The entire training strategies for in-service untrained teachers need to be based on the basic  principles enumerated below:
i. Promotion of child friendly and barrier free education for all children,
ii. Promotion of child centred pedagogical processes leading to more of activities for experiential
learning, exploration, inquiry, discovery, etc.
iii. Based on NCF 2005 and to guide all our plans for facilitating teaching learning processes in
different subject areas. It centres around five key guiding principles:
Connecting knowledge to life outside the school;
Ensuring that learning shifts from rote methods;
Enriching the curriculum so that it goes beyond textbooks;
Making examinations more flexible and integrating them with classroom life;

system. Teacher preparation needs to look at CCE as an important area of learning for the

for children so that every child learns well as desired under the Act.
