EDMC has decided to send its teaching staff to foreign universities. The corporation wishes to allow the staff an opportunity to upgrade their skills and in turn improve the education standard. 

EDMC (East Delhi Municipal Corporation) has decided to send its teaching staff abroad in a bid to help them upgrade their skills and gain international exposure. With this move, EDMC hopes to improve the the standard of education in corporation schools. 

As part of the scheme, the corporation will select 2 teachers from its current staff in the first year and will sponsor their entire teacher-training related program. A budget of 75 Lakhs INR per annum has been approved for every selected teacher. The funding will take care of the tuition fee, accomodation, living allowance, study material like books as well as travel.

In order to ensure that the selected teachers take the program seriously, a regular reporting of the performance of teachers during the training has been requested by the corporation for further funding. Moreover, proper completion of the program has been made mandatory, as failure in doing so will require the teacher to pay back the amount spent by the corporation on their training.

EDMC has invited applications from the teachers who've been employed at the corporation for over 10 years with an excellent professional record and are not more than 42-year-old.

The maximum duration permitted for a course is 3 years. 

Under the scheme, the teachers will be studying at one of the top 100 institutes that feature in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings every year. Subjects that teachers can take up at these institutes include Public Education, Developments in Education, Special Education and the Use of Digital Technology in Education.

Vikas Anand, Commissioner for the corporation, said that EDMC will sponsor the entire education of the teacher. With the program, the corporation hopes to fill in any teaching gaps, as required. 

The decision of foreign training is not new in Government authorities, yet EDMC could be praised for its bold and thoughtful steps for taking initiative in the training of its teaching staff.
