  • As a teacher, you should:
    1. Enjoy communicating your understanding to others: There is definitely a performance element to most teaching. Our section on interpersonal skills, including effective speaking, covers this in more detail, and there is a great deal of overlap with presentation skills.
    2. Have confidence: You will need the confidence to look calm and professional even when tired and stressed. See our page: Building Confidence for more information.
    3. Have great organizational skills:
    • Have you prepared for the session and done any marking in time?
    • Have you kept what is needed for anyone in the group who was away?
    • If you are part of a teaching organization, have you fed back results to any interested colleagues?
    • You may find our page: Organizing Skills useful.
    1. Work effectively in groups: In a school or college, you may be part of a group that teaches at your level or within your subject. If so, you will have to agree between you what is to be taught and how to deal with any difficulties.
    2. Be able to deal with conflict: There may be students who need to be told to work harder, or a disagreement between students that you need to help to sort out.
    3. Motivate your students to do their best: This may require encouragement and/ or criticism, and probably a bit of both at different times.
    4. Empathies with your Students: If you can see that your students are exhausted, there may be no point in trying to teach a very complicated topic. You need to create a feeling that you are all working together towards the same goal. This means building up trust and rapport.
    5. Give feedback: Whether this takes the form of comments on performance or marking written work, it needs to be constructive. Offer praise as well as criticism whenever possible and tell your students how they can improve.


  • There were 16.5 crore children in the 0–6 years age group in India as of 2011 – 11.5 crore rural and 5 crore children in the urban areas. Additionally, there were 33,000 preschools in India in 2015. However, in India, statistics suggest that only 50% of the population has access to preschool education.

    As per Technavio, the preschool or child care market in India will grow impressively during the forecast period and will also post a CAGR of almost 22% by 2020. The market has a huge potential for growth, and this will attract several international schools and kindergartens to get into the market.
