Telangana: School Education department introduces four-week bridge course

Hyderabad: In Telangana, the School Education department has introduced a four-week bridge course for students of Class second to tenth from the beginning of this academic year to accelerate learning recovery among students.

The State Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT) has developed the bridge course to be implemented in four levels.

The Class second to fifth are under level 1, Class sixth and seventh are in level 2 while Class eighth and ninth are in level 3 and Class tenth in level 4. The programme will also have an assessment every two weeks.

The learning levels of students have been affected due to closure of educational institutions for two academic years following the Covid-19 pandemic.

This four-week course is expected to help students quickly relearn the basics of previous classes and prepare them for the fresh academic year.
