The Maharaja Sayajirao University (MSU) of Baroda has organised a ten-day special training programme on school management for education officers from Afghanistan.
The programme, being held by the department of educational administration, faculty of education and psychology, was formally inaugurated on March 8.
K Pushpanadham, professor of educational management and director of the international training programme, said the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SCA) has requested MSU to organise this capacity building initiative for educational officers belonging to the strife-torn country. The SCA is funding the programme.
The ministry of education, Afghanistan, has deputed 16 officers for this programme which also includes study visits.
“The aim of the programme is to increase awareness among education officers and government authorities engaged in managing education activities in Afghanistan on methods and approaches used in India and globally in practicing supervision skills and managing schools,” Pushpanadham said.Posted in States
