Mumbai Implementation Team

Project Description

The CEIAR-TISS Implementation team works closely with the state implementation partners and the government agencies involved. The role of the implementation teams is to establish the relevance and viability of CLIx and to demonstrate its ability to contribute to teaching-learning processes at scale. These teams closely interact with the other CLIx teams to design the implementation approach of both curricular and Teacher Professional Development offerings in the various states. The primary responsibility of implementation is to prepare the ground, work with developmental groups and schools to implement the programme and build an ecosystem for its sustenance. Through such collaborative efforts, the intention is to develop a working model for the effective implementation of CLIx.

          Garima Singh Gomber

          Senior Programme Manager, Center for Education, Innovation & Action Research, TISS

            I am a dental surgeon by training, and my interest and experience are in the social sector. I gathered immense practical exposure in this field while working as a programme lead for a WHO public health project in Uttar Pradesh. I worked on building a sustainable community-level model for improving child and maternal health. I also presented the findings of this study at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s annual conference in London (2016). Here, at CLIX, I am expanding my learning horizon by working as a senior programme manager in the Implementation Team. Coming from a public health background, I aim to study the convergence of health and education eventually.
