Affiliation of these schools are either with the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), or the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE), or the Kerala State Education Board. Most private schools use English as a medium of instruction. However, government run schools often offer both English and Malayalam as the medium of instruction. The Kerala State Education Department gives special attention to the primary education. At least 5 primary schools will be found in even the remotest of villages in Kerala and the approximate number of lower primary schools are 6,726 (Class 1-4) and upper primary schools are 2,968(Class 5-7) . The primary schools in Kerala include private aided, private unaided and government schools. The literacy awareness places Kerala as a hotspot for teachers seeking Teaching jobs.

Despite having a number of Teachers' Training Institutes in Kerala, there is a constant demand for Teachers' Training Courses especially with specialization in English. Despite having fluency in English , the state looks for teachers who has the ability to overcome the mother tongue influence. This makes ATI's Pre and Primary Teachers' training course with Specialization in teaching English a suitable option as it emphasizes upon specialization in teaching English . This is an unique language learning method using interactive and communicative skills . Our input sessions on the 4 skills especially listening /speaking /reading / writing are especially effective in building the language ability (in this case English) of a candidate who may be from the vernacular medium. The activity based teaching method makes it easy for a learner to accept a language in which he / she may not feel comfortable otherwise.
Apart from that the course combines the theoretical as well as the practical aspects of both the Pre and Primary Education with real life experience that equips a candidate to effectively handle any problematic classroom situation. Most of the Teacher Training Courses focus on either the pre-primary aspect or the primary aspect with little or no emphasis on the current educational trends. Our Teachers Training course has an eclectic outlook which combines the progressive trends with the traditional trends.
