The National Child Development Council (NCDC), a National Child Welfare Organisation based in New Delhi, on Monday launched online Paperless English Training (PET) and Teacher Training in Child Education for the first time in Manipur's Ukhrul district.

Yaomichon Ragui, NCDC faculty-cum-admission coordinator announced this during a press conference held on Monday at Ukhrul District Working Journalists' office located at Viewland, Ukhrul. 

Ragui said that PET is designed exclusively for high school and college going students who struggle to speak English. "In spite of the fact that our community students had the opportunity to study English for many years, they failed to make breakthroughs in the job market and when faced with the outside world."

Keeping this in mind, we launched the programme, she said, adding spoken English training and instruction on general knowledge, computer skills will be given to trainees along with daily lessons and activities which will be shared directly with the learners through WhatsApp and live classes every Sunday from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm.

"Its module progressively teaches trainees to speak English through games and riddles without requiring them to understand grammar," she explained.

Grammar-centric teaching, though has many advantages, kills the joy of learning. " No learner has the same level of thinking, pace, and interest. We accordingly implement the spirit of "I know, but I know, and know nothing pattern of learning to equip our students with the real joy of learning and experience to further improve their knowledge and skills and share the same," she said, recounting her experience. 

Ragui further stated that the NCDC is launching another new online batch of teacher training courses in child education designed only for women.

When asked the sole reason for designing the course specifically for women, Ragui maintained that women are not far behind. They have lots of potential, all they need is to redefine and empower them" as they have innate abilities.

Knowing the child's psychology is of paramount importance. A child should be allowed to make his or her own decision. Parents often resort to responding, not knowing the interest and temperament of their wards. 

“To be eligible for the training, an applicant must be a qualified students from Class 10 to degree level, “ she said, adding that there are five courses available namely: Certificate in International Preschool Education, Certificate in International Montessori Education, Diploma in International Montessori Education, Post Graduate Diploma Courses, and Advanced Diploma in International Montessori Education.

Ragui further informed that those interested can go to https://ncdconline.org or call 09288026162/07356163344.
