About Teacher Exchange Programmes

A catalyst to the child’s innate learning capacity, a teacher nurtures the child through his/her delicate years. A good teacher understands the needs of students and modifies his/her approach according to the evolving times. A healthy student-teacher is as vital as a relationship between parents and kids as teachers have a paramount role in nurturing the child.

It is empirical that a passionate teacher makes better students. Such teachers are open to learning at all stages in their lives, they love what they do, and hence find refined ways to reach their students. They are open to suggestions which enhances the students’ experience and attitude towards learning. A passionate teacher is an asset to any country as they strengthen the education sector by making better students.

Since learning is a persistent process, refurbishing the teaching techniques as well as the teaching faculty is always welcomed. One such platform is the Teacher Exchange Programme (TEP). A teacher exchange programme is an opportunity where a teacher practicing in the home country can swap places with a teacher from a foreign country.
