Latest Programmes for Teachers, Students & Professionals

Programmes for Teachers

Teacher education has become an area of considerable interest among policy makers in many countries over recent years. This reflects a growing body of research on the central importance of teacher knowledge and skill to quality learning opportunities for students. It also reflects the need to train in-service teachers in latest methodology and technology, to make teaching-learning process ‘smart’ and enjoyable. ‘Horizons’ firmly believe that the need to recruit and prepare a new generation of teachers is very important in modernising our educational system.
