From June to November 2016, NNLPI MLE project team conducted a series of curriculum development and material development workshops in Dhading Besi, Dhading district. Participants representing teachers, SMC and parents from the programme implementing school as well as teachers from neighbouring government schools in Tipling and Sertung attended the workshop. The workshop focused on developing the kindergarten curriculum and materials as well as the curriculum for Western Tamang language as a subject for Kindergarten to Grade 3.
In 2017-2018, the MLE project team will continue to work with the Western Tamang community to develop Grade 1 to 3 supplementary materials for mother tongue and transition into Nepali and English. Teacher training will also be conducted before and during the program to build up local teachers’ capacity to implement the program.
