About the Project 
The Teacher Empowerment Program (TEP) was launched in 2022 with the goal 
of improving student learning levels in 110 intervention schools in the Dibrugarh 
district. The programme aimed to improve students' numeracy and English 
literacy skills by improving teacher pedagogy and subject competency in English 
and Mathematics. LLF Resource Persons provided on-the-ground mentoring and 
regular school visits to teachers throughout the school year. The programme will 
have an impact on 220 teachers and 15000 students in grades 1-5. It is hoped 
that strong professional development, supported by onsite mentoring and 
support, will lead to overall development in teachers, eventually leading to an 
increase in student learning. 


To ensure the sustainability of the Teacher Empowerment program and transfer 
the ownership to the Govt. it is ideal to build the academic leadership capacity
