    • It also provides access to NCERT textbooks and lessons, following the regular school curriculum.
  • States, government bodies and even private organisations, can integrate DIKSHA into their respective teacher initiatives based on their goals, needs and capabilities.

Aim:

  • National Initiative for School Heads’ and Teachers’ Holistic Advancement (NISHTHA) is a capacity building programme for improving the quality of school education through integrated teacher training.
  • It aims to build competencies among all the teachers and school principals at the elementary stage.

Implementation:
