SPELT holds a free Academic session every month for members and non-members. These sessions are being organized since the inception of SPELT for 35 years. 420 sessions have been conducted till October 2019. It is also an interesting fact that no session has ever been cancelled or missed due to any issue or the city’s condition.
Trainers and experts are invited from different institutions to conduct training workshops on various important topics related to English Language teaching and classroom teaching practices. Non-member participants are also encouraged to attend these sessions. However, they cannot get a certificate; SPELT members, on the other hand, can choose to get a certificate by paying Rs. 100 only.
The monthly Academic sessions are a great source of growth and continuing professional development for teachers, particularly those who cannot afford expensive trainings. Participants learn innovative techniques from these sessions and take back ideas to apply in their regular teaching practices. There are many regular attendees who do not miss any Academic session.
