C. Cluster Resource Centre

There are 4088 CRCs functioning in all the Districts in the State. Cluster Resource Centres have been functioning as Centres of teacher empowerment, where the teachers share their experiences and innovative practices in the teaching learning processes. The monthly CRC meetings have been primarily used for sharing innovative practices in classrooms by the teachers. The meetings have now been used for discussing the implementation and strengthening of ABL Methodology and Active Learning Methodology. Thus, the teachers are also trained on effective use of these methodologies during these meetings. The details of training given in CRCs are given under In-service Teacher Training. The capacity-building initiatives adopted by the State both for the teachers and BRTEs have resulted in improved classroom processes and improvement in achievement levels of children.
