“The present-day education system needs a strong focus on child-centric methods of mentoring and use of technology in teaching-learning. Our archaic B.Ed. courses are nowhere near catering to these demands. It's time to overhaul the Teacher Education programs in our country. When I got to know about the initiative of CENTA in partnership with MAHE on starting the Post Graduate Certificate Program in Teaching for the Future, I was very pleased as it would hopefully begin the much-needed reform.”

“Many of the current teacher preparation programs tend to be more theoretical and also not up to date. This course by CENTA covers all skills that are essential to be a highly effective educator. With key competencies, such as pedagogical content knowledge, classroom communication, and assessments, this program covers the end-to-end teaching cycle in a highly practice-oriented manner. It will highly benefit the participants who often overlooked the aspects of a teacher's career, such as time management, team building, leadership, and self-development.
