In continuation Kuruvila Jacob Initiative’s efforts in enriching the learning process in schools, the trust has started a new training programme called ‘Heart of the matter’ in July 2018 to develop educators as student mentors. It is a holistic programme designed for getting a deeper understanding of adolescent problems and empowering educators with identification criteria and basic counseling skills. Our training partner is V excel Educational Trust and the faculty comprises of senior psychologists, educationists, school doctors, and psychiatrists

We had two batches with 60 teachers, a session, a curtain raiser kind of programme for the heads of schools and a 5day module for the Coordinators and Senior teachers of Grade VIII to XIII. This course is designed for Principals, heads, coordinators, and teachers of High Schools across all boards. This programme is also highly subsidized by the Kuruvila Jacob Initiative. The first batch is currently on.
