In our journey so far, we have collaborated with these amazing companies,
organisations that help us get a step closer to achieving our mission.
Rural Teacher Fellows Programme
Ignis currently supports 30 government schools with a total strength of about 4000 students in the rural mandals of Khammam District. Telangana. Under the initiative, Ignis Careers hire and train teacher aspirants from the region where the programme is implemented. They receive the fellowship for one year in slightly better off places and 2 years in remote places where the skills of the fellows are poor.
While the Rural Teacher Fellows Programme primarily uses course material prepared for the English and Life Skills Lab. In remote areas and areas with unique cultural contexts, we develop culturally-appropriate complementary learning material.
Research and Capacity Building
Ignis is fuelled by its best in class research which develops curriculum that is both age and culturally appropriate for the target beneficiaries. Ignis has supported English and Life Skills curriculum development for various organizations and foundations that work with vulnerable communities across India. The work involved studying the language skills of the students, mapping their exposure to English, mapping their cultural background, building a corpus of words appropriate for the developmental milestones and putting together a curriculum based on these findings.
We also support organizations in developing educational support programs appropriate for their mission, suitable for the cultural contexts that they operate in. This involves skills survey, field based research, curriculum development, training and capacity building, continual monitoring and implementation support.
