As part of a larger collaboration with state education departments, and in an attempt to scale up our Train-the-Trainer intervention, a cascade model of MasterCoach was designed. Quest Alliance directly worked with a cadre of Master Trainers, who then cascade this training to others within their own institutions or regions. This model, similar to the cascade type intervention in the Anandshala program, allows for deeper engagement with principals and leaders of institutions as well as state departments. It also helps in the facilitation of employability and pedagogical skills.
MasterCoach, our blended learning model for professional trainer development, is now available in Hindi, Gujarati and English. These courses are available on QuestApp and give trainers the flexibility of choosing only the online aspects which combine all synchronous and asynchronous elements.

"My aim is to make every student in my classroom realize their potential, that they may not even be aware of sometimes. After the ToT, I’m using different approaches to encourage students to push their boundaries, come out of their comfort zones and enrich their skills."
