Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi’s (ITA) has accelerated a 45-day long education programme to improve learning skills among students. The school-based accelerated learning camps opened their doors to visitors from UNESCO, showcasing their extreme potential to improve learning outcomes of children in KP, said a press release on Wednesday.
As an evidence-led action to KP’s learning situation, ITA has developed and implemented a 45 day long accelerated learning programme- Chalo Parho Barho (CPB)- Let’s Read and Grow, designed to‘bridge’ learning gaps and improve learning preparedness for children in and out of school.
The programme allows for a conducive learning environment and the use of creative teaching methodology, while Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL). The programme facilitates out of school children (OOSC) to develop knowledge and skills to enter formal school in a grade appropriate to their age.
It is also designed to assist children in school, who are falling behind with their learning to catch up, thus reducing the chances of them dropping out. Each student’s learning outcomes are monitored three times over the 45 days in the form of a baseline, midline.—APP
