Be the best teacher you can be!

ABOUT OUR FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The Fellowship Program with Ramana Vidyalaya is an opportunity for talented undergraduates, post graduates and aspiring individuals to,

LEARN

Innovate

Evolve

get on-ground training and support,
to be a competent teacher

be the change-maker
to bring out the best in every child

build a career in the education sector based on their area of interest

The duration of the program is 12 months (1 academic year)

During the fellowship program, our fellows, as key members of the Academic team, get an excellent opportunity to serve as full-time teachers in an environment where one can innovate, show their creative talents, continuously learn and get trained by leading educators.

 

Our Fellows are empowered to:

 

  • focus on the needs of the child and instruct in a way they learn

  • gain new skills through in-house training sessions

  • sharpen their professional skills

Learn

The Fellowship begins with an induction program which ensures that fellows have the knowledge and skills required to begin teaching in a classroom. After the induction program, fellows get their class allotments for the year. They experience teaching in the classroom and interacting with children, teachers and other stakeholders.

Fellows will receive ongoing training and support in the form of training sessions, weekly check-ins, professional development conversations, teacher-shadowing partnerships. Through this fellows will get exposed to various components of education, including but not limited to curriculum, lesson planning, behaviour management, child safety etc.

INNOVATE

Throughout the fellowship, fellows will be provided with many opportunities to build their reflective practice. It is through this self - reflection that teachers look back on their teaching strategies to analyse and improve their own teaching practices. In addition, spaces for reflection are also important to help fellows build awareness of themselves as professionals and individuals.

To augment reflective practice among fellows, observation debriefs and peer observations happen frequently, by which our fellows get to observe their peers, get observed by peers, discuss and take ideas to the ground, re-examine them and improve their teaching.

As innovative educators, fellows experience and realize the importance of harnessing and nurturing the creativity of their students. Part of this process includes celebrating differences in students and differentiating instruction to meet the needs of students, to bring out the best in every child.

EVOLVE

During the fellowship year, Professional Development Conversations happen thrice a year where fellows have the space to zoom out and think about their professional development, their goals, strengths and areas of development. Based on the conversations, training and support structures are provided to equip them towards their career path in the education sector based on their area of interest. Fellows will also get the opportunity to run a school-level project and lead sessions for their peers. This is towards building their professional skills outside the classroom.

From OUR FELLoWS

The Fellowship program is a great initiative for all candidates who are about to start off with their career as a teacher. It also provides an opportunity for those who wish to resume their career after a long break. I started my career as a fellow primary teacher where I used to work in pairs with another teacher. This gave me a lot of knowledge and experience on how to handle kids. Now, I am handling middle school children since the past 6 months and I can see an increased level of confidence in myself and I am happy to take the role of the class teacher as well. This has made me more responsible and I wish this learning never ends!

From our trainers

'I am passionate about teaching and education but I am not sure if I can be a good teacher' - newbies start their fellowship program with this self-doubt. RV’s Fellowship Program transforms them into competent teachers who end up saying, 'I teach, What’s your superpower?'

Apart from teaching, fellows get to develop skills, knowledge and mindset needed to work closely with the management on the school’s priorities like Curriculum Design, Branding & Communication, Special Education, Visual and Performing Arts, School administration, Child Protection, Infrastructural Development, Early Childhood Education, Sports, Fitness & Health and others.

Teaching is rewarding, in that each teacher goes through a unique journey to enable learning for students, and in the process become lifelong learners themselves. The fellowship is one such opportunity for fellows to undertake this journey and grow, not only as a teaching professional, but as individuals as well.

 

As a fellow manager, it is incredibly inspiring to be witness to this journey; from participating in the fellow induction and training program to confidently leading their own subject classrooms merely months later. The fellowship makes room for self-reflection, peer learning, mentoring and exposure to the diversity of roles and responsibilities in an educational institution in addition to building competent teachers who put the learning of the students first.

- Vinusha Venkatesh, Learning & Development Manager

‘Only the brave teach.’ - I’ve been a strong believer of this quote right from when I stepped into the field of education.

 

The fellowship program is one such platform which builds strong, brave, skilled and competent individuals, not just teachers. It enables an individual to learn and grow as a teacher, through hands-on training and support. The program sets a great platform for new teachers to identify their strengths and build themselves as strong leaders inside and outside the classroom.

 

To be able to train, mentor and support a bunch of young teachers has been so inspiring and fulfilling. Being able to witness all their energy, hardwork and skills translate into action inside their classrooms has been delightful. I can’t wait for my team of fellows to become full-fledged teachers/leaders and build a career in the field of education.
