About Teachers’ Reskilling Cell


“It is said that no people can rise above the level of its teachers” (NPE, 1986); and “the teacher must be at the centre of the fundamental reforms in the education system” (NEP, 2020). Given such an important role to a teacher for the nation and in the education system, it becomes all the more important to strengthen and refresh the skill base of teachers on a continuous basis. In higher education system, skill training avenues of professors, whether experienced or new entrants to the teaching profession, are quite few. In this pretext, the establishment of Teachers’ Reskilling Cell in the MJP Rohilkhand University on 21st May, 2021is a welcome step.
