Abstract


This article explores the programs and facilities available for teacher empowerment in Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions (TSWREIS) and quality based education to the marginalized children. This paper analyses the professional development of teachers against the background of acquisition of skills for the 21st century. Teachers and students of TSWREIS are working day and night with utmost dedication to catapult the Society to the global map within six years. The TSWREIS carved a niche for itself by its seamless experimentation and syncing with the emerging trends in the education space. Residential schools achieved 96.63% in SSC, 84.31% in Intermediate, and about 85% in Degree results in the academic year 2018-19.  In 2019, 53 students got admission into MBBS, 20 in IIT's, 48 in NIT besides getting admissions in professional institutions like Delhi University, Ajim Premji University, and TATA Institute of Social Sciences. 

Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS) under the aegis of the Ministry of Scheduled Caste Development, Government of Telangana, has been passionately working to place the poorest among the Scheduled Castes in the prosperous orbit through quality education for the last 35 years. This Society, with 268 institutions with about 1,50,000 students, has been providing quality education in English medium upto graduation. TSWREIS with 1, 49,680 students cover roughly 10% of cohorts among all SCs in Telangana. TSWREIS runs high schools, junior colleges, and degree colleges covering both arts and sciences.
