The current global situation has paved the way for a faster adoption of the digital lifestyle to maintain continuity. In the midst of such a scenario, even teachers had to unlearn few things to learn the new normal way of life. Teaching students in a physical environment is very different than taking online classes. Teachers had to go through rigorous training sessions to be able to shift to this new module of teaching. While most of the students now attend classes online, a lot of the teachers still physically go to school to conduct these online classes. Hence, it’s time that we appreciate the teachers and salute their incessant dedication to help the students of today become responsible individuals of tomorrow.
Amit Gainda, CEO, Avanse Financial Services, said, “We understand the intrinsic value of teachers in shaping the young minds to fuel the success of the nation. We acknowledge their tireless enthusiasm even amidst this pandemic. They had to adapt to the new way of imparting knowledge using the digital platforms to continue supporting the learning curve of students. This offer is a small gesture curated by the Avanse Family to show our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for their efforts. Through this initiative, we aim to recognize the commitment made by the teachers and support their children as they commence their educational journeys. Additionally, we are delighted to use the platform to motivate more students to pursue teaching courses and to encourage the teacher community to invest in up-skilling programs to be able to continue imparting knowledge in the new normal environment.”
The recently revised National Education Policy has bestowed some positive educational reforms and empowered the teachers, acknowledging their pivotal role in the society. This is in anticipation of attracting the best talent and minds to choose teaching as their career option. The initiative is strongly in line with Avanse Financial Services’ holistic outlook towards supporting and sustaining the fundamental stakeholders to strengthen the foundations of the Indian education industry.
