For years, the Education Department has struggled to prove a point that even the government school students can also speak fluent English, for which various initiatives have been taken. Making the government school students excel in English language has been one of the agendas of the Education Department for years, and now, with a view to sensitise as well as equip the newly-promoted English lecturers with the latest teaching techniques, methods and activities, the Education Department organised a four-day virtual induction training, which concluded on Saturday. State resource persons (English) Varinder Kaur Sekhon and Chander Shekhar coordinated the training.

Education Secretary Krishan Kumar, in his inaugural address, said, “The proficiency in languages, especially English is a must for students to tap various educational and employment avenues in the present era of globalisation,” he added.

SCERT Director Jagtar Singh Kulharia and assistant director (trainings) Salinder Singh also mobilised the participants to focus on enhancing their skills.

State Resource Person Chander Shekhar made them aware of various innovative activities and projects, including English Booster Clubs, to encourage language skills, especially fluency in communication skills among students.

The Education Secretary congratulated the newly-promoted lecturers for attaining higher responsibility and also exhorted them to avail the benefit of training.
