About Program

Quality Education Support Trust (QUEST) a Non-Governmental not-for-profit organisation is working on quality related issues in the field of Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and Teacher Education since April 2007. QUEST has now launched a Shikshak program which is dedicated towards continuous professional development of teachers.

Shikshak is a program that offers a unique opportunity for teachers and teacher educators to update their professional knowledge and skills through blended mode courses (face to face contact sessions and online mentoring). At present, these courses are available for pedagogy in Elementary Mathematics. Courses on language and literacy pedagogy and other subjects will be launched soon. Shikshak Courses are designed by experienced educators, who have been working on enhancing the quality of education for over 20 years.
