This year also Shikshak Parv 2021 was organized from 5th to 17th September 2021 through virtual mode. Policymakers, administrators, academicians, experts, school principals, head-teachers, and teachers participated in the ShikshakParv to share their experiences, learnings and discuss the way forward to realize the aspirations of NEP-2020.

The teacher training modules of NISHTHA have been aligned with the recommendations of NEP 2020.
