  In what language is the course conducted? Will I have a problem if I am more fluent in Hindi?



 

The course is conducted in English. However, we do use mixed language in the classroom when required. You need to be able to understand English, but you are welcome to communicate in Hindi in the class if you are more comfortable with it. Persons who are keen to upgrade their skills in the English language are encouraged and supported all through the programme.

 

Do remember that there is a demand for teachers teaching Hindi, Computer, Games, etc. Looking ahead, you will find your niche in a school when seeking employment.

 This is the first time I am stepping out of home or planning to study after a long break. Will I face a problem adjusting?





Not really, since the initial pace is relatively slow. We are aware that a number of people who undertake our course are looking at a change of pace and occupation; they’ve either been home, settled their families and are now ready to devote some time to themselves, or are looking at a different career option.

We ensure that there is a balance of many fun activities within the sessions, and that work carried home is minimal. Many of your “assignments” would involve spending time with your children and family.

  Will I become a better mother? Will I learn how to deal with my own children?




Most certainly you will! As you discover more about child development and the special abilities children have at different ages and stages of growth, you will find yourself becoming more patient, more understanding, and even more intuitive about your child’s behaviour.

You will learn how best to enhance your child’s abilities and extend them in fun ways. You will be able to offer interventions, opening up possibilities with simple, practical strategies.

 Will I gain confidence and poise?



Several trainees have confirmed that a more positive self-image was an unexpected “outcome” of the 3EP. The friendly, supportive environment, the sense of achievement as you progress through each stage of the course, the content of the Personal and Professional Development module (which includes time management, public speaking, planning nutritious meals, counselling skills), as well as conducting demonstration lessons and presentations in front of your peers… All these help you to overcome inhibitions and grow in confidence.

 How does the 3EP compare to the NTT or B. Ed?




The 3EP is a project undertaken by the SRF Foundation, the founding body of The Shri Ram Schools. The Shri Ram name has long been associated with excellent academic standards. Drawing on over twenty five years of experience with The Shri Ram Schools, the 3EP aims to go beyond theoretical knowledge and into the classroom.

 

All the trainers have had years of experience both within the school and beyond it; and each is a subject specialist in her own right. In addition, several external experts from diverse fields, such as eminent child psychologists and career counselors, are regularly invited to conduct sessions.

 

The course is constantly reviewed to ensure that best practices available across the world are incorporated in our sessions.

 

We take great pains to ensure that our trainees are given extended exposure behind the scenes in Early Education classrooms of established schools and preschools in the NCR.

 What about placements? Will you help me get a job after I complete the course?





We ensure that you visit and intern at some of the leading schools and preschools in the NCR, and that you meet the relevant managerial staff there during your observation and internship.

 

Since 2007 our students have found placements in leading schools of Gurgaon and Delhi. To name a few: Shikshantar, Ridge Valley, Heritage, Lotus Valley, KR Mangalam, Kunskapsskolen, Manav Bharati, Pathways, TSPPS Bhondsi, TSMS Noida and of course TSRS Aravali and Vasant Vihar.

 

We also support you by giving guidance for placements – how to apply, when to apply, writing CVs and putting up vacancy notices.
