The programme supports teachers across the 52 districts of the state











The Government of Madhya Pradesh and Peepul have partnered to conceptualize, design and implement
CM Rise, to create a holistic learning ecosystem for the 300,000 teachers in the state, to help them
navigate the current and future times, and empower them to be effective last mile support, counsellors
and educators for their students and their families.

We began the journey with CM Rise Digital Teacher Training, leveraging the national platform DIKSHA of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, to deliver bite sized, modular training courses for the teachers. This has since
evolved into a three year program vision and plan for the state on teacher professional development.

The CM Rise Vision

Creating a concerted learning ecosystem that enables every teacher to support their students, linked to their realities and needs.

This programme aims to:

1. Equip teachers and education officials with the skills and knowledge
required to support children effectively through this COVID crisis (including
psychosocial support)

2. Create an ecosystem of continued development for teachers that is
personalized, need-based and supports societal and academic goals, to
build a more aware, capable and resilient teacher workforce for the future.


We have been at the heart of the programme design and implementation

Programme Strategy and Oversight

Nurturing the programme and setting direction to its growth

•Part of the Steering Committee and Working Committee of the programme

•Creating an integrated schedule of teacher development events: Training, Learning Communities, and Mentoring

•Building enabling structures for widening and deepening impact

Content curation and creation

Keeping the training #LightButRight

•Creating and curating bite-sized “light but right” training courses - comprising videos, audio clips and readings, leveraging our deep education expertise

•Creating training courses on high-criticality, cherry-picked topics, in close collaboration with state subject experts and Teacher Education Institutes

•Setting guidelines and standards for the course creation, to enable wider collaboration in the ecosystem

Technical integration and tracking

Partnering closely with the National Informatics Center (NIC) and DIKSHA to enable data-based decision-making

•Creating the monitoring backbone of the programme, e.g. through daily dashboards

•Large-scale data analytics to derive insights on programme access, usage and impact.

Field Support and Feedback

Debottlenecking field issues, and creating feedback mechanisms

•Set up of robust feedback mechanisms and support structures to enable issue debottlenecking – directly and through partnerships

•Establishing methods and SOPs for decentralised technical support to teachers (e.g. through block MIS teams)

•Targeted support to low-performing districts

The first step - CM Rise Digital Teacher Training :



An initial ‘hook’ to engage participants and get them thinking about the course subject

In a very short period of time and in the middle of a very tough situation,  the state government and Peepul have partnered to achieve something that was unthinkable even a few months ago. Our teachers have responded to the training modules with enthusiasm and have shared their ideas and feedback to help us make it even better. We are looking forward to pioneering teacher development together with Peepul.

The Peepul team has been excellent in their support especially by activating stakeholders at all levels in the education system, ensuring seamless coordination with multi-stakeholders for the programme. Their efforts in ensuring that this program has the enthusiastic participation and support of all teachers, academic officials, various institutes across the state, and other partners (technology and content collaborators) has been remarkable. This has been a valiant effort from Peepul and makes them a valued partner in this flagship endeavour of the Department of School Education"
