Help us build our Future
The Citizens Foundation recognizes that the employees are its most important resource. We are committed to training and developing the entire workforce, particularly school staff. It reflects the commitment of TCF to impart quality education.
TCF training programs have a two-pronged approach. The Training team rigorously works with school heads to empower them by developing their leadership and management skills. Concurrently, there are intensive sessions for the teachers ranging from content support across subjects, pedagogical approaches and assessment methods to early childhood education, character building and critical thinking.
New teachers at TCF go through a mandatory pre-service training. They are initially given a self-study pack, while the Principal supports them by providing on-the-job training and constructive feedback. Later on, they are required to participate in a direct-interaction module.
A rigorous annual training program is organized every year in the summers for TCF teachers. This program focuses on both content-specific training and general pedagogical training. In training cycle 2011-12, 5964 teachers went through In-Service Training
TCF has a Principal's Academy with a rigorous program, serves to establish the school Principal’s role as both the instructional leader and administrator of her school. In 2011-12 514 principals were trained at the Principals Academy.
The training executed through selected master trainers from schools, who go through a comprehensive Training of Trainer (TOT) program. This equips them to successfully impart ideas and share experiences during PRESET and INSET.
The training modules combine themes emerging from needs analysis in teaching and learning, and those being highlighted in educational researches and trends. To ensure high standards of these manuals, the training team regularly participates in workshops and seminars, apart from researching and self-learning.

TCF Australian chapter had set itself a humble goal to support a standard primary school in the year 2014. Since the inception in November 2013, TCF has been allocating the funds to a primary school unit in Rajanpur; a remote area in Punjab where inhabitants are mostly farmers and in 2015 also initiated funding for a second primary unit, Muhammad Idrees Campus in Karachi, Sindh
The operational cost for running the primary unit for a period of 1 year is estimated at 30,000 AUD and with the contributions from our generous donors we have achieved the said targets and this would not have been possible without our supporters. Today, we are prepared and have ambitions to undertake new projects and extending our support to more children in Pakistan.
