With MasterCoach, trainers can now build stronger social capital within India’s training and education sector learning from new trends, concepts, tools, consistent feedback and upskilling for 21st century classrooms.

MasterCoach aims to build the capacity of a trainer or teacher transforming them into change agents who positively influence and enrich a student’s life.

Our Goals

We aim to impact 500 trainers by 2020, equipping them to transform the way young people learn and create a shift in the learning processes  inside classrooms.

We strongly believe that thriving educators and trainers can create thriving classrooms that are learner centric and set young people for greater success in life.

Our Approach

Built on the power of online learning, MasterCoach is a planned journey for an educator and trainer, offering them flexibility to learn at their own pace. The course is built using principles of experiential learning and design thinking, inviting participants to understand themselves, build stronger relationship with learners and students and explore various dimensions of facilitation.

The learning trajectory is a fun, meaningful and creative combination using quizzes, discussion forums, puzzles, essays, videos, photos, assignments,  milestones and recognition, all this delivered in basic English. MasterCoach is built for 3 levels of engagement – Foundational, Exploratory and Immersive – offering multiple challenges and skill levels to a participant.

Each level has 4 modules, and can be completed at a learner’s pace within a 3 to four month time frame. The entire learning experience comprises 4 modules – Understanding The Self, The Learner, Facilitation Skills and  21st Century Classroom Management Skills for real world application and a trainer’s social capital.

Our Strategy

In a world that is shifting towards online-learning and with organizations and institutions inclined towards building 21st century skills in young people, most professionals in the training and teaching sector are beginning to search for skills, exposure, and opportunity to build their own capacity to work and build a 21st century classroom.

We believe our training transforms a trainer’s worldview, helping them understand students and peers. More importantly, it equips them to deliver curriculum and content inside classrooms using a blended learning approach, positively influencing student success.

Combining the power of online learning, customised modules and a strong peer circle, MasterCoach aims to be a wholesome, exciting and engaging program that sharpens a trainer’s skills and gives them a professional edge.
