Life Skill Integration In Personal Contact Programmes: Feedback Analysis Of Capacity Building Workshops For Tutors
For achieving sustainable development, education is the pre-requisite. Due to a number of barriers, formal education is not accessible to all. Reaching education to those who are discriminated against on the basis of socio-economic background, gender and abilities will make sustainable development more achievable. // It is with this principle of inclusive education; NIOS caters to the educational aspirations of out of school people through printed self-learning material and a limited number of contact classes. 76% of NIOS learners are in the vulnerable stage of adolescence and early youth. It is a time to develop their independent identity, find a vocation and prepare for marriage. Adolescence is the time when an individual gets equipped with life skills to be able to negotiate stressful or otherwise life experiences in a positive manner. Accepting the challenge of transacting Life Skills Education (LSE) through open distance education NIOS started the process of life skill integration in the curriculum of selected subjects at secondary level. // In order to maximize the benefit of life skills enrichment in the study materials for empowerment in learners, NIOS under its Adolescence Education Programme supported by UNFPA has designed an intense three day residential capacity building initiative for tutors: Effective Personal Contact Programmes (PCPs). The workshop trains the tutors in transacting the lessons with situations that most of the learners can relate to and encourages them to practice life skills enriched content through a participative and collaborative mode during the Personal Contact Programmes. In an innovative pilot the workshops test-organized for approximately 200 tutors. This paper details the methodology of the workshops and presents the result of the feedback received after the workshops were conducted. // Paper ID: 315
