TFET Modules

The Techniques for Effective Teaching (TFET) Program is designed for preprimary and primary school teachers, some who have not had the opportunity for formal training or qualifications.

TFET is comprised of 14 modules, each consisting of a ten-minute video and accompanying lessons delivered through an interactive in-person training and print materials.

Featuring topics such as Positive Discipline and Classroom Management and Developing and Teaching with Creative, Low-Cost Resources, these lessons provide foundational concepts and clear guidelines for teachers to establish a creative, child-friendly learning environment that inspires interactive and exploratory learning. TFET is an effective and fun resource for school administrators to develop the professional growth of their teaching staff year after year.

Learn more about IDPF and Sesame Workshop’s collaborative approach, and how the TFET program is successfully impacting schools in the IDP Rising Schools Program.

If you would like to enhance your teacher education curriculum by creating a more playful learning environment and adding lively learning activities into your classroom schedule, please contact IDPF for more information about the TFET workbooks and manuals.
