In an attempt to provide quality education ingovernment schools across the state, the government has launched a leadership development programme for school heads, administrative heads and teachers.

As many as 100 primary and secondary school heads will be trained by Delhi-based organisation Kaivalya Education Foundation (KEF). The project will run over five years from 2016 to 2021.

'The memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed in Punchkula and the work is going on. We hope that it will help improve learning levels of students in government schools,' said a senior education official.

In order to assess the impact of the programme, a third party will be appointed to carry out two surveys — one before carrying out the project and the other towards the fag end of the programme.

'The objective of the programme will be to build leadership capabilities among the heads of government schools and enable them to bring about transformation in learning levels of students,' said a KEF official.

Across the four blocks in the Gurgaon district, around 100 schools have been handpicked for the project. At this stage, the members from KEF are interacting with the people from the education department and SCERT to understand the problems faced by schools.
