses and skills would be improved every year. The chief guest called upon the trainees to do away the general notion that Education Department is a department to provide government job or employment. She asserted that the department required skilled and equipped professionals to build and educate human beings. She emphasized on the important role of teachers, and further stated that the primary stage was the most important stage in education. Banuo urged the trainees to go back with spirit of enthusiasm and fight against the rigid education system. She also encouraged them to inspire their students, colleagues and the whole community. Additional director, School Education, Khevito expressed his happiness on the completion of the first badge of training. He further added that the trained teachers would produce good students and in due course, bring out a good name for Government schools by producing good results. Giving a report of the training, State Project Director, Kevi Liegise said that the training was 'learner centred education' to change the philosophy and practice of teaching and education in the state. Stating that the training worked out well, Liegise urged the trainees to start anew by practically applying whatever they learnt. During the programme, the chief guest released the first volume of 'Impressions', a newsletter of the ECCE. Short speeches were delivered by trainees from the SCERT, ECCE and DIET. Songs were presented by the trainees and the resource persons. The programme was chaired by Vipralhou Kesiezie, director, SCERT.
