WHAT WE DO

We have planned various programs through TEACH with an aim to reach maximum beneficiaries. TEACH wants to be the novel medium to help them lead their lives with dignity, independently & successfully by assisting in their personal, professional and social development.

TEACH caters to educating the deaf students through two modes of operations.

Higher Education

We cater to students in our centre who have cleared their tenth exam in English or vernacular medium. The students having a good grasp on English language are directly admitted to the eleventh standard. However students with no to very little exposure to English undergo our 3 year program. Wherein in the first year which is our Preparatory Year, they are taught English and Maths which ideally is done in school for regular students. Currently we have 64 students spread across three batches, Preparatory year, FYJC and SYJC. To decide whether the student will go through our 3 year program or to eleventh standard; we have designed a test wherein the students attempt the same and will testify the students’ knowledge and command over spoken & written English. This test will contain identifying and writing words, sentences, paragraphs, etc. which ideally is the syllabus for the preparatory year. For the students in the preparatory year, they are prepared for the SSC English language paper which they attempt in the year end. Post clearing the board’s paper, they are advanced to FYJC in the coming year. In FYJC and SYJC, they are taught the regular subjects from Maharashtra Boards.

School Transformation Project (STP)

Our second mode of operations is to tap the deaf schools and cater to the lack of English as a subject in school itself. We tie up with schools to teach the students English through our ELP (English Language Program) under our School Transformation Project prepared for English language inclusion in the schools. ELP & Maths are fragments of the School Transformation Project (STP). We are yet start Maths in schools. With this we aim to address the lack of English issue in school itself; so that students directly enter FYJC rather than undergoing the 3 year program. In the long run, we want to focus on getting the students directly to mainstream higher education in line to regular students through TEACH.
