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 of the teachers and empower them to 
ensure the academic improvement of students in achieving the learning outcomes.
