They have done several short and long term training programmes for Montessori and primary schools from reputed institutions. Established teacher trainers and conduct workshops at several schools. The workshop content varies as per the need of the institution but mainly centres around developing English language using Montessori, Froebel and progressive methods of teaching.
The Fabindia School Workshop was designed for the primary and pre-primary teachers and focused on building literacy and numeracy skills from the earliest classes. This was incorporated with age/class specific sensory and motor development activities. The sessions were largely inter-active and dwelled on building the four skills of language learning - Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. The methodology introduced was not from a particular school of thought , but an amalgamation of best practices in progressive schools. Mr. Ghosh's sessions focussed on developing imagination and creativity in children from the earliest stage and incorporating art/ craft in the classroom.
