British Council collaborated with Digital Empowerment Foundation to pilot its ‘English and Digital for Girl’s Education (EDGE)’ programme in India. Before implementing the project on ground, a two day training session was conducted. Project implementers were given thorough orientation in to the programme and training on how to work with the content material as well as how to deliver activity based learning for students at their respective centres.
The EDGE training programme was then launched in five CIRCs namely Wazirabad and Kapashera in Delhi and Mungaska, Bahadurpur and Chandauli in District Alwar of Rajasthan. Designed especially for adolescent girls aged between 13 to 17 years, the course programme is geared with the concept of ‘learning English with digital tools’ and adopts peer-learning format.
