Where there is a will, there is a way. For HPPI’s Necessary Teacher Training (NeTT) Programme, which focuses on training quality primary school teachers for tomorrow, the 21-day lockdown announced to end the chain of spreading the COVID-19 virus meant closing down all schools and institutions. However, team members and student-teachers across the Projects stepped up and adapted to new ways to continue teaching and learning.

Social distancing is the key to stop the spreading of the virus and thus in the District Institute for Education and Training (DIETs) and Government Elementary Teacher Training Institute (GETTIs) where HPPI’s NeTT Programme is implemented, student-teachers and faculty members are staying in their homes but are connected via the use of technology.

300 student-teachers of DIET Nalanda in Bihar, for example, are continuing to receive education through digital means. The student-teachers from Year 1 and Year 2 are connected with their teachers through a social messaging application, WhatsApp, and have created dedicated groups for each of the batches. The groups also help create awareness and spread precautionary measures about coronavirus.

Similarly, in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, the HPPI team of teacher educators, together with the faculty members of DIET Ujjain, are conducting online class sessions for the student-teachers. Using their mobile phones and a popular video conferencing application, the students and faculty members conduct two-hour-long sessions covering important topics from the syllabus. These remote classes are now slated to continue throughout the period of the lockdown, covering all the batches of the DIET.

Student-teachers from various DIETs are also creating informative posters from their homes and sharing them with their peers over mobile phones.


The two-year NeTT Programme which focuses on creating quality teachers thus ensuring quality education for students in schools marked its 10-year anniversary in India in 2019. The Programme has so far graduated 12,038 teachers, many of whom now provide quality education to children across government and private schools, tuition centres and other educational institutions in India.
