One classroom, many learning needs
The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) emphasises on providing quality early childhood development, care and education to children in the 3 – 8 years age group, which builds a strong foundation for their school education. It also emphasises on full participation of children with diverse learning needs throughout the schooling years.
Why a Diploma in Education
There is an acute shortage of well-trained school teachers and ECE functionaries who can fulfil the promise of delivering high-quality services to the diverse population of children across different age groups.
The Diplomas in Education offered by Azim Premji University aim to fulfil the need for good quality professional development programmes to help develop the capabilities of teachers and professionals working in the regular school system.
Who should join
The Diploma in Early Childhood Education is designed for Early Childhood Education professionals and teachers working with children in the age group of 3 – 8 years.
The Diploma in Inclusive Education and Diploma in Learning Disability programmes will be beneficial to all teachers in the primary and middle school, and to administrative heads, School Principals, Special Educators, and Counsellors belonging to the public and private school systems.
