LAHORE - The Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) has planned to introduce free vocational training for the deserving students of matric classes enrolled in its 2000 partner schools in 29 districts to enable them to earn their livelihood after the matriculation exams. Chairman PEF, Raja Muhammad Anwar, stated this while presiding over a departmental meeting of 30 partner NGOs involved in the training/capacity building of partner school teachers at PEF here on Saturday. DMD (operation) Tanveer Ahmad Zaffar, Project Officers Sadia Zia, Munazza Zameer, Ali Khan, Mariam Shakir and others also attended the meeting. The meeting reviewed in detail the joint collaboration for the training of teachers for improving their capacity building. The training programme is launched to ensure quality education in low-income schools where teachers are usually low paid and less-educated. Raja Anwar told the meeting that PEF training modules have been designed to sensitise the teachers about the menace of corporal punishment, importance of human rights, child psychology and education of students with learning disabilities. Raja Anwar also impressed upon the partner NGOs to foster the universally accepted principles of human rights and child rights, besides improving the communication skills of the teachers. He maintained that PEF is doing a great job by providing educational opportunities to the poor strata.
