The process of observation helps the student teachers build an understanding of the components of environments where children are nurtured in standard and low income settings. Additionally, the student
teachers will get to observe the real-life application of prevalent teaching learning methods in ECCE, thereby helping them contextualise their learnings in the classroom.
Internship: (225 Hours)
Student teachers are expected to intern with pre-schools, kindergartens, nursery schools, balwadis, anganwadis, NGOs, crèches, day care centres, mother toddler programs, after school activity classes or other
institutions providing ECE programs. Student Teachers and ECE Institutes are provided with guidelines for internship, to ensure effective learning and optimal experience for students. This practical internship
spans over 12 weeks or 60 days for 3 hours a day.
Here the student teachers are expected to be involved in observing, planning and managing the classroom with the head teacher or the facilitator at the institution. The role of the student teacher is
to build an understanding of active involvement and optimum interaction with children. Student teachers are expected to plan and implement activities across areas of:
- Music and movement
- Circle time activity
- Literacy & Numeracy

- Picture talk on a concept
- Outdoor activity
- Fine motor activities

All the student teachers are required to document their learning through internship report, lesson plans and reflective journals which would be evaluated by the trainer.
A standardized and centralised assessment mechanism is developed. A blend of quantitative and qualitative assessment, as well as ongoing and cumulative feedback helps give a rounded assessment of learners.
The ongoing assessment is carried out in the form of student documentation, submissions, voice of learners, classroom participation and peer and individual learning work, submitted to the trainers.
Summative assessment is conducted at the end of the course, to ensure learning goals have been met, and learners are ready to implement knowledge and skills in the real-world scenario. Summative assessments
are focused towards assessing readiness to work with children and early years programs, hence have an objective, experiential and non-theoretical bend.
Students are required to maintain a mandatory attendance of 75% during the theory sessions and 75% during the Field Practicum elements of the course.
