Hyderabad: To accelerate the resumption of learning among students from the start of the school year, the School Education Department has set up a four-week bridging course for students in classes II to X.

This bridging course, designed and developed by the State Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT), a wing of the Department of School Education, will be implemented in four levels. Classes II to V are below Level 1, Classes VI and VII to Level 2, Classes VIII and IX to Level 3 and Class X to Level 4. The program will also feature an assessment every two weeks.

Students’ learning levels have been shaken due to the closure of educational institutions for two academic years following the Covid-19 pandemic. This four-week course will help students quickly relearn the basics of previous courses and prepare them for the new academic year.

The department has also introduced a three-month school readiness module, a game-based school readiness module, for students in Class I. The module which is in three languages, namely Telugu, English and Chinese. urdu, will help teachers ensure that all children are exposed to a warm and welcoming environment when they enter Class I, leading to the learning process in a smooth, fearless and joyful way. .

SCERT on Tuesday issued deeds directing all DEOs, RJDSEs and other relevant officials to implement the programs for the 2022-23 academic year. Materials for the School Readiness Module and Bridge Courses have been made available on the website www.scert.telangana.gov.in.
