RIVER - Institute for Educational Resources

The Rishi Valley Institute for Educational Resources (RIVER) has developed a unique multi-grade, multi-level integrated learning methodology for classes 1 to 5. RIVER offers practical training programmes of varying lengths for teachers, resource persons, educators and administrators, in order to help transpose the programme.

Programmes have been extended to formal and non-formal schools in states of Tamil Nadu, UP, Jharkhand and several districts of Andhra Pradesh. More recently, under the auspices of UNICEF we have entered into a 'Quality Improvement Programme' for 6 states of India. The programme will ultimately result in the setting up of 1000 multi-grade schools in one district in each of these schools.

We offer a variety of programmes for agencies that wish to learn about the multi-grade, multi-level schools

  • One-day exposure visits acquaint visitors with an overall sense of the programme.
  • Three-day workshops for administrators provide insights into organizational structure and working of the programme
  • Fifteen-day workshops for trained teachers give them hands on training in the multi-grade, multi-level methodology and orient them in classroom management.
  • Long-term Designers Workshops are offered for creating multi-grade, multi-level learning materials in languages other than Telugu. (More than one such programme may be needed to complete the process.)
