KRP Selection Process:

States and UTs conduct training of teachers under various schemes and
programmes and they have their own mechanism for the selection of quality
KRPs. However, in this integrated teacher training program, KRPs are required to
cover all the elementary stage teachers and school heads in the States and UTs,
therefore, selection of KRPs needs to be done in a more systematic manner with
proper care. Some points, which need to be kept in view while selecting a KRP,

1) She/he should be regular employee (teacher educator or teacher) having
more than five years of experience of teaching at the elementary or secondary

2) She/he should have an experience of providing training for at least two years.

3) KRPs need to be selected from every subject area so that when SRG is
formulated with five KRPs (one each from mathematics, science, social
science, State language and English) and one SRP (to deal with leadership
related issues along with subject area in which she/he has expertise) it will be
able to deal with all the required sessions in the block level teacher training.

4) Further, to impart quality training and reduce the loss of knowledge while
communicating, KRP should have the following competencies:

 Active Listening
 Participatory Engagement
 Public Speaking
 Session Management
 Dealing with Ambiguity

An example of KRP selection process already in place in Madhya Pradesh is
detailed in Annexure- I.
